Wireless power transfer is becoming a crucial and demanding task in the IoT world. Despite the already known solutions exploiting a near-field powering approach, far-field WPT is definitely more challenging, and commercial applications are not available yet. This thesis proposes the recent frequency-diverse array technology as a potential candidate for realizing smart and reconfigurable far-field WPT solutions. In the first section of this work, an analysis on some FDA systems is performed, identifying the planar array with circular geometry as the most promising layout in terms of radiation properties. Then, a novel energy aware solution to handle the critical time variability of the FDA beam pattern is proposed. It consists on a time-control strategy through a triangular pulse, and it allows to achieve ad-hoc and real time WPT. Moreover, an essential frequency domain analysis of the radiating behaviour of a pulsed FDA system is presented. This study highlights the benefits of exploiting the intrinsic pulse harmonics for powering purposes, thus minimising the power loss. Later, the electromagnetic design of a radial FDA architecture is addressed. In this context, an exhaustive investigation on miniaturization techniques is carried out; the use of multiple shorting pins together with a meandered feeding network has been selected as a powerful solution to halve the original prototype dimension. Finally, accurate simulations of the designed radial FDA system are performed, and the obtained results are given.
