Hydraulic Pressure Energy Harvesting for Wireless Sensing

Download Now


Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed devices to generate electricity from pressure ripple at power levels that enable wireless sensing and communications, among other applications. In a hydraulic system, an energy harvesting technology might be integrated with health monitoring sensors and eliminate the need for batteries or wires providing power to individual sensors; this would reduce maintenance contact and eliminate potential points of failure.

Read this white paper to learn how hydraulic pressure can help you harvest energy for low power wireless devices.
