Analysis and Control of Multiphase Inductively Coupled Resonant Converter for Wireless Electric Vehicle Charger Applications

In this paper, an inductively coupled multiphase resonant converter is presented for wireless electric vehicle charging applications. As an alternative to the traditional frequency and phase shift control methods, a hybrid phase-frequency control strategy is implemented to improve the system efficiency. A theoretical analysis of the proposed system is carried out considering a wide battery state-of-charging range. In order to confirm the proposed converter and control technique, a laboratory prototype wireless charger is designed using 8-in air-gap coreless transformer and rectifier. The proposed control is compared with the conventional control methods for various load conditions at the different power levels. In comparison results, the proposed hybrid control methodology demonstrates the efficiency improvements of 1.1% at the heaviest load condition and 5.7% at the lightest load condition.
