The 5th workshop will be held by the IEICE Technical Committee on
Wireless Power Transfer.
While the wireless power transfer (WPT) via magnetic fields, which has
been covered in previous workshops, uses coils, the WPT via electric
fields differs greatly in that the wireless coupling part is composed
of conductors such as parallel plates.
Therefore, the WPT via electric fields has an overwhelmingly simple
and lightweight structure, and is expected to be implemented in
society in a variety of situations, including installation in mobile
vehicles and drones.
In spite of this, the WPT via electric fields has been underrepresented.
There are two reasons for this: 1) the design theory had been
unexplored, and 2) high frequency (MHz band) power electronics are
However, the situation has changed in the last 10 years.
A unified design theory that can be used regardless of the coupling
method has emerged.
In addition, the commercial availability of high-efficiency GaN
devices has made it possible to increase the power of MHz-band
In this workshop, experts directly involved in the development of
electric field methods at universities and in industry will introduce
the basic theory and practical manufacturing.
Even if you have no experience in the WPT via electric fields, please
join this workshop.
