Inductive Power Charging for Electric Vehicles in Misalignment Conditions


This research work deals with the challenges and issues facing the misalignment contactless inductive power charging of electric vehicles (EVs). The focus is on analysis and design of the inductive power transfer (IPT) for dynamic (in-motion) charging systems. The computational electromagnetics approach is used here, and a graphical and programming platform is developed capable to link and co-simulate the models of the coupled coils with the models of the external circuitry of the overall IPT system consisting of: high frequency power inverter on the primary coil side, resonant tuning capacitors, diode bridge rectifier on the secondary coil side, DC filtering capacitor and the vehicle battery load. images
