Abstract: In this paper, a theoretical and experimental analysis of wireless power transfer through a coplanar resonator array is presented. In particular, six identical spiral resonators are used to form an array and transfer power between an emitter and a receiver. All the spiral resonators resonate at about 20 MHz and the emitter and receiver coils are designed with formulas taken from literature. The resonator system is modeled using mutual inductances, being retardation not significant. The transmission coefficient is measured for four different arrangements of the six resonators and the experimental measurements are compared with the theoretical predictions, showing similar trends. The paper shows that the peaks of the transmission coefficient vary slightly for the resonator arrangements considered.
