Dynamic Charging of Electric Vehicles
An inductive power transfer (IPT) system is envisaged as the best solution to conveniently charge electric vehicles (EVs). While stationary IPT systems are becoming commercialized, significant research is being conducted to address the challenges related to dynamic IPT systems. Dynamic or in-motion IPT systems require a fully electrified roadway with embedded inductive couplers with accompanying circuitry. The large number of electronic components required, however, increases the system complexity, reducing the reliability and economic viability of dynamic IPT systems proposed to-date.
