A DC-DC Boost Converter for Energy Harvesting

Yogita Dahiya, Bal Krishan


Energy harvesting is an emerging technology used for wireless remote and local devices. For powering these devices such as wireless nodes battery is required which demands replacement after discharging. Energy harvesting technique helps in developing battery-free operation for these devices. To do so we need power management system which itself is power efficient. These power management systems may use many technologies but one of them is DC-DC boost converter using energy or power generated by a thermoelectric generator or a solar energy. In this paper, we design the boost converter, which provides the constant DC voltage of 4 V at the input of the 500 mV.
