  • Publication number: 20160079770
    Abstract: Aspects of a hierarchical power distribution network are described. In some embodiments, a first guided surface waveguide probe launches a first guided surface wave along a surface of a terrestrial medium within a first power distribution region. A guided surface wave receive structure obtains electrical energy from the first guided surface wave. A second guided surface waveguide probe launches a second guided surface wave along the surface of the terrestrial medium within a second power distribution region using the electrical energy obtained from the first guided surface wave.

  • Publication number: 20160079921
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for embedding data on a guided surface wave. A guided surface waveguide probe emits power as a guided surface wave received by a guided surface wave receive structure circuit. An aggregate electric load of the receiver circuit is modulated with reference to a data signal. A current at the guided surface waveguide probe is monitored. A data signal is recaptured at the guided surface waveguide probe.

  • Publication number: 20160079771
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for frequency-division multiplexing for wireless power providers using guided surface waveguide probes to transmit power. Guided surface waveguide probes may transmit power on multiple frequencies with potentially overlapping service areas. Frequency-agile wireless power receivers may tune to one or more frequencies. Cost, availability, and/or other information may be provided to the wireless power receivers. Power usage may be reported by the wireless power receivers to power providers.
