Wireless Power Transfer: Design, Modeling, and Applications
Contactless power transfer, medium voltage to low voltage, data center, LLC
Wireless power transfer (WPT) have been explored for various applications. Less attention has been paid to the use of WPT for commercial or industrial applications and power distribution. An isolated wireless power link enables a touch safe interface without electrically energized contacts eliminating any arc flash or electrocution hazard. This concept will for example enable safe medium voltage distribution inside data centers eliminating low voltage distribution with large bus bars and cables and bring voltages above 1kV directly to the rack. A design methodology is developed for a low loss, high voltage-transfer-ratio wireless power link and medium voltage power converter.
