This book covers the next generation of power transfer in which power is transmitted via energy harvesting applications. It describes far-field Wireless Power Transfers (WPT) and why they are considered a special type of power transfer where power is transmitted through wireless power sources like radio waves, Wi-Fi, and TV broadcasting signals rather than utilizing near-field wireless power sources. The book is the first of its kind to explain far-field WPT and energy harvesting technology from the same viewpoint. It helps you understand the theory of far-field WPT, and you will learn about the rising market for power transfer, factory automation (FA) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensors. With its comprehensive and unique coverage combining WPT and energy harvesting technology, this is an excellent resource for researchers, graduate students and engineers looking to further their knowledge on the theory of far-field wireless power transfer.
General Introduction, Brief History of WPT/Harvesting, General Technical Introduction of WPT/Harvesting, Current Status of Commercialization/Regulation/Research of WPT/Harvesting Far-Field WPT, Backscattering IoT Devices, In-room WPT for Vital Sensors, Medical Applications, Textile-supported WPT, Indoor/Outdoor Beam WPT with Beam Forming, Solar Power Satellite Energy Harvesting, UWB Indoor Localisation for WPT, Low-power IC design for Energy Harvesting, Energy Harvesting for Smart Grid Applications, Energy Harvesting for IoT Applications, Energy Harvesting from Low Power Density Environment, Metamaterials and Metasurfaces for Energy Harvesting

  • Jiafeng Zhou

    received a BSc degree in Radio Physics from Nanjing University, Nanjing, China and a Ph.D degree from University of Birmingham, Birmingham, U.K. His doctoral research concerned high-temperature superconductor microwave filters. He was with the National Satellite Meteorological Centre of China, Beijing, China. After completing his PhD, he was with the University of Birmingham, where his research concerned phased arrays for reflector observing systems. Then he moved tothe Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Bristol, Bristol, U.K. His research in Bristol was mainly on the development of highly efficient and linear amplifiers. He is with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK since 2013. His past and current research interests include microwave power amplifiers, filters, electromagnetic compatibility, frequency selective surfaces, energy harvesting and wireless power transfer.
