Ky Sealy currently works for WiTricity Corporation as a Senior Principal Engineer. Ky began working in the field of resonant wireless power transfer in 2010 as an electrical engineer and technical lead for an efficient 5 kilowatt resonant wireless power system. Since 2010 he has been directly involved in designing resonant wireless power systems ranging in power from a few hundred milliwatts to 25 kilowatts across a range of applications and industries.
Ky has served as the sub-team chair for alignment on SAE’s J2954 automotive wireless charging standards committee since shortly after its inception in 2011. Since March, 2014 Ky has been the chair for the resonator administration committee in the AirFuel Alliance (formerly A4WP) responsible for all technical aspects of resonant magnetic interoperability. In June 2016, Ky was elected chair of the consolidated Magnetic Resonance Working Committee, overseeing all technical aspects of resonant wireless power transfer in the AirFuel Alliance.
As an electrical engineer, he has a broad background in electronic and software systems. He holds a Master’s degree in electrical engineering from Utah State University where he previously taught Microelectronics I & II as an invited lecturer. Since beginning his career in engineering, he has worked in a wide variety of fields including advanced LIDAR systems, UAV RF communications, and end-to-end system design for several start-up companies. During his career he started an engineering design and consulting business where he served an even wider range of industries ranging from medical and aerial to robotics and power design. Ky Sealy has a number of issued patents and patents pending as well as publications in the areas of LIDAR and resonant wireless power transfer.
