Whether it’s at an airport terminal or a coffee shop, power outlets can be a contentious commodity. Imagine if you could charge your device simply by setting it down. No more wires, dongles, or bulky chargers. With wireless charging technology, that’s likely to become commonplace. Today,…

Measuring Wireless Power Transfer Efficiency (1)

2016-11-24

Transmission efficiency of the wireless power transfer (WPT) system can be measured with a vector network analyzer (VNWA). The following picture shows how we measured the transmission efficiency of this system. The yellow WPT coil in the left side is connected to the port 1 of VNWA, while the blue WPT coil in the right side is connected to the port 2 of VNWA. The resonant frequency of this system…

Measuring Lumped Elements Values for WPT coil

2016-11-16

Hello. I will explain how to measure and  decide  lumped elements values for WPT coil. Here is the WPT coil that I made for my experiments. The WPT coil consists of a resonant coil and a feed coil with SMA connector. The resonant coil is spiral and has parasitic capacitance between the spiral lines and this capacitance make this coil resonate at LC resonant frequency. The feed coil is a…

Wireless Power Transfer Analysis using LTSpice

2016-11-02

LTSpice can be used to calculate the efficiency and other parameters in wireless power transfer (WPT). First, We build the equivalent circuit diagram of the WPT system below. The figure and data came from the following paper. Sample, A. P., Meyer, D. a., & Smith, J. R. (2011). Analysis, experimental results, and range adaptation of magnetically coupled resonators for wireless power transfer. IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, 58(c), 544–554. http://doi.org/10.1109/TIE.2010.2046002…
