In today’s world, wireless devices are becoming a necessity. Wireless technology, such as magnetic resonance, is therefore increasingly relevant. The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of magnetic resonance as applied to wireless power transfer. The major challenge with this technology is the parasitic capacitance of the circuit, which can affect the efficiency to the point of causing the technology to be unusable. By tuning the circuit, our team aims to achieve optimal power transmission. We are studying and testing magnetic resonance in order to explore the feasibility of this form of wireless power transfer.
