Project Overview

The static inductive charging of electric vehicles is slowly starting to spread in the domestic garages and on some models of electric buses.

Inductive charging is a wireless charging technology that will be widely used with electric vehicles (EVs) in the near future. This offers many advantages over traditionally fuelled and current EVs such as charging whilst in motion, smaller batteries, high autonomy, and high-efficiency power transmission, all leading to the reduction of CO2 and fossil fuel consumption.

This project aims to advance inductive power transfer (IPT) for EV charging by developing metrological techniques for measuring IPT efficiency and reliable demonstration of compliance with existing safety standards for human exposure.
