We can apply the microwave power transmission technologies of the SPS for various application of commercial use. In our laboratory, we proposed some MPT application and carried out experiments as follows ;
E MPT for the fuel-free airplane
We have succeeded the fuel-free airplane experiment with 1.2kW
phased array as microwave power transmitter called MILAX (MIcrowave
Lifted Airplane eXperiment). Project leader was Prof.
Hiroshi Matsumoto and theproject was carried out with
E In-house Ubiquitous Power Source
We proposed the concept of the ubiquitous power source in the room with microwave power to charge mobile phones without wire. Our experiment is the first one in the world. We develop high efficient rectenna for weak power in the ubiquitous power source and study suitable antenna system to reduce the microwave power.
E Ubiquitous Power Source in emergency situation
We have succeeded the MPT experiment from airship above 50m to charge mobile phones with the wireless power in 2009. We used tow Phase Controlled Magnetrons. This is the first experiment of the MPT from the above in the world.
E Wireless charging system to Electric Vehicle
We carry out the MPT experiments to charge the EV in order to reduce the mount and weight of batteries and to increase the utilization and safety of the charging of the EV, and to make battery-less EV with the MPT charging for moving EV. We have developed high efficient plane-type rectenna with high power microwave. We have also succeeded to increase efficient from Tx to Rx antenna.
This is new concept in
which we use conventional deck plate as waveguide to distribute the microwave power
and we pick up DC power through the rectenna outlet. This concept was proposed
by Kashima co.. The project was carried out by Kashima
