Abstract

This paper investigates low power consumption in standalone devices and sensors that are difficult to access for power maintenance, using known battery types based on their chemical composition and discusses alternative power sources e.g. Ambient Radio Frequency (RF) harvested power than can be directly consumed or stored in batteries. Several types of battery technologies were tested to estimate the lifetime and the related power thresholds needed by micro-controllers or sensor boards to ensure proper operation over a minimum time within a network of devices as part of the requirements. Battery characterization of energy density, cell voltage and peak current were determined whenever possible as key comparison in power consumption within various power requests phases of these devices. A power consumption budget was discussed in experimental examples.
