Current methods of wireless power transfer (WPT) limit the mobility and usage of a device when it is actively charging. Here, a three-dimensional wireless power transfer technique known as quasistatic cavity resonance (QSCR) is studied in arbitrary geometries and practical scenarios. Physical fabrications and simulations demonstrate the viability of QSCR along with techniques for lowering the resonant frequency to meet safety standards. Two methods of lowering the resonant frequencies are presented, one by changing the physical dimensions and the other by increasing the systems capacitance. It is shown that QSCR is a feasible option to wirelessly transfer power in a three-dimensional space.
