dc.description.abstractThe technological community is highly focused in the area of solar energy harvesting. Specifically, these efforts can be observed in the design of more efficient power management systems which can extract the maximum power from the solar panel spending very low amounts of power. This work presents a power management architecture for an On-Chip solar energy harvesting system applied to low power applications. A functional Power Management Circuit with Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) was designed and simulated, using a 0.13 um CMOS technology, to provide an output voltage of 1.2 V by using just one external inductor. The proposed fractional open circuit voltage MPPT circuit, along with the DC/DC converter controller, allows the system to achieve efficiencies of up to 81% even under low sun irradiation conditions.en_US
dc.description.abstractEn los ultimos a~nos la comunidad tecnologica ha estado grandemente enfocada en la generacion de energia electrica a traves del sol, esto puede evidenciarse con la constante aparicion de sistemas de manejo de energia solar mas efcientes, los cuales extraen la mayor cantidad de energia solar posible con un consumo de potencia cada vez mas bajo. Este trabajo presenta un sistema de manejo de energia solar dise~nado para ser implementado en circuito integrado y trabajar con aplicaciones de bajo consumo de potencia. En la realizacion de este proyecto un sistema de manejo de energia solar capaz de extraer la mayor cantidad de potencia posible de un panel solar fue dise~nado y simulado usando una tecnologia CMOS de 0:13um, el cual genera una salida de 1:2 voltios usando solo un inductor fuera del circuito integrado. La integracion del sistema de maxima extraccion de potencia junto con el convertidor DC/DC implementado permiten al sistema alcanzar efciencias de hasta el 81% aun cuando la radiacion solar es baja.en_US
