Design and implement an adaptive position adjustment coupler for coil-misaligned inductive contactless power transfer system

Efficiency and power of inductive contactless power transfer (ICPT) system are influenced by the variation of mutual inductance, and the mutual inductance will decrease if the position between transmitter coil and receiver coil is misaligned. In order to solve this problem, an adaptive position adjustment (APA) coupler is proposed to improve the performance… (More)
