Improving the Lifetime of WSNs using Energy Harvesting Techniques

Naveen N | Akhila S [6]

Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) play a pivotal role in the practical implementation of the IoT across various domains such as smart agriculture, intelligent buildings, urban infrastructure, and industrial monitoring. Typically, these nodes rely on limited energy sources, often in the form of non-rechargeable batteries. The duration for which a WSN can operate, usually measured in days, depends on several factors, including the duty cycle, deployment scenario, and state of charge (SoC) of their batteries. To deal with the challenge of constrained energy availability, an innovative solution that harnesses ambient solar energy to recharge the batteries of WSN nodes has been suggested. However, the successful implementation of solar energy harvesting faces numerous challenges, including variations in temperature, solar panel efficiency, difficulties in solar energy forecasting, power interruptions, and various environmental and natural factors. The primary purpose of this study is to extend the lifespan of WSN networks through the application of solar energy harvesting techniques. MATLAB simulations has been done to prove the suggested solution for reliability and energy efficiency of wireless sensor networks by effectively utilizing solar energy resources.
