Quasi-static Torque Profile Expressions for Magnetic Resonance Based Remote Actuation
Journal Contribution - Journal Article
Resonant wireless power transfer has been employed to transfer electrical power from a transmitter to a receiver coil over an air gap and to remotely charge consumer devices. In this paper, the receiver coil is replaced by a stator-rotor topology, enabling magnetic resonance based motoring over substantial air gaps. The principles of resonant wireless power transfer are used to induce currents in a strongly coupled magnetic resonance system. This results in its turn in torque, which is applied on the rotor body, allowing for remote actuation. We propose a voltage or current controlled magnetic resonance motoring topology, for which we derive expressions for the generated torque depending on the rotor angle. Furthermore, torque profile expressions are derived for motoring systems with multiple stator and/or rotor coils. Finally, an experimental setup is built to validate the obtained torque expressions. Using the validated expressions, we present a sensitivity analysis of the key system parameters with respect to the torque profile. The presented torque profile expressions enable further topology exploration and optimization of magnetic resonance based motoring systems.
