In this paper, a hybrid system topology with one-way wireless charging function and the function of the bi-directional data communication is proposed for the problem of electric energy replenishment and data transmission faced by robot fish in the implementation of autonomous submarine cable inspection. Three working modes of the system and the time-sharing multiplexing method are studied. In the power transmission mode, high-efficiency wireless charging is realized by utilizing the transmission characteristics of a series–series (SS)-type resonant network which involves series resonant networks in both the primary side and the secondary side. In the alignment detection and handshake communication mode, the charging platform distance recognition and the handshake signal transmission are implemented through a series–parallel (SP)-type resonant network based on the ASK (amplitude shift keying) modulation method. In the high-speed data transmission mode, the reverse (secondary to primary) high-speed transmission of the inspection data is achieved through a SP-type resonant network based on the OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) modulation method. The three modes share the same coupled coils via a reconfigurable resonant network. The working principle of the system is expounded, the system characteristics under each working mode are analyzed, and the time-division multiplexing control strategy is given. The rationality and effectiveness of the scheme are verified by experiments. View Full-Text
