Magnetic coupling based Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) systems for charging no doubt have emerged as an eye catching alternative charging methodology in recent years. However, a rigorous assessment between magnetic coupling based traditional WPT system and magnetic resonant coupling based WPT system is essential in order to characterize and decide the best suited technology corresponding to their applicability. The effectiveness of both the technologies and their power transfer characteristics have been demonstrated in perception of consumed input power, delivered load power for different coupling coefficient over varying operating frequency and electric load condition. The theoretical and analytical study supported with the simulation and bench set up experiments have been carried out in order to disclose the viability of both the technologies in the device charging. In addition, an inclusive correlation between the performance parameters of the WPT systems is established through the analysis, and justification regarding the RIC-WPT system as an alternative viable solution in the charging field has been outlined.
