A contactless power transfer system for charging electric vehicles requires a high efficiency, a large air gap, and a good tolerance to lateral misalignment and needs to be compact and lightweight. A double-sided winding 10 kW transformer based on a 1.5 kW H-shaped core transformer was developed for a rapid charger. Even though the transformer capacity was… (More)
Incident-power-dependent extinction ratio of electroabsorption modulators is shown and theoretically investigated by using microscopic theory combined with heat-flux calculation. The phenomenon stems from voltage-dependent temperature rise and the calculated results agree well with the experiment.
