Electric Power Through the Air
The dramatic increase in the number of devices in today’s intelligent networks and the influence of the Internet of Things raise the question of how all of the devices will be powered. In many applications, the number and disperse locations of these devices rule out wiring all of them to a power supply. Using batteries for each device may create difficult maintenance challenges while also raising environmental issues regarding battery disposal. The ideal solution involves a wireless transfer system to power to these devices, but existing systems are not always up to this challenge. Murata Manufacturing used Ansys simulation to test a wireless power transfer method called a direct-current-resonance power transfer system so that it can be commercialized.
