Introduction to Wireless Power Transfer Theory Technology and Applications

Nikola Tesla dreamed of a ‘‘wirelessly powered world’’ at the end of the nineteenth century (Figure 1.1). He sometimes tried to transmit power wirelessly, believing that he could send it anywhere on Earth using resonance phenomena [1].

Unfortunately, his dream has failed to materialize. Nevertheless, he is considered a pioneer of wireless power transfer (WPT).

At around the same time, in 1894, M. Hutin and M. LeBlanc proposed an apparatus and a method for powering an electrical vehicle (EV) inductively using an alternating current (AC) generator of approximately 3-kHz frequency (Figure 1.2) [2].

EVs were developed shortly after the steam engine, approximately 100 years ago. However, with the development of the internal combustion engine, the EV fell out of favor. As a result, after

Hutin and LeBlanc, the EV inductive-coupling WPT charger was forgotten the same way Tesla’s dream of WPT was forgotten after him.

There were unremitting efforts to carry the electricity wirelessly after Tesla’s dream. In Japan in 1926, an interesting WPT experiment was carried out by H. Yagi and S. Uda, the inventors of the Yagi–Uda antenna.

They placed non-feed parasitic elements between a transmitting antenna and a receiving antenna with a frequency of 68 MHz to transmit wireless power (Figure 1.3) [3]. This device was named ‘‘wave canal,’’ and it was similar to the Yagi–Uda antenna.

It was a WPT experiment via radio waves. But it can be considered as a coupling WPT because the wireless power was transmitted through coupling antennas/directors as resonators.

They successfully received approximately 200 mW by transmitting 2–3 W of electric power. In the same period in the United States, H. V. Noble demonstrated the WPT via a 100-MHz radio wave at the Chicago World Fair III in 1933 (Figure 1.4).

The distance between a transmitting antenna and a receiving antenna was 5–12 m and the transmitted wireless power was approximately 15 kW. The dream of the wireless power was taken over after the Second World War by, for example, W. C. Brown in the United States with microwaves in the 1960s [4],

D. Otto in New Zealand with inductive very low frequency (VLF) in the 1970s [5], and a lot of researchers. Figure 1.5 indicates the first WPT-aided flying drone experiment via microwave by W. C. Brown in the 1960s.

But except some commercial inductive wireless charger for a wireless telephone, an electric toothbrush, and a shaver, the WPT technology became a lost technology.

In an integrated circuit (IC) card, the inductive WPT at 13.58 MHz is adopted. But it is considered a near-field communication system, not a WPT.

We had to wait for the twenty-first century when a dream of the WPT arose again. A century after Tesla, Hutin, and LeBlanc, we now have the same dream of WPT. Over the last hundred years, many studies, developments, and commercial products have been based on WPT technology as described before.

Its operational principles can be divided into ‘‘electromagnetic coupling WPT’’ and ‘‘uncoupled WPT’’ or ‘‘radiative WPT.’’ The electromagnetic coupling WPT is called near-field WPT and uses high-frequency magnetic or electric fields.

It is also called an inductive-coupling WPT when the high-frequency magnetic field is used. Inductive-coupling WPT is explained by Ampere’s law and Faraday’s law. Radiative WPT is called as far-field WPT, and it is a WPT that happens via radio waves.

The WPT via radio waves is explained by Maxwell’s equations. Recently, resonance-coupling WPT has been developed as a revised inductive coupling WPT. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology research group proposed a resonance-coupling WPT system in 2007 [6].

The resonance coupling WPT is based on the inductive-coupling WPT. With the help of resonance phenomena, the distance between the transmitter and receiver can be increased more than in conventional inductive-coupling WPT.

Figure 1.6 indicates the relationship between Ampere’s law, Faraday’s law, Maxwell’s equations, the inductive-coupling WPT, the resonance-coupling WPT, and WPT via radio waves.

This book introduces the theory, techniques, and applications of WPT. After the introduction, the theory of coupling WPT is described.

Then, we discuss circuit technologies for the coupling WPT. Next, the theory and techniques of WPT via radio waves are explained, and numerous practical WPT applications are introduced.

Finally, important issues in WPT, including safety problems, are discussed. After reading this book, you will also share the dream of WPT.
