Title: Guest Editorial Special Issue on Wireless Charging Systems

Abstract

Wireless power transfer is a safe and convenient method for electric vehicle (EV) charging. And, if designed properly, it can be highly efficient. Applications cover a wide range of power transfer levels from less than a kilowatt to a few hundreds of kilowatts with transfer distances from a few millimeters to a few hundreds of millimeters. Applications also cover stationary, dynamic (in-motion), or quasi dynamic wireless charging systems. Safety is inherent in wireless power transfer systems due to the large airgap separation between the source and load sides, and users do not have to touch any cables, connectors, or plugs at all. With the recent advancements in automation, parking aid systems can be integrated and the wireless charging process can be a simple “park and go” approach without requiring any input from the driver.When applied in motion, wireless charging can be the ultimate end of game in transportation electrification, providing reduced battery size and cost with unlimited range for EVs. This approach is also known as ”charge-on-the-go” or “roadway powered vehicle” concept. While the connected and automated vehicles can self-drive and self-park, they currently cannot self-charge. Furthermore, wireless charging is a key enabling technology for the widespread development and adoptionmore » of connected and automated vehicle technology for the future of smart mobility.« less
