Abstract

The environmental pollution caused by fossil fuels is a hot issue around the world in recent years. The gases lead to poor air quality, in particular in large cities, and the global warming that can cause ecological calamity such as tropical cyclones, heatwaves, drought, and extreme tides. International Energy Agency clearly states that the current energy trend is not sustainable environmentally, economically, and socially. Therefore, it must devise solutions to achieve the future economic growth without adverse environmental effects. The increasing diffusion of electric vehicles is driving academic and institutional research towards exploring different possible ways of charging vehicles in a fast, reliable, and safe way. For this reason, wireless power transfer systems have recently been receiving a lot of attention in the academic literature. This chapter reviews the main analytic and computational tools that are typically used to perform analyses in the context of inductive power transfer systems (IPTSs).

Static And Dynamic Charging

Wireless power transfer systems can be classified, based on their working modes, as either static (charging while the vehicle is not in motion) or dynamic (charging while the vehicle is moving along the road) (Bi et al., 2016).
