Design and Implementation of a GSM Based Wireless Power Transfer for AC or DC Load

Albert Kofi Kwansah Ansah


This paper seeks to design and implement a Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) based wireless power transmitter and receiver circuits for the control of various loads. The design is based on a self-resonating circuit which converts Direct Current (DC) to Alternating Current (AC) through a coupling coil. The results showed that power is effectively transferred wirelessly through resonance coupling technique. It was then concluded that the nearer the distance, the higher the voltage transferred. This system can be actuated remotely; thus has improved operational convenience and hence extends the frontiers of GSM technology by implication.
