Compact Wireless Power Solutions for IoT Nodes on Rotating Platforms

This talk will provide an overview of recent advances in WPT solutions for electronics on mobile platforms. Case studies will be provided underlining the importance of wireless power technologies in contexts where electronics cannot be conveniently powered by batteries, particularly in industrial environments. Then, the talk will focus on rotating platforms. Techniques to reduce the area occupation of the coils while guaranteeing efficient power transmission will be discussed, and pulsed wireless power transfer solutions will be analyzed. A complete WPT system designed to supply power to an IoT node on a rotating platform will be described, and future steps proposed.
