Wireless power transfer (WPT) is the transmission of electrical energy to other external/internal devices without the need for wire connection. Such a system is useful to power electrical devices as a promising technology for various emerging applications. The implementation of devices integrated with WPT alters the existing technologies and enhance the theoretical concept for future works. Over the last decade, various studies have been conducted on the applications of magnetically coupled WPT systems, where a general overview over such devices would be beneficial. Hence, this paper presents a comprehensive review over various WPT systems developed for commercially existing applications. The importance of WPT systems is first reported from the engineering point of view, followed by their uses in biomedical devices.
