IEEE's Power Electronics Society has been hosting Webinars nearly once a month as part of an ongoing series. These educational Webinars go into great depth about current issues in the developing projects of electrical engineers, such as methods of providing sustainable energy and the mathematical algorithms and calculations involved in making such energy sources work properly. Dr John Miller delivers a tutorial covering the essentials of magnetic resonance coupling and relevant aspects of WPT operation, an analytical approach to calculate the coupling coefficient of WPT, a control strategy based on grid-side power converter regulation, to optimize overall system performance, as well as modeling and simulation of WPT. He compares this information with the results of a recent experiment performed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Dr. John Miller is a seasoned member of the automotive industry, with 20 years of experience in the field of automotive engineering, research, and development under his belt. He is also an active contributor to his field, with over 170 papers published and five books out now, including Hybrid Vehicle Propulsion Systems.
Dr. John Miller presents this Webinar as part of a PELS Webinar series. He talks about Wireless Plug-In Vehicles, or PEVs, and explores the complicated physics and algorithms involved in how they are charged and how they save energy.
