Electric vehicles are becoming more popular as an alternative to conventional gasoline-powered vehicles. In order to strengthen charging infrastructure, dynamic wireless charging (DWC) is a promising technology through which the vehicle battery can be continuously charged while the vehicle is in motion.

Abstract

Electric vehicles are becoming more popular as an alternative to conventional gasoline-powered vehicles. In order to strengthen charging infrastructure, dynamic wireless charging (DWC) is a promising technology through which the vehicle battery can be continuously charged while the vehicle is in motion. The main challenge of the DWC system is to investigate the capability for power transfer with the variation in operating parameters in consideration of enhanced efficiency. This study proposes an innovative approach to improve the performance of dynamic wireless charging systems by investigating the magnetic coupler via finite element analysis, exploring power pulsation and mutual inductances with variations in longitudinal, lateral, and air gap distances as variable factors. In addition to this, efficiency analysis is also explored with respect to the mutual inductance and various compensation schemes. The simulation studies are carried out using computer-assisted software, i.e., COMSOL Multiphysics 5.5 and MATLAB version 2022b. Finally, a comparative analysis of power transferred, mutual inductance, and efficiency is presented by the compensation schemes.
