A typical magnetic resonance coupling based wireless Electric Vehicle (EV) charging system consists of a transmitting coil at the charging station and a receiving coil in the vehicle. In order to maintain good energy transfer efficiency of the wireless charging system, the effect of the proximal metallic object in the vicinity of the receiving coil has been investigated. Both from the theoretical simulation and experimental measurement, it has been observed that the resonance based wireless energy transfer system is very sensitive to the nearby metallic objects, leading to significant deterioration in energy transfer efficiency. This effect on the energy transfer efficiency is also seen to be different for different physical spacing between the transmitting and receiving coils. It is also found that the operating resonant frequency for optimum energy transfer efficiency changes with the metallic object in close proximity to the receiving coil. The theoretically simulated results well agree with the experimental results. The analysis will provide future guidelines for designing an efficient resonance coupling based wireless charging system for EVs even in the presence of metallic objects.
