ing capacitive coupling between electrodes.[5][8] Applications of this type are electric toothbrush chargers, RFID
tags, smartcards, and chargers for implantable medical
devices like artificial cardiac pacemakers, and inductive
powering or charging of electric vehicles like trains or
buses.[9][11] A current focus is to develop wireless systems to charge mobile and handheld computing devices
such as cellphones, digital music player and portable computers without being tethered to a wall plug. In radiative
or far-field techniques, also called power beaming, power
is transmitted by beams of electromagnetic radiation, like
microwaves or laser beams. These techniques can transport energy longer distances but must be aimed at the
receiver. Proposed applications for this type are solar
power satellites, and wireless powered drone aircraft.[9]
An important issue associated with all wireless power systems is limiting the exposure of people and other living
things to potentially injurious electromagnetic fields (see
Electromagnetic radiation and health).[9]

Wireless power transfer (WPT) or wireless energy
transmission is the transmission of electrical power from
a power source to a consuming device without using
solid wires or conductors.[2][3][4][5] It is a generic term
that refers to a number of different power transmission technologies that use time-varying electromagnetic
fields.[1][5][6][7] Wireless transmission is useful to power
electrical devices in cases where interconnecting wires
are inconvenient, hazardous, or are not possible. In wireless power transfer, a transmitter device connected to
a power source, such as the mains power line, transmits power by electromagnetic fields across an intervening space to one or more receiver devices, where it is converted back to electric power and utilized.[1]

“Wireless power transmission” is a collective term that
refers to a number of different technologies for transmitting power by means of time-varying electromagnetic
fields.[1][5][8] The technologies, listed in the table below,
differ in the distance over which they can transmit power
efficiently, whether the transmitter must be aimed (directed) at the receiver, and in the type of electromagnetic
energy they use: time varying electric fields, magnetic
fields, radio waves, microwaves, or infrared or visible
light waves.[8]
In general a wireless power system consists of a “transmitter” device connected to a source of power such as mains
power lines, which converts the power to a time-varying
electromagnetic field, and one or more “receiver” devices
which receive the power and convert it back to DC or
AC electric power which is consumed by an electrical

Wireless power techniques fall into two categories, nonradiative and radiative.[1][6][8][9][10] In near-field or nonradiative techniques, power is transferred over short distances by magnetic fields using inductive coupling between coils of wire or in a few devices by electric fields us1

Therefore these techniques cannot be used be received intelligibly.[1][8] In the transmitter the input power is converted technologies are used for transmitting power: to an oscillating electromagnetic field by some type of "antenna" device.[18] If there is no receiving device or absorbing material within their limited range Wireless power uses much of the same fields and waves [6][12] to “couple” to. • Far-field or radiative region .up to about one antenna diameter: Dᵣₐ ₑ ≤ Dₐ .

These fields contain energy.[10] meaning it leaves the antenna whether or not there is a receiver to absorb it. Therefore the These are the different wireless power range of near-field devices is conventionally [1][8][9][13][14] technologies: devided into two categories: 2 Field regions Electric and magnetic fields are created by charged particles in matter such as electrons.

By contrast.[1][4][6][9][20][21] although the fields wireless communication technologies.

By using a high-gain antenna or optical system which concentrates the radiation into a narrow beam aimed at the receiver. corresponding to frequencies above 1 GHz. with the secondary in close proximity to the primary.[36] Resonance is used in both the wireless charging pad (the transmitter circuit) and the receiver module (embedded in the load) to maximize energy transfer efficiency. to produce the narrow beams necessary to focus a significant amount of the energy on a distant receiver. Battery-powered devices fitted with a special receiver module can then be charged simply by placing them on a wireless charging pad. are examples of how this principle is used. At low frequencies f where the antenna is much smaller than the size of the waves.1 3 B Vs Power Oscillator L1 Source L2 Rectifier Load Generic block diagram of an inductive wireless power system.[20][25] From the Rayleigh criterion. very little power is radiated. it can be used for long range power transmission. As the distance from the primary is increased. more and more of the primary’s magnetic field misses the secondary.[26][27] Practical beam power devices require wavelengths in the centimeter region or below.[10][20] Therefore these can be used for short range. This technology is also used for powering devices with very low energy requirements. Principal functions are stepping the primary voltage either up or down and electrical isolation. electromagnetic radiation can be focused by reflection or refraction into beams. The primary coil and secondary coil of a transformer are not directly connected. only a small amount of the radiation will hit it.[17] Since power is proportional to the square of the field strength.

Instead of relying on each of the many thousands or millions of RFID patches or smartcards to contain a working battery. wasting much of the transmitted energy. Even over a relatively short range the inductive coupling is grossly inefficient.2 Capacitive coupling coupling The electrodynamic induction wireless transmission Main article: Capacitive coupling technique relies on the use of a magnetic field generated . Inductive coupling Main articles: Inductive coupling and Resonant inductive 3.[6][19][28][29] or 60 dB per decade. This effect occurs in the electromagnetic near field. The main drawback to this basic form of wireless transmission is short range. 3.[30] This action of an electrical transformer is the simplest form of wireless power transmission. Common uses of resonance-enhanced electrodynamic induction[31] are charging the batteries of portable devices such as laptop computers and cell phones. the power transferred decreases with the sixth power of the distance (Dᵣₐ ₑ/Dₐ )−6 . by an electric current to induce a current in a second conductor. Energy transfer takes place through a process known as mutual induction. unlike fields. It has been adopted as part of the Qi wireless charging standard. an antenna must be much larger than the wavelength of the waves used: Dₐ >> λ = c/f. inefficient power transmission but not for long range transmission. Antennas about the same size as the wavelength Dₐ ≈ λ such as monopole or dipole antennas. Induction cookers use this method.[1] 3 Near-field or non-radiative techniques Main article: Coupling (electronics) The near-field components of electric and magnetic fields die out quickly beyond a distance of about one diameter of the antenna (Dₐ ). doubling the distance between transmitter and receiver causes the power received to decrease by a factor of 26 = 64. The receiver must be directly adjacent to the transmitter or induction unit in order to efficiently couple with it. but the electromagnetic waves are radiated in all directions (omnidirectionally).[32][33][34] A localized charging technique[35] selects the appropriate transmitting coil in a multilayer winding array structure. In other words. so if the receiving antenna is far away. Therefore the near-field devices above. electrodynamic induction can provide power only when the devices are needed. each coil is part of a separate circuit. which use lower frequencies. Dₐ << λ. in the microwave range or above. radiate almost none of their energy as electromagnetic radiation.3. such as RFID patches and contactless smartcards. radiate power efficiently.[25] However.2 Capacitive coupling λ = c/f. Outside very close ranges the field strength and coupling is roughly proportional to (Dᵣₐ ₑ/Dₐ )−3 . medical implants and electric vehicles.

[13] The receiver armature produces power to drive the load. used in standard radio frequency antenna design. Ultimately. in contrast to magnetic fields.[5] which causes an alternating current to flow in the load circuit. coupled together by a magnetic field generated by permanent magnets on the armatures. Then the power levels are calculated by combining the . the larger the transmitter antenna or laser aperture compared to the wavelength of radiation. the wavelength and the Rayleigh criterion or diffraction limit. so. however. The maximum directivity for antennas is physically limited by diffraction. 3.[5][6][37] Capacitive coupling has recently been applied to charging battery powered portable devices[39] and is being considered as a means of transferring power between substrate layers in integrated circuits. for example. often multiple kilometer ranges. which rotate synchronously. Smaller antennae also suffer from excessive losses due to side lobes. the dual of inductive coupling. reducing interference. visible light (from lasers) and microwaves (from purpose-designed antennas) are the forms of electromagnetic radiation best suited to energy transfer. A prototype system charging electric vehicles has been in operation at University of British Columbia since 2012. alignment requirements between the transmitter and receiver are less critical.3 Magnetodynamic coupling In this method. The field is largely confined between the capacitor plates. Other researchers.[40] Far field methods achieve longer ranges. which in inductive coupling requires heavy ferrite “flux confinement” cores. one in the transmitter and one in the receiver.[13] The transmitter armature is turned either by or as the rotor of an electric motor.[13] It is claimed that this technique can transfer power over distances of 10 to 15 cm (4 to 6 inches) with high efficiency. and its magnetic field exerts torque on the receiver armature.[6] However capacitive coupling has a few advantages over inductive. Electromagnetic radiation experiences less diffraction at shorter wavelengths (higher frequencies). the tighter the beam and the less it will spread as a function of distance (and vice versa). and is less prone to atmospheric attenuation caused by dust or water vapor. Airy’s diffraction limit is also frequently used to determine an approximate spot size at an arbitrary distance from the aperture. in the case of humans possibly causing excessive electromagnetic field exposure. which also applies to lasers. a laser aperture much larger than the wavelength induces multi-moded radiation and mostly collimators are used before emitted radiation couples into a fiber or into space. The magnetic field acts like a mechanical coupling between the armatures. However. power is transmitted by electric fields[5] between electrodes such as metal plates.[13] Capacitive coupling has only been used practically in a few low power applications. Typically.[5] by the rotating magnets produce less electromagnetic interference to nearby electronic devices than the high frequency magnetic fields produced by inductive coupling systems.4 4 FAR-FIELD OR RADIATIVE TECHNIQUES In capacitive coupling (electrostatic induction). which is proportional to the area of the smaller plate and (for short distances) inversely proportional to the separation. a blue laser is diffracted less than a red one. and the oscillating electric field induces an alternating potential on the receiver plate by electrostatic induction. including the human body. microwave or laser beam will spread and become weaker and diffuse over distance. The Rayleigh criterion dictates that any radio wave.[5][6][9][37][38] An alternating voltage generated by the transmitter is applied to the transmitting plate. This device has been proposed as an alternative to inductive power transfer for noncontact charging of electric vehicles. In addition. over 90%. The dimensions of the components may be dictated by the distance from transmitter to receiver. because the very high voltages on the electrodes required to transmit significant power can be hazardous. claim that the two energy conversions (electrical to mechanical to electrical again) make the system less efficient than electrical systems like inductive coupling. beamwidth is physically determined by diffraction due to the dish size in relation to the wavelength of the electromagnetic radiation used to make the beam.[6][9] and can cause unpleasant side effects such as noxious ozone production.[13] A rotating armature embedded in a garage floor or curb would turn a receiver armature in the underside of the vehicle to charge its batteries. with the intervening space as the dielectric. either by turning an electric generator or by using the receiver armature as the rotor in an induction generator . where the distance is much greater than the diameter of the device(s). power is transmitted between two rotating armatures. due to dielectric polarization.[20] electric fields interact strongly with most materials. Microwave power beaming can be more efficient than lasers. The main reason for longer ranges with radio wave and optical devices is the fact that electromagnetic radiation in the far-field can be made to match the shape of the receiving area (using high directivity antennas or well-collimated laser beams).[38] Intervening materials between or near the electrodes can absorb the energy.[13] Also. The amount of power transferred increases with the frequency[37] and the capacitance between the plates. turning it.[5][38] Also. the low frequency stray magnetic fields produced 4 Far-field or radiative techniques In general. the concept of laser aperture considerably differs from an antenna. The transmitter and receiver electrodes form a capacitor.

the idea of using microwaves to transmit power was researched. In February 1926.[45] Japanese researcher Hidetsugu Yagi also investigated wireless energy transmission using a directional array an4.[50] These methods achieve distances on the order of a kilometer.1 Microwaves tenna that he designed. although short wavelengths may have difficulties with atmospheric absorption and beam blockage by rain or water droplets.

For example.2 Lasers crowaves has been proposed for the transmission of energy from orbiting solar power satellites to Earth and the beaming of power to spacecraft leaving orbit has been considered.4. 5 Following World War II. For earthbound applications a large area 10 km diameter receiving array allows large total power levels to be used while operating at the low power density suggested for human electromagnetic exposure safety. the 1978 NASA Study of solar power satellites required a 1-km diameter transmitting antenna.[42][43] Power beaming by microwaves has the difficulty that for most space applications the required aperture sizes are very large due to diffraction limiting antenna directionality. In the case of electromagnetic radiation closer to the visible region of the spectrum (tens of micrometers to tens of nanometres).2 Lasers above parameters together. This is the power level found in many modern electric power plants. allowing longer distance power beaming. and a 10 km diameter receiving rectenna. this beam antenna has been widely adopted throughout the broadcasting and wireless telecommunications industries due to its excellent performance characteristics. power can be transmitted by converting . a miniature helicopter propelled by microwave power had been demonstrated. for a microwave beam at 2. A human safe power density of 1 mW/cm2 distributed across a 10 km diameter area corresponds to 750 megawatts total power level.” it is not possible to make a narrower beam by combining the beams of several smaller satellites. Under experimental conditions microwave conversion efficiency was measured to be around 54%. With a laser beam centered on its panel of photovoltaic cells. and adding in the gains and losses due to the antenna characteristics and the transparency and dispersion of the medium through which the radiation passes. That process is known as calculating a link budget. Rectenna conversion efficiencies exceeding 95% have been realized.[51] More recently a change to 24 GHz has been suggested as microwave emitters similar to LEDs have been made with directional. While it did not prove to be particularly useful for power transmission. By 1964.[41] A rectenna may for short range links. Because of the "thinned array curse.4. be used to convert the microwave energy back into electricity.[44] These sizes can be somewhat decreased by using shorter wavelengths.[46] Wireless high power transmission using microwaves is well proven. Experiments in the tens of kilowatts have been performed at Goldstone in California in 1975[47][48][49] and more recently (1997) at Grand Bassin on Reunion Island.e.
