Brief Comparative Study On Wireless Power Transfer System for Implantable Biomedical Devices : A Review

Authors(2) :-Karan Kamboj, Neha Gupta

Wireless power is one of the new terms that define this century. In the age of mobility, the need for wireless power transfer (WPT) is growing fast. There are several approaches for transferring the electric power wirelessly. Wireless power transfer (WPT) via magnetic induction is an emerging technology that is a result of the significant advancements in power electronics. Mobile phones can now be charged wirelessly by placing them on a charging surface. Electric vehicles can charge their batteries while being parked over a certain charging spot and also used for charging biomedical devices. In this paper, different methodologies for WPT are investigated as well as advantages, disadvantages and possible applications for each one. A qualitative comparison between main methods has been achieved based on separation distance, transmitting power, cost, efficiency, and safety.
