Development and Characterization of a Tunable Resonant Shielded Loop Wireless Non-Radiative Power Transfer System

2011, Master of Science (M.S.), University of Dayton, Electrical Engineering.
In this thesis, the theory of coupled resonators for non-adiative wireless power transfer are explored from a lumped element circuit perspective. A basic circuit model is developed and standard circuit parameters are defined. A directly fed resonant shielded loop for wireless power transfer is presented. Basic lumped component values and circuit parameters are experimentally extracted for two resonant shielded loops. Optimal efficiency conditions are derived and used to design optimal matching networks. Matching networks are constructed and the system is tested for power transfer efficiency. Two means of producing a tunable system are explored: frequency tuned sources and dynamic matching networks. It is shown that frequency tuned systems cannot achieve maximum efficiencies. A tunable system is constructed and tested. Experimental results show excellent agreement with theory, and the ability to achieve maximum achievable efficiencies.
