Abstract

Wireless power transfer (WPT) is one of the most frequently discussed topics. Due to its straightforward implementations and designs, it is also one of the most commercialized. It is a technology that allows power to be transferred from one electrical transmitter to another electrical transmitter across an air gap. Inductive coupling, magnetic resonance coupling, and radio-frequency transfer are the three widely used wireless power transfer technologies, and this study provides a thorough summary of their respective histories. Latest implementations are also introduced. Current implementation of the technology in vogue are confronted with some challenges, which may be seen as future research trends, in hope of miniaturizing gadget complexity, enhancing device transmission duration and reducing costs.

Keywords

Wireless power transfer (WPT), Inductive coupling, Resonance coupling, Wireless charging, RF power harvesting, Qi standards.
