Our aim of research is to understand and to improve the power supply of energy-harvesting powered systems by means of finding the optimal energy management. In this paper we propose a general energy management structure, present a modular platform concept to realize various configurations of energy management, and characterize management modules and prove the feasibility of the construction kit. The energy management components investigated are dc-dc converters, energy-supervisors, super capacitors and a dummy loads. The results show that all modules work properly and that interconnections has a negligible effect. Our tool offers a new approach to thoroughly investigate energy managements.
