Samenvatting

The improvement in quality of modern health-care is closely related to the need for medical autonomous systems that enable people to ‘carry’ their personal wireless Body-Area-Network (BAN). Bio-inspired fuel cells (BFC) are a promising approach of energy harvesting to achieve autonomy and miniaturization in implantable BAN. This paper deals with BFC design and modelling. A glucose-based enzymatic BFC system is designed and tested by an in-house developed electrochemical testing set-up. The demonstrator shows the power output can be up to 5μW/cm2. Subsequently, a systematic BFC model has been set-up primarily based on the (electro)chemical reaction kinetics and mass transport of species involved in the complex electricity generation process.
