What is WitriCity?
Witricity is nothing but wireless electricity.
Transmission of electrical energy from one object
to another without the use of wires is called
Because of Witricity some of the devices won’t
require batteries to operate .
History of Wireless Power:
In 1899, Sir Nikola Tesla Proposed a method
of Wireless Power Transmission.
As it is in Radiative mode, most of the
Power was wasted and has less efficiency.
Able to light lamps over 25 miles away
without using wires
The team from Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, who call
their invention ‘WiTricity‘.
In the first successful trial of its
kind, the team was able to
illuminate a 60-watt light bulb 7ft
•Electricity is a general term
that encompasses a variety of
phenomena resulting from the
presence and flow of electric
•Magnetism is a force that acts
at a distance due to a magnetic
field. This field is caused by
moving electrically charged
particles or is inherent in
magnetic objects such as
•Electromagnetic induction is the
production of voltage across a
conductor moving through a
•Electromagnetism is one of the
four fundamental interactions of
nature, along with strong
interaction, weak interaction and
gravitation. It is the force that
causes the interaction between
electrically charged particles; the
areas in which this happens are
called electromagnetic fields
•Energy/Power Coupling: Energy
coupling occurs when an energy
source has a means of transferring
energy to another object
•Resonance :is the tendency of a
system to oscillate with larger
amplitude at some frequencies than
at others. These are known as the
system's resonant frequencies (or
resonance frequencies). At these
frequencies, even small periodic
driving forces can produce large
•Resonant Magnetic Coupling:
Magnetic coupling occurs when two
objects exchange energy through their
varying or oscillating magnetic fields.
Resonant coupling occurs when the
natural frequencies of the two objects
are approximately the same.
4) Electricity picked up by laptop's antenna, which must also be
resonating at 10MHz. Energy used to re-charge device.
5)Energy not transferred to laptop re-absorbed by source antenna.
People/other objects not affected as not resonating at 10MHz. 12
How WitriCity works ?
1) Power from mains to antenna, which is made of copper
2) Antenna resonates at a frequency of 10MHz, emitting
3) 'Tails' of energy from antenna 'tunnel' up to 2.5m (8.2ft)
WiTricity’s technology is a non-
radiative mode of energy transfer,
relying instead on the magnetic
near field. Magnetic fields interact
very weakly with biological
organisms—people and animals—
and are scientifically regarded to
be safe. WiTricity products are
being designed to comply with
applicable safety standards and

Witricity Applications :-
No need of line of
No need of power
Does not interfere
with radio waves.
Wastage of power is small .
Negative health implications.
Highly efficient than
Wireless power transmission can be possible
only in few metres.
Efficiency is only about 40%
