A new operator-based nonlinear robust control design scheme for wireless power transfer systems with uncertainties is proposed in this paper. In the proposed control design system, to deal with the uncertainties in the wireless power transfer system, operator-based robust right coprime factorization approach is adopted to guarantee the robust stability. Moreover, the tracking performance is improved by using the proposed control design scheme. Simulations and experiments are tested to show the effectiveness of this proposed control design scheme.
