Effect of Load Resistance and Power variation on RF Energy Harvester Circuit

Authors(2) :-Deepti Kushwah, Anshul Agarwal

In this research paper author proposed 4 different circuit networks for RF energy harvesting. Three circuits were compared on the basis of variation in the load resistance, and all these variable load circuits were compared with the variation of power and comparison of the same is presented. Three circuits with single, double and triple stages of the rectifier is presented and compared. It has found that at the value of 85KΩ of the load resistance, all three circuits showed good efficiency and high output voltage. And when power was varied then at -6dBm of power better efficiency and output voltage has been achieved.
