About the book

Wireless power transfer is the process of transmitting electrical energy using electromagnetic waves. With the advent of wireless power transfer, energy can therefore be collected without the physical need of connecting a device to a power source. This technology certainly provides great convenience to mankind, since the hassle of using wires to connect a load to the power grid can be saved. The advantage of wireless power transfer is particularly evident in desolated rural areas where electricity is a scarce luxury to the residents. In general, electrical energy can be transmitted wireless via near-field and far-field mechanisms. The near-field or non-radiative method employs inductive coupling between coils of wires or capacitive coupling between metallic electrodes to realize the purpose of energy charging. The far-field or radiative method, on the other hand, transfers electrical energy via wave radiation. The concept is somewhat similar to that of a wireless telecommunication device. Instead of transmitting and receiving information, however, the far-field approach makes use of antennas to harvest energy. Despite the prevailing advancement of wireless power transfer technology, there are still open issues yet to be solved.

This book will give a detailed elucidation of some of the latest technologies used for wireless power transfer. The challenges faced by researchers working in this field and ways to overcome them are also discussed.

About the editor

Kim Ho Yeap

Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman

Dr. Kim Ho Yeap is an associate professor at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, Malaysia. He is a senior member of the IEEE, a Chartered Engineer (CEng) registered with the UK Engineering Council, a Professional Engineer (PEng) registered with the Board of Engineers Malaysia, and an ASEAN Chartered Professional Engineer. He received his BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Universiti Teknologi Petronas in 2004, his MSc in Microelectronics from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in 2005, and his PhD from Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman in 2011. In 2008 and 2015, respectively, he underwent research attachment at the University of Oxford (UK) and the Nippon Institute of Technology (Japan). He is the external examiner and external course assessor of Wawasan Open University. He is also the editor-in-chief of the i-manager’s Journal on Digital Signal Processing. He has also been a guest editor for the Journal of Applied Environmental and Biological Sciences and Journal of Fundamental and Applied Sciences. In addition, he has been given the university teaching excellence award and 21 research grants. He has published more than 100 research articles (including refereed journal papers, conference proceedings, books, and book chapters), which are mostly related to electromagnetics. Among his notable publications—and those of which he is most proud—are the report on the design of the receiver optics used in the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array telescope and the formulations that rigorously describe wave propagation in lossy waveguides.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Karla Skuliber

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
