The world is modernizing with each second passing by. World is ushering toward an era of environmental consciousness. So, green technologies and sustainable solutions vandalize previous technologies, the same is with the automobile industry. Although man learned and started to fly, roadways are the most preferred mode of transport. Usage of conventional fuel vehicles contributes a cumbersome share to the pollution caused. Obvious solution which tackles above problem is electric vehicle. Even though electric vehicles were widely commercialized in the market a decade or two ago, it was not able to reach common masses and impact their life. As rightly said, there is no 100% efficient perpetual machine in the universe, electric vehicle too have a bunch of problems associated with it. The major problem which hindered the substantial success of electric vehicle is charging. Existing vehicles are obscure in case of long-distance travel and require very frequent charging. To tackle the so arisen problem, charging stations need to be established which requires extensive changes in infrastructure and will be lucrative to respective governments. Our paper involves methods to wirelessly charge an electric vehicle. The paper emphasizes on the usage of multiple coils which develops the energy that transmits about the capability and specially designed three-phase coil which improves efficiency along with inductive power transfer mechanism. A method for measuring the energy consumed by the vehicle is also discussed.
