Investment of battery packs; standardization is difficult; swapping stations need a lot investment, space and manpower; safety and reliability is of concern Charge at home or public space, need large installation of charge stations For an EV with a 24kWh battery pack, charging in 15 minutes means 96kW. This is way over the power available in private homes. Issues of Con. Charging and Battery Swapping Electric safety is of concern: electric shock due to rain, etc. Charge station, plug and cable can be easily damaged, stolen Charge/swap station takes a lot of space and affect the views Wireless Charging Definition of WPT Wireless power transfer (WPT) Inductive power transfer (IPT) Contactless power system (CPS), Wireless energy transfer Strongly coupled magnetic resonance High-efficiency inductive-power distribution The essential principles are the same given the distances over which the power is coupled is almost always within one quarter of a wavelength and therefore, the fundamental operation of all of these systems can be described by simple coupled models Grant Covic and John Boys, “Modern Trends in Inductive Power Transfer for Transportation Applications,” IEEE journal of emerging and selected topics in power electronics, vol. 1, no. 1, march 2013 Methods of Wireless Power Transfer Electromagnetic Induction Radio wave 电磁感应式 无线电波 Wireless Power Transfer Radiation Microwave 电能的无线传输 辐射式 微波 Electromagnetic Resonance Laser 电磁谐振式 激光 In 1830’s, Faraday's law of induction In 1890’s, Tesla had a dream to send energy wirelessly GM EV1 used an Inductive charger in the 1990’s 2007, MIT demonstrated a system that can transfer 60W of power over 2 m distance at very low efficiency Wireless/inductive chargers are available on the market Qualcomm, Delphi (Witricity), Plugless Power, KAIST, etc. have developed EV wireless charger prototypes Ultrasound 超声波 Predicted Wireless Charging Market $17 Billion in 2019 Problems and Difficulties Magnetic field is diminishing proportional to1/r3 Often the mutual inductance is less than 20% or 10% of the self inductance Analytical calculation of coil mutual inductance is next to impossible Further analytical method is needed Numerical simulation and coupled field - lumped parameter simulation is also of paramount importance High frequency HFSS instead of static FEM for high frequency High cost Low efficiency Large size Limited distance Sensitive to vehicle alignment Need novel designs and methods to study these systems A Wireless Power Transfer System Secondary controlled WPT Covic, G.A.; Boys, J.T., "Inductive Power Transfer," Proceedings of the IEEE , vol.101, no.6, pp.1276,1289, June 2013.
