Micro Energy Storage Systems in Energy Harvesting Applications: Analytical Evaluation towards Future Research Improvement

Micromachines (Basel). 2022 Mar 25;13(4):512. doi: 10.3390/mi13040512.


During the last decade, countless advancements have been made in the field of micro-energy storage systems (MESS) and ambient energy harvesting (EH) shows great potential for research and future improvement. A detailed historical overview with analysis, in the research area of MESS as a form of ambient EH, is presented in this study. The top-cited articles in the field of MESS ambient EH were selected from the Scopus database, and based on articles published from 2010 to 2021, and the number of citations. The search for these top-cited articles was conducted in the third week of December 2021. Mostly the manuscripts were technical and contained an experimental setup with algorithm development (65%), whereas 27.23% of the articles were survey-based. One important observation was that the top 20 selected articles, which are the most-cited articles in the different journals, come from numerous countries of origin. This study revealed that the MESS integrated renewable energy sources (RESs) are an enhancement field of research for EH applications. On the basis of this survey, we hope to identify and solve research problems in the field of MESS and RESs integration, and provide suggestions for future developments for EH applications.
