Abstract
In energy-harvesting applications, inductor-based switching dc/dc converters are usually employed to regulate the operating voltage of the energy transducer and to transfer the harvested energy to a storage unit. In such a context, this paper analyses the optimal inductor current of the converter that leads to maximum power efficiency. This is evaluated assuming a low-power photovoltaic (PV) module connected to a boost dc/dc converter operating in burst mode so as to reduce the switching losses....
