Title: SYSTEM FOR CONTACTLESS POWER TRANSFER AND A METHOD FOR OPERATING THE SAME
Abstract:
A system 10 for contactless power transfer is disclosed. The system 10 includes a first power exchanging element 22 configured to be operatively coupled to a conductor 12 at a first location 26 of the conductor 12, using an electromagnetic field generated between the first power exchanging element 22 and the conductor 12 at an operating frequency of at least two kilohertz. The system also includes a second power exchanging element 30 configured to be operatively coupled to the conductor 12 at a second location 32 of the conductor 12, using the electromagnetic field generated between the first power exchanging element 22 and the conductor 12 at the operating frequency. The electromagnetic field is used to transmit power from the first power exchanging element 22 to the second power exchanging element 30.
