Abstract

The multiple fluctuations, such as grid DC input voltage, mutual inductance and the plug-in and plug-out of battery, may lead to instability and deterioration of dynamic performance of electric vehicle (EV) wireless power transfer (WPT) system. The overshoot issue can bring great current stress to EV WPT system, and may induce potential disastrous malfunction of the lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery. This study theoretically reveals the slow dynamic response and large overshoot of a traditional WPT system. For solving these issues, a reliable adaptive feedforward control scheme is proposed and applied in the user-side DC-DC converter, where the communication unit is eliminated. The feedforward loop is proved theoretically to suppress overshoot and system dynamic response. Besides, the feedforward control increases the selective range of control parameters, which can improve the system dynamics. Experiment results verifies that the proposed adaptive feedforward gain allows faster dynamics, and the aforementioned disturbances in EV WPT system can be solved while the system performance is not affected.
