Abstract

A novel phase-shift control of a semibridgeless active rectifier (S-BAR) is investigated in order to utilize the S-BAR in wireless energy transfer applications. The standard receiver-side rectifier topology is developed by replacing rectifier lower diodes with synchronous switches controlled by a phase-shifted PWM signal. Theoretical and simulation results show that with the proposed control technique, the output quantities can be regulated without communication between the receiver and transmitter. To confirm the performance of the proposed converter and control, experimental results are provided using 8-, 15-, and 23-cm air gap coreless transformer which has dimension of 76 cm × 76 cm, with 120-V input and the output power range of 0 to 1kW with a maximum efficiency of 94.4%.
