Outline and Purpose of the Course This lecture picks up microwave power transmission (MPT) technology, rectifying antenna (rectenna), antenna and propagation for the MPT, microwave transmitters, and some MPT applications like the Space Solar Power Satellite/Station. This lecture also picks up the other wireless power transmission technologies like resonnance coupling, energy harvesting, and applied microwave technologies of microwave processing, wireless communications, and radar.
Course Goals Students learn about applied microwave engeering, mainly microwave power transmission.
Schedule and Contents Introduction,1time,The purpose and constitution of the lecture, and review of microwave engineering are explained.
Applications of Wireless Power Tramsmission,3-4times,Space Solar Power Satellite/Station and Ubiquitous power source as applications of microwave power transmission, the resonance coupling and energy harvesting as the other battery-less technologies are explained.
rectifying antenna (rectenna),1-2times,rectifying antenna (rectenna) for the MPT are explained.
antenna and propagation for the MPT,5-6times,Calculation of beam collection efficiency and beam propagation with FDTD method are explained. Phased array technologies, beam targetting method, non linear physics of microwave-plasma interation are overviwed.
Microwave transmitters,2times,High efficient semi-conductor amplifiers and microwave tubes are explained.
microwave processing, wireless communications, and radar,2times,Microwave processing, wireless communications, and radar texhnologies are explained.
The order of instruction for each topic and subtopic may vary, and the
course instructors will organize the lectures as appropriate for the students. Students will be informed of the lecture plan (for all 15 lectures) in advance and will have sufficient time for preparation.
