Infrastructure Issues Related to In-Motion Electric Wireless Power Transfer

This project fits within a larger initiative of developing and demonstrating In-Motion Wireless Power Transfer. From the Civil Infrastructure perspective the process can be divided into 3 parts. (1) Conceptual Design of several alternative in-pavement inductive coils. Within this effort includes structural modeling, thermo modeling, and electrical efficiency modeling regarding the strength, shape, and applicability of the magnetic field. (2) Construction and testing of several specimens under laboratory conditions. (3) Installation of prototype coils in the EV Select Test track for investigations of power transfer efficiency. (4) Future (not included in this project) installation in actual pavement on a test section of pavement.
