Introduction to Witricity (Wireless power transfer)

  1. 1. Wireless Transmission of Power Presented by :Asim Sagheer Anum Khan Sumaira Sagheer WiTricity
  2. 2. Contents What is WiTricity Background Working Principle Is it secure ??? Applications Limitations
  3. 3. What is WiTricity?  Stands for ‘wireless electricity’  Eliminates the use of cables for transmission of power  Transmission by induction through resonators.  Security
  4. 4. (1/2) Background  In 1899, Sir Nikola Tesla enlighten 200 lamps at the distance of 40 km.  But only 15% efficiency was achieved.
  5. 5. (2/2)  MIT powered 60 watt light bulb from 2 meters (7 ft) at 40% efficiency  First practical example of WiTricity.
  6. 6. (1/1) Working Principle  One Simple Physics Rule !  At Source : Electricity Magnetic Wave  At Device : Magnetic Wave Electricity  Resonant coupling
  7. 7. (1/1) Is it secure ???  Works on the principle of magnetic induction.  Interact weakly with surrounding objects (biological tissue)
  8. 8. (1/5) Applications  Automatic electronics wireless charging of mobile
  9. 9. (2/5)  Direct wireless powering of stationary devices Sony demonstrated its wirelessly powered television [2010 October] Demonstration of WiTricity on cell phone and LCD at the TED conference
  10. 10. (3/5)  Direct wireless powering of PC peripherals
  11. 11. (4/5)  Automatic wireless charging for electric vehicles
  12. 12. (5/5) One source is able to transfer the energy for the electronic devices.
  13. 13. Limitations  It is a midrange technology. (max 7.5 m)  The maximum efficiency obtained in full ideal conditions is 95% .  Only obstructions are metal structures like metal doors and metal walls.
