Ambient Energy Harvesting: a Feasibility Study and Design of Test Circuits
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10,5 credits / 16 HE creditsStudent thesis
This report investigates the various methods of harvesting and storing the ambient energies which surround us. The concept and interest of harvesting ambient energy has been prevalent for some time. Mainly seen as an alternative and smarter way of storing energy for instant or later usage for low power devices. Typically to avoid the excess use of pre-stored energy where energy already exists.
For this project, various energy harvesting methods will be examined in greater detail and to then be constructed together in a coherent way. Something which has yet to become more ubiquitous which therefore becomes a motivation for this thesis. To explore the possible outcomes of this implementation and if it will further the subject.
This device could have many applications in terms of charging other devices in remote or powerless locations. It can also serve as an alternative to traditional charging and by that showing that the charger could be just as good as any other socket charger could be.
