Energy and Power Distribution

Date of Publication: Sep 23, 2015
This unique report reflects the new reality that energy harvesting - creation of off-grid electricity where it is needed, using ambient energy - is now one subject from microwatts for wireless sensors to kilowatts for vehicles and buildings. This is because it increasingly involves the same technologies, locations and companies. Vehicles, for example, need everything from wireless sensors driven by local harvesting providing milliwatts to traction battery charging from harvesting that can reach many kilowatts. Some technologies previously only capable of signal power are now proving scalable to higher power. It is all one business now but, for the coming decade, the largest addressable value market lies in the range of one watt to 10 kW so this will receive particular attention.

This report presents the forecasts for energy harvesters for 2015 through 2020 on a volume and value basis. Sales values in terms of dollar sales are presented in U.S. dollars, while sales values in terms of unit sales are presented in thousand units.  The choice of thousands as a denomination unit was dictated by the shipment volumes for specific categories, which would have otherwise appeared too insignificant.  It is important to note that energy harvesters can power wireless sensor nodes, which will ship by the billions in the future.  Energy harvesters will also power several other device categories that will not be as prolific in number as wireless nodes, but that will experience tremendous growth as well.

A solid state transformer is a multistage device which typically comprises input stage, high-frequency transformer, and output stage. The output stage can be configured as per the need and verities of loads; therefore, it provides the output in either form of current (AC and DC). This feature eliminates the need of additional AC to DC converter and thus reduces the cost of the system. Though the cost of a solid state transformer is higher than their rational counterpart, it is expected that the deployment of a solid state transformer in an electricity distribution network would increase the overall system efficiency by 8%-10%.
