Wireless Power Transfer and Microwave Energy Harvesting

Although wireless energy transfer is an old idea (Tesla patented one design in 1901), technological advances and the rise of portable devices have made it relevant again for different applications, such as wireless charging and energy harvesting.

This webinar consists of two parts. The first part is a review of low frequency power transfer in two categories: short range-inductive charging and powering of electronic devices and electric vehicles, and mid-range power transfer through coupled resonant circuits. The second part of the webinar is concerned with wireless energy transfer over longer distances, where the far-field transfer of RF energy may be used.
