Autonomous sensor systems are well known in different industrial applications. In many fields of chemical and pharmaceutical industries as well as in mechanical engineering you can already find first implemented systems. Further fields of application for these kind of micro energy systems can be found in the fast growing field of autonomous sensor systems for the Internet of Things, for example for manufacturing engineering, building automation or medical applications. In this case, high demands are made on robustness (extended operating temperatures) and long life (cycle times of several years). It can be seen, that batteries, as energy storages currently most widely used, often do not fulfill the environmental requirements. Often is not only a compact design (high energy density), but at the same time a high cycle stability required. Fraunhofer IKTS has comprehensive experience in ceramic multilayer technology and does for several years research in the field of LTCC technology (Low Temperature Cofired Ceramics - LTCC) as an integration platform for μ-fuel cells in the low temperature range (PEMFC). The work presented here gives an insight into the development of hydrogen fuel cell based power systems with high energy density, high cycle resistance and low energy losses even under harsh environments.
