Abstract

Magnetic resonant wireless power transfer (WPT) is an emerging technology that may create new applications for wireless power charging. However, low efficiency resulting from resonant frequency drift is a main obstructing factor for promoting this technology. In this paper, a novel method of coordinating the operating frequency and load resistor is proposed to prevent frequency drift. The system efficiency and input impedance are obtained by solving the system equivalent equations. In addition, the new resonant frequencies can be obtained by solving the input impedance equations. Moreover, the process of the coordination method is illustrated. When resonant frequency drift occurs, the system can now operate at the resonant state, and the efficiency can be improved by using the proposed method. The WPT system via magnetic resonance coupling is designed. Simulated and experimental results validating the proposed method are given.
