Abstract

At present, about nineteen resonant compensation networks capable of operating as pulsating voltage source are utilized for wireless power transfer (WPT), in which all resonant elements participate in resonance. The majority of networks employ full-bridge or half-bridge topologies which suffer from significant stray and leakage inductances that trap the energy and limit the power transfer; hence, reduce the efficiency. Therefore, these topologies utilize additional resonant networks with many elements and switches to exploit all magnetic field-flux density curve quadrants to eliminate switching losses. Such an approach is less desirable as it adds cost and increases complexity. Therefore, this paper proposes four DC-DC converters that utilize resonant compensation networks without additional resonant tanks, targeting Electric Vehicles wireless charging applications. The proposed converters meet the requirements of charging time, cost, range and high efficiency without a dc flux bias as in existing solutions. The technical viability of the proposed dedicated dc-dc converters for wireless power transfer applications has been validated using preliminary simulations.
