Optimal Efficiency and Power Control of High Efficient Wireless Power Transfer System

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 644)


The paper discusses with optimal strategy of efficiency and power control for wireless power transfer systems. The proposed method is based on exact setting of phase shift angle between the primary and the secondary voltages. The paper further summarizes fundamental mathematical description and includes supporting simulation results. The possibilities of proposed control and implementation in DSP are briefly described. All theoretical assumptions are verified by laboratory measurement on experimental prototype of WPT system.
