For the bidirectional wireless power transfer system of electric vehicles, the topology proposed in this paper includes a direct three-phase AC–AC matrix converter as the pre-stage main circuit, a bilateral inductor–capacitor–capacitor–inductor (LCCL) as the resonance compensation network, and a full-bridge converter as the latter stage circuit. According to the characteristics of the system topology, a new control strategy is proposed based on the de-re-coupling method. The control principle of the coordination work of the scheme is expounded, and the corresponding switch combination logic is designed. According to the three-phase voltage amplitude relationship at different stages, combined with the resonant frequency, the switch arms of the matrix converter are alternately controlled separately. The number of switching operations is reduced, the system efficiency and safety are improved, and the full range of soft switching operations of the converter is realized. The theoretical analysis of the bilateral LCCL resonance compensation network is carried out, and its constant voltage/current output characteristic and high power factor transmission characteristic are obtained. Finally, the effectiveness and feasibility of the bidirectional wireless power transfer system for electric vehicles proposed in this paper are verified by simulation analysis. View Full-Text
