Book description

Learn the fundamentals of architecture design, protocol optimization, and application development for wireless-powered communication networks with this authoritative guide. Readers will gain a detailed understanding of the issues surrounding architecture and protocol design, with key topics covered including relay-based energy harvesting systems, multiple-antenna systems for simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT), performance modeling and analysis, and ambient wireless energy harvesting based cellular systems. Current applications of energy harvesting and transfer in different wireless networking scenarios are discussed, aiding the understanding of practical system development and implementation issues from an engineering perspective. The first book to provide a unified view of energy harvesting and wireless power transfer networks from a communications perspective, this is an essential text for researchers working on wireless communication networks and wireless systems, RF engineers, and wireless application developers.


'This is a brilliant piece of work which provides a holistic view of the emerging energy harvesting-based wireless communications and networking technology. Starting with the basics … the book cohesively covers different aspects of this technology, including circuit and antenna design issues for wireless energy harvesting devices and performance modeling and analysis of wireless energy harvesting and transfer-based wireless networks, as well as applications of this technology in different wireless networking scenarios. Standardization activities on wireless energy harvesting and transfer are also discussed. As a valuable addition to the library of graduate students, researchers, and practitioners working in this area, this book will equip them for further reading and research on this exciting technology.'

Vahid Tarokh - Harvard University, Massachusetts

'Wireless power transfer and energy harvesting networks have received tremendous attention in both the research community and industry recently … This book contains a comprehensive review of the various topics which are nicely organised and blended in a coherent manner. It will be an excellent introductory text to get into this exciting new topic of research.'

Vincent Lau - Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
