This paper focuses on improving the energy conversion process for low-voltage energy harvester powered wireless sensors by optimising the conversion stages for pulsed sensor operation. The proposed circuit has been designed to operate efficiently with both a low-voltage low-power energy harvester source and a low-power pulsed load. This ensures that continuous conversion losses are kept to a minimum and power is only delivered to the sensor when required. This has shown an increase in energy delivered to a sensor of up to 10% versus that of the best existing solution.
