The landscape of wireless power transfer (#WPT) is experiencing a transformative shift, thanks to the remarkable potential of magnetizable concrete. In our most recent white papers, “WHY YOU NEED MAGNETIC CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS FOR WPT” and “WHY YOU NEED MAGNETIC MATERIALS FOR WIRELESS POWER TRANSFER“, the exceptional benefits of integrating magnetic materials into WPT systems take center stage. This study showcases how magnetizable concrete, crafted from cement or asphalt, outperforms traditional ferrite materials in both cost-effectiveness and transmission efficiency. Outdated charging technologies like catenary systems for trams and buses have proven inadequate in delivering a dependable and environmentally sustainable charging system. This novel breakthrough technology not only surpasses its limitations but sets a new standard for efficiency and effectiveness.
The magnetizable concrete’s multifunctionality adds a unique dimension to its benefits. Recent discoveries have unveiled the potential of concrete to serve as an energy storage facility, expanding its role beyond being the key enabler of WPT technology. This versatility amplifies its impact and opens doors to innovative applications.
Imagine a future where charging your electric vehicle becomes as effortless as parking or driving it on top of an energized road. Enter magnetizable concrete, a game-changing material that’s redefining the very fabric of WPT technology:
💡 Performance Par Excellence The analysis reveals that magnetizable concrete possesses an edge that significantly outstrips traditional ferrite tiles. Notably, the losses in the Ground Assembly (GA) coil are slashed by almost 45% for the same power, coil-to-coil distance, and GA coil geometry. This translates into enhanced efficiency, translating into tangible gains for WPT systems.
♻️ Sustainable unmatched sourcing Magnetizable concrete goes beyond excellence in performance and cost-efficiency. By incorporating 100% recycled cement and ferrites, this innovative technology echoes environmental sustainability. This choice not only reduces ecological impact but also demonstrates a dedication to efficiency, waste reduction and simple local material sourcing. This dual advantage of heightened efficiency and ecological responsibility positions magnetizable concrete as a game-changer in wireless power transfer systems.
💰 Economic Viability Redefined What’s more intriguing is the economic feasibility of magnetizable concrete. The white paper underscores that adopting magnetizable concrete doesn’t just improve performance; it also drastically reduces total costs for GA. In fact, the bill of materials (BOM) for traditional arrays can be 2.5x to 3.5x more expensive than the magnetizable concrete alternative. This affordability factor has the potential to transform the landscape of WPT adoption and scalability.
🏗️ Constructability allowing Scalability Magnetizable concrete’s adaptability offers advantages that span diverse applications and scales. This scalability aligns with the current trend in technology, where solutions designed for seamless expansion and integration hold significant value by minimizing errors, delays, and cost overruns. This inherent scalability highlights its capability to excel in both smaller, intricate projects and larger, complex systems.
🌡️ Safety as a Priority Safety takes a front seat with magnetizable concrete. Notably, it reduces coil temperature by approximately 28% compared to traditional ferrite-tile cores. This significant reduction in temperature not only enhances safety by minimizing overheating risks but also underscores the material’s practicality and reliability.
🚀 A New Horizon for WPT Magnetizable concrete is ushering in a new era for WPT systems. Its superior performance, cost-effectiveness, and safety features make it a powerhouse contender among various charging technologies. The findings of this study not only highlight the potential of magnetizable concrete-based solutions but also pave the way for a future where WPT systems are both efficient and financially viable.
