Laboratory, include a three-phase system that features rotating magnetic
fields between layers of coils. The layered coils transfer power in a more
uniform way, allowing for an increase in power density. Credit: Jason

Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers created and tested new wireless
charging designs that may double the power density, resulting in a lighter
weight system compared with existing technologies, while maintaining safety.
The hands-free method includes a set of two charging coils—one to be affixed
underneath an electric vehicle and the other at ground level. When the coils
are aligned, the power transferred charges the vehicle’s battery. The team’s
designs, described in a recent study, include a three-phase system that
features rotating magnetic fields between layers of coils.
