Enspect: a Complete Tool using Modeling and Real Data to Assist the Design of Energy Harvesting Systems

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

Energy harvesting is the process by which energy (often solar or thermal) is captured from the environment to power small electronic devices. The available energy is often spatially and temporally variant, which makes the potential for power generation difficult to estimate. In this paper we present Enspect: a complete tool which comprises a portable logger that collects real environmental data, and analysis software which models the performance of energy harvesting systems in that application. It enables components to be chosen and exchanged, and models long-term system behavior. It has been demonstrated with photovoltaic and thermoelectric devices, but its modular design means that it can be expanded to include other harvesting types.
