The paper is focused on the optimization of the compensation network of a wireless power transfer system (WPTS) intended to operate in dynamic conditions.

Abstract

The paper is focused on the optimization of the compensation network of a wireless power transfer system (WPTS) intended to operate in dynamic conditions. A laboratory prototype of a WPTS has been taken as a reference in this work, allowing for the experimental data and all the numerical models here presented to reproduce the configuration of the existing device. The numerical model has been used to perform FEM analysis with variable relative positions of the emitting and receiving coil to simulate the movement in a 'recharge while driving' condition. Inductive lumped parameters, i.e., self and mutual inductances computed from FEM results, have been used for the optimal design of the compensation network necessary for the WPTS operation. The optimal design of the resonance circuits has been developed by defining objective functions, aiming to achieve these goals: transmitted power must be as constant as possible when the vehicle is in movement and the electrical efficiency must be satisfactory high in most of the coupling conditions. The performances of the optimized network are finally compared and discussed.
