If you’ve been following what I’ve been up to, you probably know how much I love reading and diving deep into research papers. This time, though, I changed it up and read a bunch of patents (some in Chinese that I had to translate 😭).
My group and I went on a week-long sprint of understanding different problems within wireless electricity, like range, efficiency, and power. After finally understanding a bunch of jargon, we found out that that magnetic coupling wireless power transfer (MC-WPT), through high efficiency, still deliver power at half the rate (10kW) as wire chargers (72kW).
To solve this power transmission problem, we read many patents to come up with new inventions- we finally came across this patent which it could 8x the power transmitted just by changing the types of coils used and their structure in the magnetic coupling mechanism.
