Power Gain from Energy Harvesting Sources at High Mppt Sampling Rates


Energy harvesting (EH) sources require the tracking of their maximum power point (MPP) to ensure that maximum energy is captured. This tracking process, performed by an MPP tracker (MPPT), is performed by periodically measuring the EH transducer’s output at a given sampling rate. The harvested power as a function of the sampling parameters has been analyzed in a few works, but the power gain achieved with respect to the case of a much slower sampling rate than the EH source’s frequency has not been assessed so far.
