D7.3 - Mechanical energy converter study for lotic water sensor applications
Wireless sensor systems can help to improve or to expand instrumentation for environmental monitoring systems. For a autonomous power supply of such sensors, a mechanical converter solution will be proposed to convert energy using natural turbulences ever-present in lotic water. This contribution focusses (a) on the mechanical-to-electrical energy conversion using a piezoelectric bimorph and (b) on a suitable DC-DC converter supplying the wireless node built around the commercially available LTC3331 by Linear Technologies.doi:10.5162/sensor2015/d7.3 fatcat:fkqccfwk3rh5hku4ieovgpfd5u
