Wireless Power Transmission

The first lecture of the Budapest University of technology and Economics Jt. IAS/PES Student Branch Chapter in the 2016/2017 spring semester was about wireless power transmission, and the attendees could listen to a presentation about its history, current problems and the possible future solutions. The lecturer was Dr. Szabolcs Gyimóthy, a professor of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, who is a well-known researcher in this field. He reviewed the past of the wireless power transmission and presented two transmission methods. The first called near field, where the effective range of the transmitter and the receiver is few centimeters. The other one is the far field transmission, which has bigger distance between the antennas.
