Parameter identification of bidirectional IPT system using chaotic asexual reproduction optimization
Bidirectional inductive power transfer (IPT) system facilitates contactless power transfer between two sides and across an air gap, through weak magnetic coupling. Typically, this system constitutes a high-order resonant circuit and, as such, is difficult to design and control. In this study, a novel technique for parameter identification of bidirectional IPT system is presented by using chaotic asexual reproduction optimization (CARO). The asexual reproduction optimization (ARO) is a novel kind of evolutionary-based algorithm that mathematically models the budding mechanism of asexual reproduction. The CARO employs chaotic sequence to enhance ARO’s global searching ability. The parameter identification of a bidirectional IPT system is posed as an optimization process with an objective function minimizing the errors between the estimated and measured value. The implementation of the CARO-based parameter identification technique is analyzed in detail. Simulations are used to test the robustness and generalization ability of the proposed technique.
