【摘要】Wireless power transfer systems (WPTSs) with inductive coupling are advantageously used to charge the battery pack of electric vehicles. They basically consist of coil coupling, power supply circuitry connected to the transmitting side of the coil coupling, and power-conditioning circuitry connected to the receiving side of the coil coupling. This paper presents the design and implementation of a wireless power transfer (WPT) battery charger for an electric city car. A short overview on the working principles of a series–series resonant WPTS is given before describing in detail the design procedure of the power circuitry needed for its operation, i.e., an alternating-current–direct-current converter cascaded by a high-frequency inverter in the transmitting section and a diode rectifier cascaded by a chopper in the receiving section. The coil coupling with spiral coils is designed with the help of a finite-element-method code. A prototype of the WPT battery charger is built up according to the design results, and experiments that validate the design procedure are carried out.
