Abstract

WSN have been extensively researched during recent years helping in diverse employment of sensor networks in various systems and applications. One of the key challenges that preclude the sustained operation of these networks is their limited energy resources. One of the most critical limiting factors for a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is its battery life. Therefore, a very desirable feature of WSN would be its rechargability to remain operational over longer period of times. The wireless sensor node, being a limited form factor device, can only be equipped with a limited power source. In this paper, we have presented several existing techniques for recharging a sensor node in wireless sensor networks.
