Abstract

In this presentation, we introduce an experimental demonstration for wireless energy harvesting application. Bluetooth low energy (BLE) unit connected to an array of sensors is used in conjunction with the proposed RF wireless rectenna. The rectenna is composed of a circularly polarized spiral antenna and a microstrip RF voltage doubler rectifier. The scheme shows a constant voltage charge of a super-capacitor (0.1pF) within the voltage limits of optimum BLE operation. The temperature and humidity sensing system was tested in real operation for more than 20 hours. The delivered voltage was maintained over 2.7 V that corresponds to the proper operating voltage of the BLE.
