  2. Project Proposal and Purpose • Hardware Design and Implementation • Level 1 and 2 Block Diagrams • Software Design and Implementation • Use Case, System Context Diagram • Division of Labor for Major Tasks • Feasibility and Risks • Economic Viability, Environmental Aspects, Sustainability, Manufacturability, Safety, & Impact • Schedule for the First Semester of Work • Budget Sushia Rahimizadeh Overview

  3. This project will consist of a scalable box or drawer in which small hand-held devices or toys can be placed and wirelessly charged. The box will require only an external source of power in order to be able to charge the devices. The devices will perform all RF harvesting and charging automatically without user input. The user simply opens the lid, places the devices inside, and shuts the lid. The devices do the rest. Sushia Rahimizadeh Proposal

  4. The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of scalable, commercially viable wireless charging. • It will be shown that any device is capable of being integrated with this technology and can be charged wirelessly in any station. • These stations can be placed in any household, business, hotel room, etc. and can be of varying size. Sushia Rahimizadeh Purpose

  5. Heinrich Hertz – Directional, relatively high power free-space power transmission • Nikola Tesla – High power, omnidirectional power transmission • Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Raytheon (1973) -- 30 kW transferred over 1.6 km • Topic of “Wireless Power” has been of interest since early 1900’s Sushia Rahimizadeh State of the Art Number of books that include the keyword “wireless power” since 1800, found by using Google Ngrams.

  6. Sushia Rahimizadeh Setup

  7. “Power Transmission” • DC electrical power into RF power • RF power transmitted through space to some electrically far point • Power is collected and converted into DC power at this point Sushia Rahimizadeh Background • Multi-mode cavity • No field nulls • Field uniformity desired • Harvest power at any point within the cavity

  13. Responsibility: • Converts supply power into a 1W 2.2 GHz RF modulated signal Ben Kaslon Power Transmit Circuit

  14. Responsibility: • Convert supply power to a 2.2 GHz signal • Design Goals: • This signal will be modulated tens of MHz around 2.2GHz in order to improve power density uniformity in the box. • During development, input power is supplied from lab bench DC supply, but final design will be supplied from standard wall outlet. Ben Kaslon Voltage-Controlled Oscillator Voltage Controlled Oscillator: Crystek CVCO55BE

  15. Ben Kaslon Frequency Allocation • 2.2GHz was chosen • Unallocated in commercial space • No consumer wireless devices will be harmed by this frequency coupling onto the devices • Reduced component size • Large availability of components operate at this frequency

  16. Responsibility: • Amplify 2.2GHz signal from the VCO to 1W • Design Goal: • Must be designed to make the transmitter circuit as efficient as possible. Ben Kaslon Power Amplifier Example Power Amplifier

  17. Responsibility: • Transmits the amplified and modulated 2.2GHz signal • Design Goal: • Match Simulations • Display low loss to circuit • Well matched to the operating frequency • Widest bandwidth possible. Ben Kaslon Transmit Antenna

  18. Patch antenna will be used. • Relatively easy to design • Small size • Low cost • Can be etched directly into PCB • Lots of research available on design Ben Kaslon Transmit Antenna Example Patch Antenna

  19. Efficiency of the designed power amplifier too low • If we are unable to design a sufficiently efficient amplifier, a COTS amplifier will have to be used • Ideally want 90% but will accept 50% • Design of the antenna does not match the simulations. • New simulations will have to be done with different, more predictable substrates • Non-uniform field distribution in the cavity • Need to try a new modulation scheme Ben Kaslon Power Transmit Circuit Risks

  45. Main concern of the system is to ensure minimum leak of RF power in compliance with FCC regulations It will be easy to see if this project is working or not. Either the battery on the device will be charged or it will not Component tolerances will not affect the design, apart from negligible detractions from system efficiency Devin Callahan Manufacturability

  46. Leaked power is chief concern • The system must abide by FCC regulations by emitting no stray power • Also relates to overall efficiency • No other environmental concerns Devin Callahan Environmental Considerations

  47. This system exhibits zero risk to the environment or the population so long as all RF energy is kept within the box A standard 120VAC outlet plug will eventually be used Devin Callahan Safety
