A Review on Wireless Power Transfer

Parveen Kaur


This paper is a review of the various designs put forward by various people regarding the Wireless Power Transfer (WPT). Here the designs have been discussed, along with the purpose that the design can be used for, the efficiency of the power produced and also the ways to improve the efficiency of the design. The values of various parameters and diagrams used are based on the experimental results of various researchers. Finally, a suitable conclusion has been drawn regarding the best design, which can be used for WPT taking into consideration the various associated factors that have been discussed here.
