Researchers propose high-efficiency wireless power transfer system
Saint Petersburg, Russia (SPX) Feb 09, 2016
Today, wireless power transfer (WPT) systems enable to charge electronic devices without plugging them into the wall, but rather by placing them on a special charging pad. However, the transfer distance and efficiency of such systems fall short of market expectations. In a new study, a group of scientists from ITMO University and Giricond Research Institute put forward a novel WPT system that can maintain up to 80% transfer efficiency across a distance of 20 centimeters. The results were exp ... read more
