Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wireless power transfer (WPT) technology is one of the most emerging and promising technologies with most highly expected market impacts in automotive industries. The WPT technologies for electric vehicle can provide ultimate convenience, safety, and economic benefit with recent new technologies such as autonomous driving, sensor technologies, and communication technology.

The Guest Editor is inviting submissions for a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of "Wireless Power for Electric Vehicle." This Special Issue will focus on emerging wireless power transfer technology for electric vehicle. Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Inductive and capacitive wireless power transfer
  • Microwave power transmission for electric vehicle
  • Wireless power for autonomous driving and intelligent transportation system
  • High-efficiency rectifying circuit and amplifier
  • Electric motor using wireless power
  • Power devices and high power design for wireless power transfer
  • Static and dynamic wireless charging for electric vehicles, bikes, and trains
  • EMI/EMF issues on wireless power transfer
  • Wireless power using renewable energies
  • Control and communication for wireless power transfer

An inductive power transfer (IPT) system has lower peak efficiency and significantly lower load-average efficiency over the entire range of output power than typical power conversion systems because it transmits power wirelessly through magnetically coupled coils. In order to improve the load-average efficiency of the IPT system, this paper proposes an integrated control strategy consisting of full-bridge, phase-shift, and half-bridge control modes. The coupling coefficient and output power conditions for each control mode are theoretically analyzed, and the proposed control algorithm is established. In order to verify the analysis results, a 3.3 kW IPT system prototype is constructed, and it is experimentally verified that the load-average efficiency is improved by up to 3.75% with respect to the output power when using the proposed control scheme. In addition, the proposed control has the additional advantage that it can be directly applied to the existing IPT system without changing or adding hardware. Full article

Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) has been a research focus in recent years. This paper studies the inductor-capacitor-capacitor and parallel (LCC-P) compensation topology to achieve a compact receiver for AUVs. Unlike the series-series (SS) compensation topology, the LCC-P topology retains the advantages of the double-sided LCC topology and has a more compact receiver than the double-sided LCC topology with fewer elements used on the receiver side. The analytical model of such a WPT system is established to analyze the output power and transfer efficiency. The LCC-P topology has a higher efficiency compared to the SS topology due to the smaller conduction loss of the inverter. Moreover, a method of eliminating the DC filter inductor L0 is proposed to further decrease the size and weight of the receiver. The amplitude of the withstanding voltage on the receiver compensation capacitor without L0 is approximately decreased by 40% compared to that with L0. Both cases of with and without L0 have a constant current output and the peak efficiency without L0 is about 94%, which is 1% lower than that with L0. A prototype was built and the experimental results verified the theoretical analysis. Full article
