Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter, recent work is presented on different interface circuits for TEG energy harvesting systems. Further, the inductor-based boost converter is introduced as the main interface circuit for TEG harvesting systems. After that, different digital control circuits are explored for inductor-based boost converter. This includes zero current control, TEG polarity circuits, maximum power point tracking methods, and startup circuits.
