Solar cells are the most common energy scavengers due to their ease of use, reliability and wide range of applications wherever the light is present. One of such applications is a wireless autonomous sensor network, where each sensor node tends to be as small as possible. In this paper, we describe a way to optimize the optical energy harvesting process using as an example a power management IC BQ25570. We introduce an approach to calculate the minimal solar cell area and storage capacitance, which are necessary to supply the module in the active mode for a specified time period and to minimize the charging time.
