Wireless power transmission (WPT) or wireless power transfer refers to the transfer of energy or power from one place to another without being connecting through wires. In this, electromagnetic energy is transferred from power sources to electric loads.
Wired transmission is the most commonmode of transmitting electrical energy. Its main drawback, the loss of energy during transmission, drives the demand for wireless power transmission. Being fast and consistent, WPT can be used both for short and long range transmissions. A major advantage of WPT is low maintenance cost. However, there is a high initial cost i.e. capital cost involved in implementing the WPT. Another disadvantage is interference of microwaves with current communication systems. WPT is generally used for transfer of energy to remote areas. Major application of WPT is in consumer electronics goods such aslaptops, tablets and smartphones. The largest application of WPT is in solar-power satellites. WPT is also used in fuel-free aircrafts, fuel-free electric automobiles, robots and fuel-free rockets.
