View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
In one implementation, an analytical approach to determining an improved and/or optimal design of a matching network in a capacitive or inductive WPT system is provided. In one implementation, for example, a framework is provided to enable stage(s) of the network to simultaneously provide gain and compensation. The multistage matching network efficiency can be improved and/or optimized, such as by using the method of Lagrange multipliers, resulting in the optimum distribution of gain and compensation among the L-section stages.
