The emergence of energy-scavenging techniques for powering networks of embedded devices is raising the need for dedicated simulation frameworks that can support researchers and developers in the design and performance evaluation of harvesting-aware protocols and algorithms. In this work we present GreenCastalia, an open-source energy-harvesting simulation framework we have developed for the popular Castalia simulator. GreenCastalia supports multi-source and multi-storage energy harvesting architectures, it is highly modular and easily customizable. In addition, it allows to simulate networks of embedded devices with heterogeneous harvesting capabilities.
