Wireless Charging, Electric Vehicle, Roadway Electrification

Electrical Vehicles can only be successfully implemented when the constraints regarding limited energy storage units, power of batteries on-board and its limited lifetime are solved. Hybrid and Wireless charging systems for electric vehicles offers an alternative solution towards these problems by reducing the on-board battery size which also extends the electric vehicle range considerably which provides new opportunities for the future of even autonomous electrical vehicles. This review paper gives an overview about the emerging Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) technologies for EV applications. It gives a comparative description of conductive charging and wireless charging which is followed by the study of Static Wireless Charging and Dynamic Wireless Charging. Technical aspects of WPT systems, coil/pad designs and power converters are also reviewed with the implementation of a prototype.
