Short summary
Digitalization is gaining momentum. Therefore sensory functions have to be integrated into rotating systems and harsh environments, requiring a reliable energy supply. To support product designers an estimation model for an autonomous sensor node is derived from basic electrical relations and simplified to make it usable for designers. Subsequently the model is used to define operation strategies influencing the energy consumption, which are tested in different ambient conditions.
