Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) is an emerging technology in today’s society. Recently, many advancements to WPT systems have been implemented, such as, the introduction of the Strongly Coupled Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) and Conformal SCMR (CSCMR) methods. These methods allow WPT systems to operate at increased distances with smaller dimensional footprints. However, their range is still limited and needs to be expanded, and their footprint is sometimes large and needs to be miniaturized. Therefore, the goal of this research is to develop new designs and methodologies that can achieve the range extension and miniaturization of CSCMR systems.
Furthermore, many wireless devices are used today in the proximity of the human body (e.g., wearable and implantable applications). Therefore, WPT systems should be safe to use when placed on or inside the human body. To address this need, the secondary goal of this research is to study the effects of WPT systems when placed on or inside the human body.
