About the Author
DR CHUN T. RIM developed the wireless power transfer (WPT) of on-line electric vehicles that was selected as 'the 50 Best Inventions of 2010' by TIME and 'the first of 10 emerging technologies in 2013' by the World Economic Forum. Dr. Rim also developed WPT for stationary EV charging, mobile devices, robots, and drones. He demonstrated the first 5m and 12m distance WPT using innovative dipole coils and also envisioned new theories for WPT such as magnetic mirror, gyrator circuit model, and phasor transformation. Since 2013, Dr. Rim has served as an Associate Editor of IEEE Trans. on Power Electronics (TPEL) and IEEE JESTPE. He also served as a Guest Editor of Special Issue on WPT at TPEL, JESTPE, TPEL, and Trans. on Industrial Electronics. He has served as the General Chair of 2015/2016/2017 IEEE WoW and published more than 160 articles, 14 books, and 150 patents, mostly on WPT.
DR. CHRIS MI is a Fellow and Professor at San Diego State University. His research interests are in electric and hybrid vehicles. He has taught tutorials and seminars on the subject of HEVs/PHEVs for numerous government agencies and global companies. Dr. Chris Mi started his research in wireless power transfer (WPT) in 2008. His team has developed a number of unique topologies of WPT systems, including the double sided LCC-compensated topology, the large power capacitive wireless power transfer (CPT) technology, and low-ripple dynamic WPT. Dr. Mi is an Area Editor of IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology and was an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics and IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications.
