Abstract:This report discusses and analyzes the feasibility and constraints of developing a wireless charging system to charge a 75 Watt drone. The aim of this report is to design and test the design of a wireless charging system aimed to charge medical supply delivery drones. The entire circuit works on the principle of resonant inductive coupling, and the coupling factor that the system was designed for is 0.2. The class E amplifier circuit is discussed along with the receiver circuit placed on the drone and the coils in those circuits that transmit the power through resonant inductive coupling. The models used to better understand the performance of the system are displayed along with a sensitivity analysis which help in understanding the systems performance for key parameter changes. Ultimately, the system was able to deliver 90 Watts of power at an efficiency of 60% with a Gallium Nitride MOSFET.
