Photovoltaic mini-generators and fuel cells are the most feasible alternatives for applications where a high-density micropower supply is needed. This chapter will focus on photovoltaic and fuel cell technologies in powering microelectromechanical systems for smart energy management, such as bioimplantable devices or portable electronic devices. Sun sensors are devices that are being newly introduced into photovoltaic systems to improve their performance. The chapter ...
