AbstractWireless transmission of power has been in research for over a century. Our project aims at transmitting electric power over a distance of room. Various methods using microwaves, lasers, inductive coupling, capacitive coupling and acoustic medium have been used. In our project, we are majorly focusing on acoustic method of transferring power. Previous attempts of transferring power using acoustic methods have employed the usage of ultrasonic sound. In our project, we are using infrasonic sound as a medium to transfer electrical power. For this purpose, we are using suitable transducers and converters to transmit electric power from the 220V AC power supply to a load over a considerable distance. This technology can be used to wirelessly charge various devices more effectively.
