Abstract

This paper proposes and implements a stepless frequency regulation method for wireless power transfer (WPT) with a simple LC compensation network to provide load-independent transmitter current. It should be mentioned that the capacitor in LC compensation network is controlled by a switch. Different from previous switched capacitor compensation networks, which can only select a limited number of resonant frequency points, this model can choose the resonant frequency arbitrarily in a wide frequency range. In theory, the frequency range can be controlled from a few kilohertz to hundreds of kilohertz. The key is controlling the turn-on time of the switch and adjusting the activation time length of the controlled capacitor in every WPT cycle. Therefore, the proposed system is very suitable for multi-frequency WPT, as the system can work at full resonance with practically arbitrary frequency. A Simulink simulation serves for verification, and the results prove the system can change the resonant frequency from 100 kHz to 300 kHz continuously while keeping the transmitter current load-independent.
