  3. 3. What is WPT?<br />The transmission of energy from one place to another without using wires<br />Conventional energy transfer is using wires<br />But, the wireless transmission is made possible by using various technologies<br />26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />3<br />
  4. 4. Why not wires? <br />As per studies, most electrical energy transfer is through wires. <br />Most of the energy loss is during transmission<br /><ul><li>On an average, more than 30%
  5. 5. In India, it exceeds 40%</li></ul>26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />4<br />
  6. 6. Why WPT?<br />Reliable<br />Efficient<br />Fast<br />Low maintenance cost<br />Can be used for short-range or long-range.<br />26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />5<br />
  7. 7. History<br />Nikola Tesla in late 1890s<br />Pioneer of induction techniques<br />His vision for “World Wireless System”<br />The 187 feet tall tower to broadcast energy<br />All people can have access to free energy<br />Due to shortage of funds, tower did not operate<br />26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />6<br />
  8. 8. History (contd…)<br />Tesla was able to transfer energy from one coil to another coil<br />He managed to light 200 lamps from a distance of 40km<br />The idea of Tesla is taken in to research after 100 years by a team led by Marin Soljačić from MIT. The project is named as ‘WiTricity’. <br />26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />7<br />
  9. 9. Energy Coupling<br />The transfer of energy<br />Magnetic coupling<br />Inductive coupling<br />Simplest Wireless Energy coupling is a transformer<br />26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />8<br />
  10. 10. Types and Technologies of WPT<br />Near-field techniques<br /><ul><li>Inductive Coupling
  11. 11. Resonant Inductive Coupling
  12. 12. Air Ionization</li></ul>Far-field techniques<br /><ul><li>Microwave Power Transmission (MPT)
  13. 13. LASER power transmission</li></ul>26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />9<br />
  14. 14. Inductive coupling <br />Primary and secondary coils are not connected with wires.<br />Energy transfer is due to Mutual Induction<br />26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />10<br />
  15. 15. Inductive coupling (contd…)<br />Transformer is also an example<br />Energy transfer devices are usually air-cored<br />Wireless Charging Pad(WCP),electric brushes are some examples<br />On a WCP, the devices are to be kept, battery will be automatically charged.<br />26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />11<br />
  16. 16. Inductive coupling(contd…)<br />Electric brush also charges using inductive coupling<br />The charging pad (primary coil) and the device(secondary coil) have to be kept very near to each other<br />It is preferred because it is comfortable.<br />Less use of wires<br />Shock proof<br />26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />12<br />
  17. 17. Resonance Inductive Coupling(RIC)<br />Combination of inductive coupling and resonance<br />Resonance makes two objects interact very strongly<br />Inductance induces current<br />26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />13<br />
  18. 18. How resonance in RIC?<br />Coil provides the inductance<br />Capacitor is connected parallel to the coil<br />Energy will be shifting back and forth between magnetic field surrounding the coil and electric field around the capacitor<br />Radiation loss will be negligible<br />26-Aug-10<br />Wireless Power Transmission<br />14<br />

  25. 25. RIC vs. inductive coupling<br />RIC is highly efficient<br />RIC has much greater range than inductive coupling<br />RIC is directional when compared to inductive coupling<br />RIC can be one-to-many.
