Abstract:

This paper reports the development of a fully functional self-contained microgenerator system which can power various portable electronics using only compressed gas. The system incorporates a previously reported axial-flux. permanent-magnet micromachine. an off-the-shelf air-turbine assembly. and self-powered electronics into a compact, standalone device. The purpose is to demonstrate the migration of a MEMS-based microgenerator from a bench-top laboratory experiment to a self- contained prototype for practical applications.
