Our project is a wireless power transfer system that provides a platform for future electric vehicle charging systems. The system uses inductive coupling to transfer power across a transmitting and receiving coil that is separated by an air gap. The transmitting coil is powered by a DC/AC converter with a user adjustable frequency that determines the system's output power. The receiving coil produces a proportional AC current which is then rectified and can be applied to a load or charging system. In addition, a graphical display shows the power that has been transferred wirelessly through a display load and includes a software GUI (Graphical User Interface) that allows a user to control the power system and display the input power level.
