Acoustic energy transfer (AET) is a relatively new form of contactless energy transmission that uses sound waves to wirelessly convey energy. In contrast to inductive coupling, it is suited for energy transmission over distances that are large in comparison to the transmitter and receiver dimensions. The frequencies that are used are low, minimizing losses and keeping the electronics simple. This review summarizes the work done on AET by various researchers.
