Xiaodong Shi (Lead Editor-WPT Series) My name is Xiaodong Shi and I am the lead editor for IEEE’s Transportation Electrification Initiative eNewsletter Special edition on Wireless Power Transfer (WPT). It has been a pleasure to have brought you this important two-part series on an important emerging technology that could enable the widespread adoption of electric vehicles. In part one of the series (the July edition), we covered the basics concepts and recent developments in research and ...
Large-Scale, Commercial Wireless Inductive Power Transfer (WIPT) for Fixed Route Bus Rapid Transportation
by Matt Jurjevich (and edited by Dr. Fei Gao associate TEI editor) An Introduction to Inductive Charging There is a new charging technology making its way on to our streets or, should I say into our streets. It’s called Wireless Inductive Power Transfer (WIPT) or just “Inductive Charging”, and it’s poised to change the way we supply power to our electric vehicles forever. The focus of this article is to provide an overview of ...
Chun T. Rim, Senior Member, IEEE (email@example.com) (This article is co written and edited by Dr. Lixin Ren, Editor of IEEE TEI Newsletter from an original paper by Prof. Chun T. Run) Recent developments of electric vehicle technologies have largely been driven by requirements to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) such as CO2 and to mitigate air pollution especially in urban areas. Various electric vehicles use batteries for energy storage ...
Joe Bablo, Ken Boyce, and Hai Jiang Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Introduction The development of wireless charging systems for electric vehicles has been in process for some time. This technology offers the user a “hands free” method of charging, but also brings along some safety aspects that are unique to wireless charging. Standardization efforts around design and safety are in process, and these standards will be needed to insure safe equipment that is functional and able to ...
