Abstract

Energy harvesting techniques have been developed more than a decade and received much attention in realizing long-term energy autonomous microsystems. Many converter topologies and circuit techniques have been reported to effectively convert the harvested energy to usable outputs. In this paper, major green energy sources as well as the equivalent circuits are reviewed. In addition, maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technique and power conversion topologies are also included.
