Exploiting renewable energy sources in place of rechearchable batteries for powering portable electronic equipments is an attractive perspective.

Abstract

Exploiting renewable energy sources in place of rechearchable batteries for powering portable electronic equipments is an attractive perspective. In practice, however renewable energy sources are highly unreliable and the power closure of an energy harvesting system depends on the power profile of the source, on the efficiency of the energy scavenger and oil the instantaneous power consumption of the system. In this paper we present an experimental setup that call be used to emulate the power behavior of all environmentally-powered system in order to support the early assessment of its power closure. We introduce the concept of "energy emulation", we outline the experimental setup and we report experimental results obtained for a simple case study.
