Abstract

The wireless powering efficiency of traditional Strongly Coupled Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) systems is highly sensitive to the alignment between the transmitter and receiver elements; an issue that has limited their applicability in practical wireless power transfer systems. This paper proposes a novel set of SCMR-based topologies that are insensitive to misalignment and isotropic while providing large wireless powering efficiencies. The systems, which are presented here, achieve power transfer efficiencies above 50% over the complete misalignment range of 0-90° with performance that is significantly better than typical SCMR elements.
