EE & CPEN 3 - Wireless Electricity
Student Team: Kevin Schalk, Kaitlyn Helsing, Jonathan May
Advisor: Bob Conley
Sponsoring Organization: KEEN
Liaison: Bob Conley
For over a hundred years electric power has been exclusively distributed with wires. Our team has discovered an efficient method that eliminates the wires by transmitting power through the air.
Efficiently and safely transmit power without wires.
The intermediate deliverable is a prototype that will transmit enough power to light a flashlight bulb over a distance of 100 feet with an efficiency greater than 40%. The end project deliverable is a high power prototype intended to transmit 100W over the same distance with the same efficiency.
Project Management and Communication Expectations:
Our team will meet once a month during the summer preceding the academic year to share research conducted. During the school year out team will meet once a week to build the prototypes.
