Original Abstract

This paper deals with review and assessment of energy harvesting technologies applicable to special applications. These technologies harvest electrical energy from their surroundings using several physical principles. Surrounding of each technical system is enclosed by several types of ambient energy and this energy can be used for autonomous feeding of electrical devices. We can assume harvesting from mechanical energy of movement, vibration and shocks, solar and thermal energy, etc. Generally the amount of harvested energy is in very low level. However, a power consumption of modern electronic devices is in very low level too. Therefore these technologies can be very useful for autonomous supplying of many applications, for example autonomous electronics and diagnostic systems, wire-less sensors, wireless communications, etc. The autonomous energy harvesting sources will be described in this paper and the applicability for special applications will be evaluated.
