Flexible wireless power/data transmission

Closed magnetic circuit structure
  • Formation of magnetic core on the middle and outer part of induction coil
    → Minimization of magnetic flux outflow
    → Maximization of power transmission efficiency
Fabrication & Result

Inductive power transmission with misalignment detection

Misalignment detection
  • Misalignment distance of two induction coil increase
    → Impedance between two coils(trans-impedance) increase
  • Trans-impedance change
    → Current changes of feedback coil on the backside of primary coil
  • Misalignment detection could be conducted through current of feedback coil measurement
Fabrication & Result

Experiment & Result


Self frequency tunable energy harvester

Principle
  • Horizontal force of primary cantilever > secondary: mod1
  • Horizontal force of primary cantilever < secondary: mod2

Experimental Results

Principle
  • The operating phase was shifted in real time as the change of excited frequency
  • The harvester operated at phase1 until the excited frequency increased to 35Hz
  • At 35Hz, the operating phase was shifted to phase2 in several seconds
  • The phase was returned to phase1 at 32Hz as the excited frequency decrease
