Design and Implementation of Continuous Inductive Wireless Power Transfer System for Electric Vehicle

G. Ramya, B. Christyjuliet


Wireless Power transfer is the transmission of electrical energy without wires as a physical link. In a wireless power transmission system, a transmitter device, driven by electric power from a power source, generates a time-varying electromagnetic field, which transmits power across space to a receiver device, which extracts power from the field and supplies it to an electrical load. The technology of wireless power transmission can eliminate the use of the wires and batteries. The main aim of the project is to present an overview of inductive wireless charging technology for the application of electric vehicles (EVs).  Here, wireless charging is done when the vehicle in rest as well as in the operation. In this method the storage device (battery) will charge without any cords which makes the device more compact and easy to use and provide even more comfort. WPT technology can transfer maximum power by achieving maximum efficiency.
