This paper analyzes modern solutions in wireless charging system development. The main energy transfer standards, prototypes and experimental assemblies and their characteristics are considered. We present circuits and engineering solutions of the transmitting and receiving parts of the developed wireless energy transfer system. The results of testing the prototype are discussed, as well as obtained dependencies of the efficiency from the transmitted power and characteristic curve for various energy transfer distances. The presented prototype ensures magnetic insulation and features energy transfer up to 76.47% and can be used in swarm robotic systems for balancing energy resources of swarm and wireless power transfer between agents of swarm and in other different robotic complexes.
