Wireless Power Transfer: Principles and Applications offers comprehensive coverage of all key aspects of wireless power transfer (WPT) technologies, including fundamental theory, intelligent control, configuration analysis, and emerging power electronics techniques. This unique resource is the first book of its kind to provide in-depth discussion of energy transmission control schemes with emphasis on omni-directional vector control, energy-encryption-based security control, demand-based optimal designs for transmitter, pickup, and self-resonance coils, multiple-objective power distribution, and maximum efficiency and power control under various conditions.

In addition, this text:
Presents the methodologies and approaches of emerging multiple-objective WPT technologies
Discusses various applications for wireless charging techniques, including contactless power for electric vehicles, in-flight charging for unmanned aerial vehicles, and underwater wireless charging
Covers both intermittent and continuous impedance matching methods for different classes of coils
Features more than 400 high-quality illustrations and numerous figures and tables throughout
Wireless Power Transfer: Principles and Applications is an invaluable technical reference for academic researchers and industry professionals in power and energy engineering, and an excellent textbook for postgraduate courses in relevant areas of industrial and electronic engineering.
