  • Introduction to Special Two Part Series on Wireless Power Transfer (WPT)

    Xiaodong Shi (Lead Editor-WPT Series) My name is Xiaodong Shi. I am the lead editor of this Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) special two part series of the IEEE Transportation Electrification eNewsletter. WPT has gained significant popularity over recent years as a convenient and safe alternative to the conventional conductive charging method. This WPT special two part series is aimed at providing a comprehensive overview and interpretation of wireless charging technology for Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicles. ...

  • Overview about Wireless Charging of Electrified Vehicles – basic principles and challenges

    By, Dr. Joachim G. Taiber Republished with permission from Emobility Tec –March 2014 Edition There are many hurdles that are related to the introduction of full electric vehicles – first of all the limited range which is due to the limited energy density of existing battery chemistries inferior to gasoline or diesel-powered vehicles. But if we assume a practical radius of action within the available range, the vehicle has to be recharged in a ...

    By, Chris Mi Co-written by Subhadeep Bhattacharya and Manoj Kumar Mallela, editors of IEEE TEI Newsletter This article is written based on the part of presentation given by Dr. Chris Mi at the Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) workshop at The University of Michigan in Dearborn, MI, March 13 2014. Dr. Chris Mi is a Professor of Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Michigan in Dearborn. Contrary to general belief, wireless ...

  • Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Research Activities on Wireless Power Transfer Systems

    Omer C. Onar, Madhu Chinthavali, Steven Campbell, Cliff White, Larry Seiber, Lixin Tang, Chester Coomer, Paul Chambon, John M. Miller, and P. T. Jones INTRODUCTION Wireless power transfer (WPT) is a paradigm shift in electric-vehicle (EV) charging that offers the consumer an autonomous, safe, and convenient option to conductive charging and its attendant need for cables. WPT can be fully autonomous due to the vehicle and grid side radio communication systems, and is ...

  • Practical and Implementation Issues of Wireless Power Charging of EV’s

    By: John M. Miller, JNJ Miller plc Edited By: Xiaodong Shi INTRODUCTION The field of wireless charging of plug-in and battery electric vehicles (PEV) has grown exponentially in recent years to the point that today several companies offer commercial wireless chargers as aftermarket products for integration into light duty passenger vehicles [1]. Wireless power transfer (WPT) can be viewed as a revolutionary step in PEV charging because it fits the paradigm ...
