There is a big challenge for research and industrial engineers to apply energy harvesting powered wireless sensors for practical applications. This is because wireless sensors is very power hungry while current energy harvesting systems can only harvest very limited energy from the ambient environment. In order for wireless sensors to be operated based on the limited energy harvested, understanding of power consumption of wireless sensors energy is the first task for implementation of energy harvesting powered wireless sensors systems. In this research the power consumption in the life cycle of wireless communication sensors, consisting of JN5148 microcontroller and custom built sensors: a 3-axial accelerometer, a temperature sensor and a light sensor, has been studied. All measurements are based on a custom built test bed. The power required to carry out a life cycle of wireless sensing and transmission is analysed. This paper describes how to analyse the current consumption of the system in active mode and thus power Consumption for sleeping and deployed sensors mode. The results show how much energy needs to run the energy harvesting powered wireless sensor node with JN5148 microcontroller.
