Microwave wireless power transmission: Techniques and some future applications
In this talk, an overview of the effective techniques for wireless power transmission (WPT) currently being utilised will be presented. Short-, medium- and long-range WPT technologies based on inductive coupling and radio-frequency (RF) principles will be outlined. With the recent release of wirelessly rechargeable mobile phones, it is expected that the use of Qi-standard rechargeable platforms in the consumer electronics market will rapidly expand. After describing the historical development of WPT technologies and techniques, Dr Ranjith will focus on some recent advances in microwave wireless power transmission for implantable devices and infrastructure health monitoring (IHM) application
