This paper presents the experimental validation, using the opposition method, of a high-power three-phase Wireless-Power-Transfer (WPT) system for automotive applications. The systemunder test consists of three coils with circular sector shape overlapped to minimize the mutualcross-coupling, a three-phase inverter at primary side and a three-phase rectifier at receiver side.In fact thanks to the delta configuration used to connect the coils of the electromagnetic structure,a three-phase Silicon Carbide (SiC) inverter is driving the transmitter side. The resonance tankcapacitors are placed outside of the delta configuration reducing in this way their voltage sizing. ThisWPT system is used as a 100 kW–85 kHz ultrafast battery charger for light delivery vehicle directlysupplied by the power grid of tramways. The adopted test-bench for the WPT charger consistsof adding circulating boost converter to the system under test to perform the opposition methodtechnique. The experimental results prove the effectiveness of the proposed structure together withthe validation of fully exploited simulation analysis. This is demonstrated by transferring 100 kWwith more than94Ü-to-DC efficiency over 50 mm air gap in aligned conditions. Furthermore,testing of Zero-Current and Zero-Voltage commutations are performed to test the performance of SiCtechnology employed.
