Optimization of Wireless Power Transfer System for Implantable Biomedical Devices Using Firefly Method

Authors(2) :-Karan Kamboj, Neha Gupta

The paper presents analysis of the transferred power of an inductive link circuit with different network configurations of capacitors connected to primary and secondary coils. The performance for both objective functions is observed using four capacitor, two capacitors connected to the input coil and two capacitors connected to the output coil. However, the output in this circuit configuration for both efficiency and output power are very complex and a numerical method is applied to calculate the capacitors values. Since an in-depth search would be long therefore, some simplifications is assumed to reduce the search space and the time. Therefore, an algorithm based on a optimizer method is developed and successfully applied. The results for both efficiency and output power of four capacitors configuration are compared with other approaches, such as the single and two capacitors compensation. Finally, a basic prototype is built and the theoretical results are validated. Both simulated and experimental results of the four capacitor configuration showed a significant improvement on the efficiency and output power of the inductive link.
