  author={Chwei-Sen Wang and Oskar H. Stielau and Grant Anthony Covic},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics},
This paper overviews theoretical and practical design issues related to inductive power transfer systems and verifies the developed theory using a practical electric vehicle battery charger. The design focuses on the necessary approaches to ensure power transfer over the complete operating range of the system. As such, a new approach to the design of the primary resonant circuit is proposed, whereby deviations from design expectations due to phase or frequency shift are minimized. Of particular…
