In energy harvesting wireless sensor network (EH-WSN), many energy harvesting technologies are developed to sustain the long-term operation of wireless sensor network. However, the prediction of harvested energy plays an important role for energy management. In this paper, we focus on energy prediction for EH-WSN. We first analyze the factors of affecting energy harvesting and the characteristic of the solar array. Then, the kernel partial least squares (KPLS) is proposed as the energy prediction model. According to the difference of energy intake for the days, months, season and year, the four energy prediction models are established. By extensive experimental analysis for real solar data in different areas, the proposed prediction model improves prediction accuracy than existing energy prediction algorithms in EH-WSN.
