Abstract

Electromagnetics has an important role in power and energy industry. As the demand for power increases, need for alternate energy sources are essential. Radio frequency (RF) energy transfer and harvesting techniques becomes one of the solution. Basic RF harvesting circuit consist of 3 elements. This can be achieved by using a rectenna combination of rectifier and antenna. The antenna is to receive RF signal and rectifier to convert RF to DC signal In between an impedance matching circuit .This converted power is used by certain low power devices. This paper presents an possible sources applications and design configuration and current scenerios .
