Energy Harvesting Board
The Adaptive® energy harvesting board ADEH-P-A is optimised for either a very low input voltage thermoelectric generator (TEG) or a photovoltaic source. Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technology and a high efficiency boost converter have also been added for optimum operation.
The board is a PCB that has been optimised for electrical power generation from heat energy, produced by a TEG or a solar panel. Both of which can be bought online.
The board has been sectioned to allow for three independent functions:
- Ultra low power TEG power harvester with storage capacitor and MPPT control
- Low power photovoltaic with MPPT control
- Low loss OR-ing power rail controller
- Power rail controller
- Sectioned for three independent functions
- MPPT technology
- High efficiency boost converter
