IEEE Waves Chapter Seminar

June 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC-6

IEEE Winnipeg Waves Chapter (APS/MTTS/VTS) is pleased to present the following seminar

=================================================================

Seminar Title: Current Research and Development of Wireless Power Transfer via Radio Waves and the Application

 =================================================================

Speaker: Prof. Naoki Shinohara

Distinguihsed Microwave Lecturer-IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society

Professor, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan

=================================================================

Date: Friday, June 8th, 2018 at 11am

=================================================================

Location:  EITC E1-270 (Fort Garry Campus; Engineering Building)

=================================================================

Abstract of the Presentation: Theory, technologies, applications, and current R&D status of the wireless power transfer (WPT) will be presented. The talk will cover both the far-field WPT via radio waves, especially beam-type and ubiquitous-type WPT, and energy harvesting from broadcasting waves. The research of the WPT was started from the far-field WPT via radio waves, in particular the microwaves in 1960s. In recent years this became a hot topic again due to the rapid growth of wireless devices. Theory and technologies of antenna and circuits will be presented in case of beam-type and ubiquitous-type WPT. The industrial applications and current R&D status of the WPT via radio waves will be also presented.
