With the increase of charging requirements in electrical equipment, the wireless power transfer (WPT) system with multiple receivers has gained more attention as the charging power and efficiency of a WPT system depends on the equivalent reflected impedance of the load. Based on the circuit model analysis of a single receiver WPT system, this paper investigated the multiple-receiver WPT system. The relationship between the mutual inductance, load, and system efficiency was discussed and the optimal load, the equivalent reflected impedance, and power division method were analyzed to design the proposed system control scheme. With the use of the perturbation and observation (P&O) algorithm control method, the current of transfer and receivers were regulated to achieve stable constant power charging. Furthermore, when searching the minimum input power of the system, the optimal efficiency under a fixed power division ratio was also received. The validity of the proposed system control method was confirmed by simulation and experimental results. Under the proposed control method, an efficiency above 80% can be achieved for a multiple-receiver WPT system with a fixed power division ratio working at 6.78 MHz. View Full-Text
