Aim

The objective of the course is to provide an understanding of the design requirements and parameters for an energy supply system for embedded sensor systems. The acquired knowledge should enable the students to design an energy supply system fulfilling a given specification. It should also provide knowledge in modeling and simulation of components associated with energy supply systems.

Course objectives

Upon the completion of the course the students should be able to:
- Demonstrate a general understanding of the requirements of energy supplies for embedded sensor systems.
- Estimate power and energy consumption of the components of embedded sensor systems.
- Design power electronics circuits for a given specification.
- Evaluate best choice of energy storage for a given requirement specification.
- Characterize and estimate output power for energy harvesters.

Content

The course focuses on the components of energy supply systems and covers:
- A general overview of energy supply systems for embedded sensors for different applications.
- Techniques to reduce energy consumption in embedded sensor systems.
- Principles of power electronics circuits.
- Basic properties of energy storage devices.
- Principles of energy harvesting techniques.
