This paper presents the design and simulation of an efficient four-coil wireless power transfer (WPT) system using magnetically-coupled resonant circuits (MCRC). Simulations show that a system capable of transmitting power over a transmitter-to-receiver separation of 2m with efficiency exceeding 70% at a frequency of 100kHz.
