1. A method of configuring a wireless power system, the method comprising:

  • transmitting, by a plurality of antennas of a wireless power transmitter, a first plurality of wireless power waves to a first receiver that uses energy from the first plurality of wireless power waves to power or charge an electronic device that is coupled with the first receiver, wherein the first plurality of wireless power waves is transmitted using a first set of transmission features;

    while transmitting the first plurality of wireless power waves using the first set of transmission features, receiving, by a communications component of the wireless power transmitter;

    a user-configurable operational parameter that includes information used to configure operation of the wireless power transmitter; and

    information that identifies a location of the first receiver relative to the wireless power transmitter;

    configuring, by a processor, the wireless power transmitter based upon the user-configurable operational parameter and the information that identifies the location of the first receiver; and

    while the wireless power transmitter is configured based upon the user-configurable operational parameter, transmitting by the plurality of antennas of the wireless power transmitter, a second plurality of wireless power waves using a second plurality of transmission features, distinct from the first set of transmission features, to the first receiver, wherein the second plurality of wireless power waves forms a constructive interference pattern in three dimensional space proximate to the location of the first receiver.
