Approach to Wireless Power Transmission

Yashasvi Shah, AM Kothari


In this Paper, we first explained the involution of the wireless power transmission that is how the wireless transmission came into existence its various methods advantages disadvantages are also discussed. We are dealing with the concept of transmitting power without using wires. The various technologies available so far for wireless transmission of electricity and the need for a wireless system of energy transmission is being discussed here to find its possibility in actual practices, their advantages, disadvantages and economical consideration. Many concepts, research papers, patents are available on wireless transmission of electricity but the commercial technologies are yet to be materialized. The paper summarizes the possible ways to get useful and practical results out of all research carried out so far elsewhere.

Keywords: Wireless power transmission, Nikola Tesla, solar power satellites
