Energy Harvesting Book Chapter

30th June 2010

My book chapter on "Wireless Devices and Sensor Networks," that I co-authored with Dr Alex Weddell and Dr Nick Harris has just been published! The book, titled "Energy Harvesting for Autonomous Systems", is published by Artech House, and edited by Professor Neil White and Dr Steve Beeby. The majority of my chapter is (at least currently) available to read on Google Books.

The chapters of the book are:
  1. Introduction
  2. Wireless Devices and Sensor Networks
  3. Photovoltaic Energy Harvesting
  4. Kinetic Energy Harvesting
  5. Thermoelectric Energy Harvesting
  6. Power Management Electronics
  7. Energy Storage
  8. Case Study: Adaptive Energy-Aware Sensor Networks
  9. Concluding Remarks
"This unique resource provides a detailed understanding of the options for harvesting energy from localized, renewable sources to supply power to autonomous wireless systems. You are introduced to a variety of types of autonomous system and wireless networks and discover the capabilities of existing battery-based solutions, RF solutions, and fuel cells. The book focuses on the most promising harvesting techniques, including solar, kinetic, and thermal energy. You also learn the implications of the energy harvesting techniques on the design of the power management electronics in a system. This in-depth reference discusses each energy harvesting approach in detail, comparing and contrasting its potential in the field."

The EEE Students and I at USMC
I have just returned from a fortnight's intensive teaching visit to the University of Southampton's Malaysia Campus (USMC), at EduCity@Iskandar Nusjaya. At the campus, I gave 21 lectures to students over 8 days, primarily on Digital Electronics, as part of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree that we deliver there. Our four year 2+2 MEng EEE degree will see the students spend the first two years studying in Malaysia before transferring to Southampton, UK, for the final two year... [more]
