This thesis is about the suitability of several energy storage devices for supplying a self sufficient sensor node powered by energy harvesting, taking into account determinant detrimental factors which affects the performance of these storages devices as time goes by. In addition, this document covers the design of the whole energy harvesting system, including the management of the harvested energy and the study, construction and measurements of a circuit which has the same functionality as a solar cell and that can be adjusted according to a specific chosen solar cell.
