Abstract:

This paper presents a novel power processor topology to be utilized for deriving power from the microbial fuel cells. The power thus derived will be of sustained for long time with constant voltage and enhanced output power. This topology is concentrated in use of low power consuming Digital Integrated Circuits (IC), which improves the efficiency of system and being compact in nature, these stacked ICs can be used for accommodating multiple numbers of microbial fuel cells. The simulation results of the proposed system are presented to show the validity and sustainability of system.
