Abstract

This paper proposes an algorithm for the extraction of primary-side first harmonic voltage and current components for inductive wireless power transfer (WPT) links by employing quadrature demodulation. Such information allows for the accurate estimation of corresponding receiver-side components and hence permits the monitoring of the output voltage and resistance necessary for protection and/or control without using either sensors or feedback communication. It is shown that precision estimation is held as long as the parameter values of the system are known and the phasor-domain equivalent circuit is valid (i.e., in continuous conduction mode). On the other hand, upon light load operation (i.e., in discontinuous conduction mode), the proposed technique may still be employed if suitable nonlinear correction is employed. The methodology is applied to a 400 V, 1 kW inductive WPT link operating at a load-independent-voltage-output frequency and is well-verified both by simulations and experiments.
