Energy Harvesting and Power Management System

Team: Joule Thief Electric Engergy Harvesting Team

Program: Electrical and Computer Engineering

This project looks at a DC-DC boost converter joule thief that explores the augmentation of a limited amount of voltage in a battery. A joule thief underlined by bipolar junction transistors is constructed and a subsequent PCB prototype is made to enhance the functioning of the converter attached to the voltage source.
