CoverStoryScreenShotThe 2nd Quarter 2016 issue of the IEEE Standards Education eMagazine focuses on the theme of Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) standards.  Articles address current activities, challenges, and opportunities related to WPT standards from a global perspective.  Authors discuss the primary standards in development and offer considerations on which standards to consider in designing wireless charging systems. Featured articles in this issue include:

  • “Wireless Charging of Consumer Electronics: Rubbish Heap or Mass Adoption?” by John Perzow. Reprinted with permission from Wireless Week.
  • “Selected Developments in Wireless Power Transfer Standards and Regulations” by Christos Kalialakis and Apostolos Georgiadis of CTTC, Nuno Borges Carvalho of Universidade de Aveiro, and Naoki Shinohara of Kyoto University
  • “SAE publishes TIR J2954, Wireless Power Transfer EV/PHEV” by Jesse Schneider, BMW North America
  • “Which Standard Should You Consider When Designing Portable Wireless Charging Systems?” by Alan Li, Toshiba Semiconductors

This issue also features the article, “IEEE brings Standards Education to Capstone Design Conference” by Jennifer McClain, IEEE Educational Activities, describing an innovative new workshop for educators that utilizes an interactive consensus-building exercise that simulates the activities of a standards working group tasked with developing a new technical standard.

News and Further reading related to the issue’s theme of WPT will is included as well as information on the newest set of recently released “Practical Ideas from Professors” that are a great resource on best practices and methodologies for introducing and exploring standards topics in academic environments.  Dr. Ahmed S. Khan of DeVry University provides a review of the book, “Modern Standardization” as a compliment to the featured IEEE.tv “Meet the Author” video on this book’s author, Ron Schneiderman.  In addition, the student application paper, “Implementation Of A Qi Compliant Wireless Power System For An Underwater Probe” are also featured.
