Autonomous System Concept of Multiple-Receiver Inductive Coupling Wireless Power Transfer for Output Power Stabilization against Cross-Interference among Receivers and Resonance Frequency Tolerance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Multiple-receiver resonant inductive coupling wireless power transfer (RIC-WPT) technique is emerging as a promising charging method for multiple household appliances, mobile devices, and wearable devices. However, this technique often suffers from output power fluctuation owing to the cross-interference among receivers as well as the manufacturing and aging tolerance of the resonant frequency (i.e., resonant frequency tolerance). This article proposes an autonomous RIC-WPT system concept to solve this difficulty. The proposed concept addresses the cross-interference and resonant frequency tolerance by incorporating the following two functions. First, the amplitude of the transmitter current is controlled to have a constant amplitude. Second, the phase of each receiver current is controlled to be orthogonal to that of the transmitter current by using an active reactance compensator installed in each receiver. The experiment of a two-receiver RIC-WPT system successfully verified that the two functions of the proposed system concept can stabilize the output voltage against the cross-interference and resonant frequency tolerance.
