Congratulations! Two papers are accepted by AEPC 2021.

AEPC will be held during June 9-12,2021, at Phoenix, Arizona. As The Premier Event in Applied Power Electronics, APEC focuses on the practical and applied aspects of the power electronics business.

Two papers from AEPCL are accepted by AEPC as below:

P.Zhao, K. Yue, Y. Jiang, Y. Liu and M. Fu, “Heat Distribution of IPT Receiver with Low-Voltage and High-Current Output”, IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC), Phoenix, Arizona, June 9-12, 2021.

Abstract: The inductive powertransfer has been widely applied for battery charging due to several benefits.However, with the increasing output power, the parasitic resistances of coilsand compensation components would cause the thermal issue on the receiver, especially for a low-voltage and high-current load. This paper is devoted toaddressing the thermal issue by properly selecting receiving-side compensation network. The design boundary is derived to guide the compensation selection.Finally, a prototype system with 9V/5.4A output is implemented as an example to verify the analysis.

G. Zheng, K. Zhao,H. Wang, J. Liang and M. Fu, “Reduced-Order Model for Inductive Power Transfer Systems”, IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition(APEC), Phoenix, Arizona, June 9-12, 2021.

Abstract: An accurate and simple small signal model is important for inductive power transfer (IPT) systems to evaluate the control performance. In the past years, the extended describing function (EDF) is powerful to address the modeling issue for resonant converter.However, the high-order resonant tank of IPT would lead to a complicated modelif EDF is directly applied. In order to simplify the model, this paper exploresa circuit-based method to reduce the order for both series and parallel resonant circuits. An example LCC-C compensated system is used to explain the concept. This general simplification can be extended for any other high-order IPT systems.
