Wireless Power

  1. Nov 2, 2005 #1
    My question is how to generate wireless power i.e. cordless power to power up electronic/electrical equipments. Any link to research that has done on it & other startup links. How can you help me learn about it as early as possible.

    Batteries.

    Or do you mean transmitted wireless power?

    There are a number of ways to do it, but there isn't anything that is really feasible. What exactly is the purpose of this?

    I mean, as an example to power up the television set without using power cord connected to 220V/110V ac wall socket.

    It is a research oriented project and we will hopefully get funding for that.

    All that I can think of that would be applicable on that scale would be the aforementioned batteries, built-in generators, or inductive pickups. The SPS beamed-power proposals use microwaves, but you don't want to be messing about with that stuff in your living room.

    Well, there are radio sets which don't have any batteries. The strength of the radio wave is sufficient for (faint) music/whatever.


    Other than this, why don't we use about 100 million volts.... that should be able to travel about ten meters....... heh

    As I mentioned before my research will be wireless based i.e. on electromagnetic waves.

    ElectroPhysics - what type of power level and distance between transmitter/receiver are you talking about?

    Well, it looks like about 200w and about 5m...

    The transmitter should able to provide sufficient energy to power up all the equipments e.g. present in a house and should cover the range of this house.

    The equipments are not fixed in a place and as stated earlier we have to find its electromagnetism based solution.

    Omnidirectional power transmittance requires an enormous amount of power, since the vast majority doesn't go to what you are powering, but, rather, is absorbed by other objects, the air, etc.

    You could simply turn the entire house into a walk-in microwave oven. That would work. Any person trying to watch TV in that house would cook and smolder, though.

    I will appreciate if some body send me a link to MS or PhD thesis regarding this topic.

    Sorry, I don't think you're going to find what you are looking for. It just isn't a feasible idea.

    I agree with you only by feasibility point of view. Many things were not possible in the past that exist today. My research can provide some clues or hints to achieve it for future generations. Today we live the life that our ancestors has just imagined and struggled for. I will do this research for the benefits of next generations.

    I think it will be the main research area in near future
