Self-Powered Dynamic Systems in the Framework of Optimal Uncertainty Quantification


The energy that is needed for operating a self-powered device is provided by the energy excess in the system in the form of kinetic energy, or a combination of regenerative and renewable energy. This paper addresses the energy exchange issues pertaining to regenerative and renewable energy in the development of a self-powered dynamic system. A rigorous framework that explores the supply and demand of energy for self-powered systems is developed, which considers uncertainties and optimal bounds, in the context of optimal uncertainty quantification. Examples of regenerative and solar-powered systems are given, and the analysis of self-powered feedback control for developing a fully self-powered dynamic system is discussed.
