Wirelss Power Transfer (WPT)

Due to the diversity of battery types and capacities, wireless power transfer (WPT) systems for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) have large variations in charging voltages and currents. Conventional solutions of using DC/DC converters to adapt to different specifications may cause increased cost and volumeand reduced overall efficiency. To address this issue, this video presents a new AUV WPT system with DC-link series/parallel AC-link parallel rectifiers for different charging voltages and currents
