Abstract

This paper presents a designing a battery-less piezoelectric based energy harvesting interface circuits with 300mV step-up voltage. A technique (i.e., DC-DC Step-Up converter) has chosen for designing the startup voltage with low voltage energy (i.e., 300mV). The proposed method consumes very little power, and is especially suitable for the ambient environmental source, where energy harvested power is very low. The energy harvesting interface circuit consists of MOSFET bridge ac-dc rectifier, voltage regulator, dc-dc step-up converter and an energy storage device with capacitor at the output terminal, replacing this by external battery. This paper will study results these important issues regarding the efficiencies of the energy harvesting power conversion interface circuits considering the storage device low voltage. The achievement of our development circuit is able to boost up minimum 1.67 V for input DC voltage of 300mV. The overall circuit efficiency is greater than 80% following the simulation results. This research has focused on the application of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) and bio-medical device can be operated without battery.
