Abstract: Wireless Sensor node is one of the important technologies for the recent world applications like military, agriculture, health etc. But the major problem associated with these nodes is their battery dependence. The Battery Dependence for such nodes responds to the life time of the complete node. Failure of network due to node failure occurs when the battery completely depleted. To beware from such conditions for critical conditions there is one more option of Energy harvesting. In this paper we have discussed about many kinds of energy harvesting procedures. RF energy harvesting and related work discussion are the major issues which we have discussed in this paper. The Power transmitted and received, DC power output, efficiency enhancement due to multipliers or charge pumps are the areas which have been discussed in this paper. Some protocols and routing techniques are also discussed in this paper.
