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

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
