dc.description.abstract This paper investigates the performance of Class E inverters used in wireless power transfer applications based on resonant inductive coupling. The variations in the load and the distance between the coils cause Class E inverters to operate in non-optimal switching conditions, which result in inefficient operation and can lead to permanent damage to its switching transistor. Therefore, a novel approach to tune Class E inverters electronically is proposed. The tuning method relies on saturable reactors to ensure that the inverter operates at optimal switching conditions regardless of variations in the load and the distance between the coils. In addition, a more accurate model of inductive links is presented in order to provide a better understanding of the major power losses in resonant inductive links. Experimental results are presented to confirm the improved accuracy of the inductive link model and the validity of the tuning method. en_UK
