Wireless Transmission of Electric Energy 2011-24-0084
This article focuses on the wireless transfer of energy. It describes the operation of a transformer without magnetic circuit associated with a resonant inverter to meet the constraints imposed by mobile sources (catenaries with magnetic induction to power electric vehicles). The receiving and transmitting units consist of an air-gap transformer and a generator who feeds the transformer. In this article, we show how to determine the transformer's parameters and configuration needed for this transfer to be efficient. The transformer is fed by a half-bridge converter for serial resonant load. The primary winding of the transformer is fixed on the ground. The secondary winding can move horizontally in a parallel plane of that of the primary. This application targets mainly the transfer of static electricity for the charging of batteries and super capacitors in electric cars and trams.
