A complicating aspect in the control design of resonant inductive power transfer systems is the absence of a direct communication link between primary and (multiple) secondary system sides. This paper introduces a new adaptive sliding-mode control surface, which continuously adapts the inductive system's input power to the required, but unknown, variable(More)
Recent improvements in semiconductor technology make efficient switching possible at higher frequencies, which benefits the application of wireless inductive energy transfer. However, a higher frequency does not alter the magnetic coupling between energy transmitter and receiver. Due to the still weak magnetic coupling between transmitting and receiving(More)
This paper presents a novel control strategy based on variable structure theory (VST) for the generator side converter to regulate the dc link voltage of a direct driven PMSG wind energy conversion system (WECS). The validity of the technique is theoretically analyzed, and the design procedure is presented. The primary merit of the proposed technique is(More)
