Abstract
Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) technology offers unprecedented opportunities to future cellular systems, making it possible to wirelessly recharge the mobile terminals as they get sufficiently close to the Base Stations (BSs). Here, we investigate the tradeoffs involved in the recharging process as multiple mobile users move across the cellular network, by systematically measuring the charging efficiency (i.e., amount of energy transferred as opposed to that transmitted) accounting for different mobility models, speeds, frequency range and inter-BS distance. We consider dense cellular deployments, where power is transferred to the mobile users through beamforming...
