ultrasonic power transmission


Does anyone know if it is possible to tranmit power with ultrasons
(about 20W) and to convert it for example in electrical energy ?
Would the losses be important ?

Regards,

Christophe Greffe

Re: ultrasonic power transmission
Yes it is possible to transfer power by ultrasound without too high losses.
Piezoelectric transformers, where power is transmitted by a ultrasonic field instead of an magnetic field has been known for a long time. One of the first attempts were made in the 60'ies by L.D. Rosen.
Transformers based on his design is used as high voltage supply (1 kV, 5 mA) for the backlight in notebook computers.
More resent designs have been used for supplying low voltage, high currents (12 V, 1 A) as well.
Efficiency is between 95-99,? %

Best regards

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
