The current flows through the spark gap into the secondary coil.
The primary resistance converts the power to heat, and the power is transferred into the secondary coil through their mutual inductance (M).
In order to facilitate the park-and-charge (PAC) process for the BEV, the IPT technology is extended to be plugless, in which the primary coil is installed on the floor of a garage or in a parking lot and the secondary coil is installed on the vehicle as shown in Fig.
The operational principle of the Inductive Power Transfer Module (IPTM) resembles to the one of transformers; transferring energy from a primary to a secondary coil (usually referred to as "pick-up coil") which are not physically connected as it is presented in [2].
To obtain a multiphase output from transformer connections, the general idea of the solutions mentioned below is to have three separate cores, each consisting of one primary coil and more than one secondary coil. The secondary coils have the different number of turns and are connected in specific ways so as to produce the desired phase shift of 72 degrees between two adjacent phases.
The system is comprised of two parts, a secondary coil in the vehicle floor and a base plate with integrated primary coil.
10, we show the secondary coil voltage and primary coil current traces for all the measured conditions.
It's achieved by fitting a primary coil in a floor-plate over which a car can park and a secondary coil on the underside of the car itself.
With such transformer, when a DC current is forced through the secondary coil, an additional DC magnetic field is injected in the transformer core.
where [u.sub.AS], [u.sub.BS], and [u.sub.CS] are the pick-up voltages of the secondary coil induced from three primary coils.
