USA: High speed wireless charging for electric cars research by ORNL and Evatran

Wireless electric car charging is expected to simplify electric car ownership, and a research project between the ORNL and Evatran aims to test wireless charging over the next three years.

Wirelessly charging electric cars could take a big step forward thanks to a project between Evatran and the Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL). Evatran announced on Monday having been awarded a subcontract under ORNL’s DOE Project, “Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) and Charging of Plug-In Electric Vehicles.” The project covers integration of high powered wireless charging into electric car models that are currently on the market.

Evatran, a sub-contractor to ORNL’s project, has been developing wireless electric car technology for several years. Their implementation has a unit on the ground which acts as a power transmitter, and another unit mounted in the car to receive electricity. Charging an electric car is as simple as parking the car over the top of the transmitter pad.
