Wireless Power Transmission Technologies

Wireless power transfer (WPT) constitutes a method for the remote delivery of energy and the generation of electricity through the transmission and reception of electromagnetic waves by means of dedicated antenna systems. In this framework, the activities of the ELEDIA Research Center focus on the study of the fundamental theory of WPT and on the development of methodologies and techniques for the synthesis and design of the WPT transmitting and receiving antenna systems, with application in

  • Wireless power transmission
  • Space-based solar power
  • Short- and long-range WPT antennas
  • Wireless energy focusing
  • Rectennas
  • Wireless charging
  • Energy harvesting
