Wireless Power Transmission : Wireless Power Transmission Presented by Rakesh K.K. 4NM07EC080 Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering NMAM Institute of Technology, Nitte Overview : Overview What is wireless power transmission(WPT)? Why is WPT? History of WPT Types of WPT Techniques to transfer energy wirelessly Advantages and disadvantages Applications Conclusion References 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 2 What is WPT? : What is WPT? The transmission of energy from one place to another without using wires Conventional energy transfer is using wires But, the wireless transmission is made possible by using various technologies 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 3 Why not wires? : Why not wires? As per studies, most electrical energy transfer is through wires. Most of the energy loss is during transmission On an average, more than 30% In India, it exceeds 40% 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 4 Why WPT? : Why WPT? Reliable Efficient Fast Low maintenance cost Can be used for short-range or long-range. 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 5 History : History Nikola Tesla in late 1890s Pioneer of induction techniques His vision for “World Wireless System” The 187 feet tall tower to broadcast energy All people can have access to free energy Due to shortage of funds, tower did not operate 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 6 History (contd…) : History (contd…) Tesla was able to transfer energy from one coil to another coil He managed to light 200 lamps from a distance of 40km 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’. 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 7 Energy Coupling : Energy Coupling The transfer of energy Magnetic coupling Inductive coupling Simplest Wireless Energy coupling is a transformer 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 8 Types and Technologies of WPT : Types and Technologies of WPT Near-field techniques Inductive Coupling Resonant Inductive Coupling Air Ionization Far-field techniques Microwave Power Transmission (MPT) LASER power transmission 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 9 Inductive coupling : Inductive coupling Primary and secondary coils are not connected with wires. Energy transfer is due to Mutual Induction 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 10 Inductive coupling (contd…) : Inductive coupling (contd…) Transformer is also an example Energy transfer devices are usually air-cored Wireless Charging Pad(WCP),electric brushes are some examples On a WCP, the devices are to be kept, battery will be automatically charged. 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 11 Inductive coupling(contd…) : Inductive coupling(contd…) Electric brush also charges using inductive coupling The charging pad (primary coil) and the device(secondary coil) have to be kept very near to each other It is preferred because it is comfortable. Less use of wires Shock proof 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 12 Resonance Inductive Coupling(RIC) : Resonance Inductive Coupling(RIC) Combination of inductive coupling and resonance Resonance makes two objects interact very strongly Inductance induces current 8/31/2010 Wireless Power Transmission 13 How resonance in RIC? : How resonance in RIC?
