Efficiency changes, which is triggered by change of positioning, is primarily because of the change in magnetic flux in the receiving end where the transmission coil is slightly shifted in relation to the receiving coil. Furthermore, run magnetic field analysis when evaluating power supply of electric power or capturing the variations in spatial magnetic flux.
This example presents, an electromagnetic induction-type wireless power supply system using an excitation circuit positioned with a parallel resonance condenser on the receiving end, and a series resonance condenser on the transmission end will be analyzed. An efficiency change in relation to the disposition in the horizontal direction is evaluated from both power transmission efficiency and the coupling coefficient.
Power Value / Power Transmission Efficiency
When there are no displacements in the horizontal direction, power close to 4.7kW can be obtained with a maximum efficiency of 99%. The state where both the transmission and receiving coil centers match up is considered 0, and the distance that it moves in the horizontal direction (horizontal distance) is defined as displacement in the horizontal direction. As the horizontal distance between the transmission and receiving coil gets larger and displaced, both power supply and power transmission efficiency will decrease. Power transmission efficiency / power value will both be 0 at 180mm.
Since voltage of the transmission coil is constant in this model, the input voltage will change. Reduction of power value is thought to be because of the circuit design. With displacement in the horizontal direction, self-inductance of the coil will not change, but there will be a change in mutual inductance between coils. This causes the resonance frequency determined by the inductance and capacitor to be displaced, and power transmission efficiency will drop.
As with coupling coefficients, it will drop due to displacements in the horizontal direction.
