Worldwide markets are poised to achieve significant growth as wireless car charging pads permit users to charge the electric auto without disconnecting/reconnecting cables. Electrical vehicle charging can be done anywhere just by driving the car over the charger and positioning it correctly to pick up the current.

Wireless charging in the automotive industry brings inductive power for EV cars. Short distance power transmission is based on magnetic induction. With this technology, power is transferred when the receiver is close to the transmitter. Magnetic induction has been used for decades in electronic equipment. It is good because it is simple, efficient, and safe. It is now being applied to charging for electric vehicles.

As power is induced through the primary charging coil, a magnetic field is produced. The magnetic field is received by the secondary coil. It is converted back into a voltage. Shielding can be added to either coil of the transformer system. The aim is to direct the field effects. This can be useful in multiple pad charging applications. The aim is to eliminate power cross-talk. Wireless inductive charging is gaining popularity for use in consumer rechargeable applications such as cordless power tools, net books, note books and other power-hungry rechargeable devices.

Market driving forces relate primarily to the need for efficient power generation for autos. Wireless car charger manufacturers are positioning car models with wireless charging to drive demand at the high end. Many electric vehicle car vendors are making wireless power a reality. Only two vehicles are supported now, the Chevy Volt and the Nissan Leaf.

Wireless power is an emerging technology that creates a better charging experience for consumers. Just as Wi-Fi replaced the need to use an Ethernet cable for Internet connectivity, so also wireless power is making recharging wirelessly a feature that is demanded by consumers with an electric vehicle.

According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the team that prepared the study, wireless car charging represents the major force impacting electrical charging. Car vendors are coming together to create standards and to leverage standards to gain competitive advantage with highly differentiated product sets.
