Tx-Rx coils


Wireless power for mobile phones system overview

Tx-Rx coils – Magnetic induction basics

Electric current flowing in a wire gives rise to a magnetic field around it.

Alternating the current will alternate the magnetic field

Shaping the wire as a loop will band that field in a “lung” shape.

Tx-Rx coils – Magnetic induction basics

Energy coupling means that an energy source has a mean of transferring its energy to a second object. Transformers may use iron core to deliver the magnetic flux

Wireless power system is an air core transformer between planar coils one on top of the other.

Tx-Rx coils – Coil designs

Single coil– Most common design

Pros – chip and easy solution / Cons – difficult alignment

Large Tx coil – Common in loosely coupled systems

Pros – easy alignment / Cons – difficult design and tune

Array of small Tx coil – One or more coils provide power simultaneously

Pros – easy alignment / Cons – Cost of coils and drivers

3 coil array – Only one coil provides power at a time

Pros – easy alignment / Cons – Cost of coils and drivers

Resonancecircuit and power driver


Wireless power for mobile phones system overview

Resonancecircuit and power driver

Power driver

Resonance circuit

Resonant circuit - Determines the self resonance frequency of the Tx,

Mainly influenced by the coil and the resonance capacitors.

Power driver - pushes the current to the resonance circuit in different frequencies around the self resonance

Wireless power for mobile phones system overview

Resonancecircuit

  • The overall impedance the driver “sees” when modeled as a series RLC circuit

  • At the resonance frequency the capacitive and inductive impedance equals

  • The driver then sees resistive only minimum overall impedance and the power

  • delivery to the Rx is maximal

  • The resonance curve changes with each different :

    • Rx design (EE & ME)

    • Phone material

    • Misalignment from the center

    • Variation during manufacturing

    • Load drawn

Amplitude

Frequency

Wireless power for mobile phones system overview

Driving the power

  • Frequency control – the driver changes the frequency along the resonance curve

    • Control becomes difficult when Q is high & at resonance control is unstable

    • Frequency range shall be dynamic due to curve changes

    • Passing to the second side of the peak may reverse the control rules

Amplitude

Frequency

Other methods of control:

Voltage control – increasing the input voltage will increase the current through the coil and the transmitted power

Pulse width control – increasing the on time of the signal will increase the transmitted power

Data modulation

Data modulation

Power driver

Matching circuit & Rectifier

Modulator

  • load modulation -

  • Rx modulates the operational frequency by short circuiting the coil to a secondary load

  • The secondary load changes both the load of the Tx and the resonance curve

  • The demodulator sense the change in voltage, current or phase between them on the operational frequency

Demodulator
