Wireless Charging
Wireless power transfer (WPT) is a way of transferring power from one device to another device without any wire or cable connections. Increasing demand for variety of faster and smarter consumer electronics require more and frequent charging of the devices. Each device has its own charging requirements which require multiple adapters and cables to carry and store. Wireless power transfer seems to be the answer to this issue. Even though it has been around for more than 100 years, the technology is gaining momentum to eliminate the “last cable” after Wi-Fi. WPT systems can be divided into different categories based on the medium (air, water), distance (short, medium, long), technology (electromagnetism, laser, solar, wind) and the sector (consumer electronics, electric vehicle, military, industrial applications). Radio frequency (RF) signals radiated by ambient transmitters can be used to transmit power wirelessly. This can be achieved by using radio waves, microwave radiation or by applying resonant coupling or inductive coupling.
