RESUMO:

The rise of Smart Grids, Wireless Sensors Networks, and Internet of Things has produced a growing demand for alternative sources of power. Currently, batteries dominate the energy storage market for those technologies, but they are perishable sources characterized by the need for replacement at relatively short periods and the pollution of its waste. In order to find new power sources, many studies of harvesting mechanisms associated with thermal, solar, vibration, or electromagnetic waves have been carried out. The production of electric current using photovoltaic cells is a technique studied and developed more than two decades ago. However, it is still highly sensitive to low light conditions or at night time. Under these conditions, the energy extracted from electromagnetic waves can assume the demand for power. This technique is known as radiofrequency harvesting, and it uses rectennas to capture the energy of the environment. Radiofrequency harvesting faces problems like the low values of power density available in the environment, but it does not depend on the levels of light to produce energy. The idea of hybrid systems based on the alternate use of two energy sources guarantees the power every time the load needs. The research presented here aims to develop a hybrid solar and electromagnetic harvesting structure to support very low-power devices, mainly for indoors. This work presents the design, simulation, analysis, and prototyping of two coplanar patch antenna configurations with resonant frequency at 2.45 GHz integrated with solar cells. The consequences of the integration process are evaluated for both components: antennas and solar cells. Then, the principal results and conclusions of the work are presented. It was proved that solar cells could be used as radiating elements in antennas without the need to incorporate another type of metallization. However, variations on the area of an optimized solar cell bring as a consequence a considerable decrease of its power conversion efficiency, that depending on the operation conditions could turn unfeasible the use of the solar cell. Also, it is presented a methodology to characterize the interface antenna/rectifier as a function of the S parameters and its influence on the power conversion efficiency of the rectenna.
