Energy Harvesting Using Micro Vertical Axis Wind Turbine VAWT

A demonstration video showcasing how a small energy harvester circuit (using an LTC3105) can be used to harvest energy from a small vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) enclosed in an aluminium flagpole mount and power a Blue CREE LED.

It is hoped that small energy harvesters will soon be universally incorporated within microelectronics such as IOT devices, sensor stations, WiFi routers, drones and wearable electronics. Incorporating energy harvesting helps devices become more autonomous as by including the ability to charge and power themselves using the environment.
