Abstract

Energy harvesting from salt water is a phenomenon that began in the 1970’s and should have reached its peak by today, but due to varying interests in the field and the growing potentials of other more promising sources, more work was required to fully establish it. Our research aims at identifying and comparing the existing techniques of energy harvesting and the methodology involved determining an effective technique for small scale applications of the method. Experimentation on the proposed technique involved electrolysis and determining the output at varying concentrations of solutions and was followed by circuit analysis for DC-DC boost applications designed in MATLAB for low power circuit applications, involving stepping up the input voltage to 5V for system enhancement. Small scale applications of energy harvesting needs more in depth study, and future work will be to develop a mechanism for providing more regulated power.
