Reports from experimental laboratory work have described catastrophic failure of power MOSFETs used in square-wave voltage sources driving resonant four-coil wireless power-transfer (WPT) networks. Simulation with PSpice has duplicated the problem, identified its probable origins, and presents possible avenues for amelioration.
