A secondary coil design is reported for the stable transmission of wireless power in a misalignment situation. A coil array is applied to a secondary coil instead of typical single coil. When a misalignment occurs, the misalignment distance between an individual coil in the array and the primary coil is decreased relatively. Therefore, the sudden reduction in the inductive wireless power transmission (WPT) efficiency is mitigated. When the fabricated coil array transmits power, the maximum WPT efficiency improves by 56.45% compared with the typical single coil. The frequency band of the proposed array is wider, and this system can stably transmit power.
