  • Energy Harvesting with the Wiegand Effect

    PostedMonday, October 29,2018 at 10:31 AM

    With the growing interest in small distributed sensors and other electronic devices
    aimed at collecting data for new application, including the “Internet of Things”, more
    attention is being paid to technologies for energy harvesting. That is, engineers
    and scientists have been on the lookout for ways to enable stand-alone devices
    to collect small amounts of energy from the surrounding physical environment to
    power an isolated electronic circuit. Reducing or eliminating the need for external
    power sources or batteries make devices more self-sufficient, more reliable, and
    reduces maintenance requirements. The Wiegand effect is a proven technology for
    harvesting small amounts of electrical power from mechanical motion.
