Modeling Wireless Power Transfer Using Ansys Maxwell by Tianze Kan and Mark Solveson

The concept of wireless power is originated from Heinrich Hertz and well known for the work of Nikola Tesla.  Nowadays inductive-based wireless power has already been used to charge biomedical implants, consumer electronics, and even electric vehicles. 

Accurate modeling of a wireless power transfer system is a challenge due to the nonlinear magnetic materials used in the system and the complex magnetic effects.  In order to address the challenge, Ansys provides finite element analysis in Maxwell.  In this webinar, general topics such as magnetic analysis of the coil structures and circuit analysis of the wireless power transfer system will be introduced.  Furthermore, the advanced topics on power and efficiency analysis, coil design optimization, coil modeling with existing permanent magnets, and thermal analysis will be presented.
