Description

Wireless power transmission apparatus and method, and repeater

The present invention relates to a wireless power transmission apparatus and method, and a repeater, and more particularly, to a magnetic field resonance type wireless power transmission apparatus and method, and a repeater.

In recent years, wireless power transmission devices, in particular, magnetic resonance type wireless power transmission devices have been put into practical use.
An example of this type of wireless power transmission apparatus is described in Patent Document 1 (Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2011-29799). In the non-contact power supply communication device and the non-contact power receiving communication device of Patent Document 1, the resonance frequency of the resonance element of the supply source on the power transmission side and the resonance element of the supply destination on the power reception side are the same. Thereby, the power transmission efficiency is improved.

However, this power transmission efficiency varies depending on the distance between the power transmitter and the power receiver. In particular, in a so-called tightly coupled state where the resonance frequency is split, the power transmission efficiency is reduced or zero.

Patent Document 2 (Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2010-239847) describes a technique for solving such a problem. In the technique described in Patent Document 2, this tightly coupled state is avoided by detecting the split resonance frequency peak and switching the power transmission frequency to the peak.

Patent Document 3 (Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2010-200563) describes a technique of having a plurality of power transmitters and switching the power transmitters with switches.

Further, Patent Document 4 (Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 2010-183812) describes a technique that does not use frequency or power transmitter switching by superimposing a plurality of frequencies for power transmission.

(First embodiment)
FIG. 1 is a configuration diagram showing a configuration of a wireless power transmission device 1 according to an embodiment of the present invention.
A wireless power transmission device 1 according to an embodiment of the present invention includes a first power transmission unit (power transmitter 100) that transmits power by magnetic field resonance, and second power that receives power transmitted from the power transmitter 100. And at least one of the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 (the power transmitter 100 in FIG. 1) and the other power transmission unit (the power receiver in FIG. 1). 150), a plurality of resonance elements (first power transmission coil, second power transmission coil,..., N power transmission coil, n is 1). 1, a plurality of resonances having a first power transmission coil 110 and a second power transmission coil 120, and involved in power transmission according to the coupling state between the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150. Element (for the first power transmission in FIG. 1) Yl 110 and the second power transmission coil 120) is switched.

In one power transmission unit (power transmitter 100 in FIG. 1), at least one first resonant element (first power transmission coil 110 in FIG. 1) among the plurality of resonant elements is connected to the other power transmission unit (FIG. 1). 1 has the same resonance frequency as that of the power receiver 150), and at least one other second resonance element (second transmission coil 120 in FIG. 1) of the plurality of resonance elements is connected to the other power transmission unit. In a tightly coupled state with (the power receiver 150 in FIG. 1), any one of the resonance frequencies split into two or more has the same frequency as the resonance frequency of the other power transmission unit (the power receiver 150 in FIG. 1). .

As described above, in the wireless power transmission device of the present invention, one of the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 functions as a switching unit, and two or more resonances having different transmission efficiencies depending on the coupling state. In this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 1, the case where the power transmitter 100 includes two resonant elements that function as switching means will be described as an example. A configuration in which a power receiver or other power transmission device, for example, a repeater or the like has a plurality of resonance elements that function as switching means of the present invention will be described later.

That is, as shown in FIG. 1, the wireless power transmission device 1 of the present embodiment includes a power transmitter 100 that transmits power to the power receiver 150 by magnetic field resonance, and the power transmitter 100 has a resonance for power transmission having different resonance frequencies. The power transmission device 100 includes elements (first power transmission coil 110 and second power transmission coil 120), and at least one power transmission resonance element (first power transmission coil 110) of the power transmitter 100 has the same resonance frequency as the power receiver 150. At least one other power transmission resonance element (second power transmission coil 120) of the power transmitter 100 receives one of the resonance frequencies split into two or more in a tightly coupled state with the power receiver 150. It has the same frequency as the resonance frequency of the electric appliance 150.

Specifically, as shown in FIG. 1, the wireless power transmission device 1 according to the embodiment of the present invention includes a power transmitter 100 and a power receiver 150. In FIG. 1, the configuration of parts not related to the essence of the present invention is omitted and is not shown.

The power transmitter 100 is a device that transmits power wirelessly by magnetic field resonance. The power receiver 150 is a device that wirelessly receives power from the power transmitter 100 by magnetic field resonance. The power transmitter 100 includes a power supply source 102, a power distributor 104, a first power transmission coil 110, and a second power transmission coil 120.

The first power transmission coil 110 includes a primary coil 112 and a secondary coil 114. Second power transmission coil 120 includes a primary coil 122 and a secondary coil 124. Each power transmission coil stores magnetic energy and serves to form an electromagnetic field in the vicinity of the power transmission coil. As shown in FIG. 2, the resonance frequency of the power receiver 150 (FIG. 2 (a)) and the first power transmission coil 110 (FIG. 2 (b)) is the same frequency (f1), and the second power transmission coil The resonance frequency of 120 (FIG. 2C) is different from that of the first power transmission coil 110 (FIG. 2B).

Further, as shown in FIG. 4B, the second power transmission coil 120 has a frequency (f2) on the low frequency side of the resonance frequency (f2, f3) split into two in a tightly coupled state with the power receiver 150. Is a coil having the same resonance frequency (f1).

The power supply source 102 serves to generate power and supply the power to the power distributor 104.
The power distributor 104 is electrically connected to the primary coil 112 of the first power transmission coil 110 and the primary coil 122 of the second power transmission coil 120, respectively. The power distributor 104 distributes the power supplied from the power supply source 102 to the primary coil 112 of the first power transmission coil 110 and the primary coil 122 of the second power transmission coil 120, and the first power transmission coil. The primary coil 112 of 110 and the primary coil 122 of the second power transmission coil 120 have a function of isolating.

In the present embodiment, the first power transmission coil 110 and the second power transmission coil 120 are composed of two coils, a primary coil and a secondary coil. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and each includes only a single coil. It may be comprised.

Although the kind of each coil is not specifically limited, The primary coil 112 and the primary coil 122 can be made into a circular loop coil, for example. Further, the secondary coil 114 and the secondary coil 124 can be, for example, helical coils having a shape obtained by winding a predetermined number of conductor wires into a cylindrical shape.
Further, the first power transmission coil 110 and the second power transmission coil 120 may be configured by a linear conductor, a curved conductor, or a conductor composed of a straight line and a curved line.
Furthermore, the first power transmission coil 110 and the second power transmission coil 120 may be configured with an inductor and a capacitor.

As described above, the second power transmission coil 120 has a resonance frequency (f2, f3) (FIG. 4 (b)) that is split into two in a tightly coupled state with the power receiver 150 so that the frequency (f3) on the high frequency side is the same. A coil having the same resonance frequency (f1) may be used.

The split resonance frequency may be split into two or more as shown in FIG. 6 (b).

Moreover, although this embodiment is configured to include two power transmission coils, it may include three or more power transmission coils. For example, a third power transmission coil (not shown) may be further provided in addition to the first power transmission coil 110 and the second power transmission coil 120. In the third power transmission coil, for example, in a tightly coupled state with another power receiver having a resonance frequency different from that of the power receiver 150 or a repeater, any one of the resonance frequencies split into two or more is received by the other power receiving coil. You may have the same frequency as the resonance frequency of an electric appliance or a repeater.

In other words, when the power transmitter 100 moves and becomes unable to maintain the coupling due to magnetic field resonance with the power receiver 150, it is in a tightly coupled state due to magnetic field resonance with other power receivers or repeaters provided at different positions. In this case, it becomes possible to supply power to other power receivers or repeaters. Note that the state in which the coupling due to magnetic field resonance cannot be maintained is, for example, when the distance between the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 is large and the electromagnetic field formed by the power transmission coil of the power transmitter 100 does not reach the power receiver 150 or A case where the central axis of the coil cylinder does not face the power receiver 150 is assumed.

In the present embodiment, the case where the resonance frequency of the first power transmission coil 110 and the resonance frequency of the power receiver 150 are the same has been described. However, the resonance frequency of the first power transmission coil 110 is different from the resonance frequency of the power receiver 150, and instead In addition, the resonance frequency determined by the first power transmission coil 110 and the second power transmission coil 120, that is, the resonance frequency determined by the combination of the plurality of power transmission coils constituting the power transmitter 100, and the resonance frequency of the power receiver 150 are the same. There may be.

In addition, the number of the plurality of resonance elements of one power transmission unit (the power transmitter 100 in FIG. 1) and the resonance frequency of each resonance element are the power transmission efficiency required between the apparatuses that transmit power to each other, the apparatus The distance between the devices, the amount of change in the distance between devices, the speed, and the like can be appropriately selected and applied according to conditions.
The power distributor 104 may be configured by a Wilkinson power distributor or the like.

In the present embodiment, the power transmitter 100 of the wireless power transmission apparatus 1 uses only coils that are passive circuits as the first power transmission coil 110 and the second power transmission coil 120, and is an active circuit composed of transistors, diodes, and the like. Is not newly added.

In the present invention, it is assumed that the distance between the power transmitter and the power receiver changes. For example, at least one of the power transmitter and the power receiver may include a moving means (not shown), and may be included in a mobile device such as a movable robot, an automobile, and an elevator. Alternatively, at least one of the power transmitter and the power receiver may be included in a portable device such as a portable terminal.

Although the configuration of the present embodiment has been described in detail above, the configuration of the power transmitter 100 other than the power transmission coil and the power receiver 150 are well known to those skilled in the art and are directly related to the essence of the present invention. Therefore, description of these detailed configurations is omitted.

The operation of the wireless power transmission device 1 of the present embodiment configured as described above will be described below. 3 to 6 are diagrams for explaining the operation of the wireless power transmission device 1 of the present embodiment.
In the wireless power transmission method of the present invention, wireless power is transmitted between the first power transmission device (the power transmitter 100 in FIG. 1) and the second power transmission device (the power receiver 150 in FIG. 1) by magnetic field resonance. In the transmission method, one of the power transmission device 100 (power transmission device 100 in FIG. 1) of the power transmission device 100 and the power reception device 150 includes a plurality of resonance elements (first power transmission coil 110 in FIG. 1). 1 and the second power transmission coil 120), and in one power transmission device (the power transmitter 100 in FIG. 1), at least one of the plurality of resonance elements (the first power transmission coil 110 in FIG. 1). ) Has the same resonance frequency as the resonance frequency of one power transmission device (power transmitter 100 in FIG. 1) and the other power transmission device (power receiver 150 in FIG. 1) that transmits power. Other small At least one second resonance element (second power transmission coil 120 in FIG. 1) is one of resonance frequencies split into two or more in a tightly coupled state with the other power transmission device (power receiver 150 in FIG. 1). When one has the same frequency as the resonance frequency of the other power transmission device (the power receiver 150 in FIG. 1) and the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 are in a loosely coupled state, one power transmission device (the power transmission device) Electric power is transmitted between the first resonance element (first power transmission coil 110) of the electrical device 100) and the other power transmission device (power receiving device 150), and the distance between the power transmitting device 100 and the power receiving device 150 is close-coupled. In this case, power is transmitted between the second resonance element (second power transmission coil 120) of one power transmission device (power transmitter 100) and the other power transmission device (power receiver 150).

That is, the wireless power transmission method of the present invention has the same resonance frequency as the resonance frequency of the other power transmission device (power receiver 150) when the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 are in a loosely coupled state. The first resonance element (first power transmission coil 110) of the power transmission device (power transmitter 100) is coupled to the other power transmission device (power receiver 150) by magnetic field resonance, and one power transmission device is connected from the power supply source. The power supplied to (power transmitter 100) is transmitted from one power transmission device (power transmitter 100) to the other power transmission device (power receiver 150).
On the other hand, in a tightly coupled state where the distance between the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 is close, any one of the resonance frequencies split into two or more in the tightly coupled state with the other power transmission device (the power receiver 150) is the other. The second resonance element (second power transmission coil 120) of one power transmission device (power transmitter 100) having the same frequency as the resonance frequency of the power transmission device (power receiver 150) is connected to the other power transmission device (power receiver). 150) and magnetic field resonance to couple the power supplied from the power supply source to one power transmission device (power transmitter 100), and from one power transmission device (power transmitter 100) to the other power transmission device (power receiver 150). ).

FIG. 5 is a diagram illustrating frequency characteristics of transmission efficiency when the distance between the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 is changed and the coupling state is intermediate between the loose coupling state and the tight coupling state.

In the present embodiment, in the loosely coupled state where the distance between the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 is large, the resonance frequency of the first power transmission coil 110 and the resonance frequency of the power receiver 150 are the same f1. As shown in FIG. 3A, power is fed between the first power transmission coil 110 and the power receiver 150 at the resonance frequency f1. On the other hand, at this time, since the resonance frequency of the second power transmission coil 120 is not f1, the second power transmission coil 120 does not operate as shown in FIG.

Further, in a tightly coupled state where the distance between the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 is close, as shown in FIG. 4B, one of the split resonance frequencies of the second power transmission coil 120 (in the figure). When f2) on the low frequency side becomes f1, power is fed between the second power transmission coil 120 and the power receiver 150 at the resonance frequency f1. On the other hand, at this time, the first power transmission coil 110 is in a tightly coupled state with the power receiver 150, and as shown in FIG. 4A, the resonance frequency is split from f1 and the resonance frequency is not f1, so that Never do.

Furthermore, in the coupling state intermediate between the loose coupling state and the tight coupling state when the distance between the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 is changed, as shown in FIGS. 5 (a) and 5 (b), Although the resonance frequencies of the first power transmission coil 110 and the second power transmission coil 120 both split, they do not completely split, so the resonance frequency f1 is between the first power transmission coil 110 and the power receiver 150, and the second Power is supplied between the power transmission coil 120 and the power receiver 150.

As described above, conceptual frequency characteristics are shown in FIGS. 3 to 5 in order to explain the operation. Therefore, for example, in FIGS. 4 and 5, the transmission efficiency is described as being split into two equivalently and symmetrically. However, the present invention is not limited to this. For example, FIG. 6A and FIG. As shown by 6 (b), it may be asymmetric, or it may be split into three or more.

As described above, the wireless power transmission device 1 according to the embodiment of the present invention includes a plurality of resonant elements having different transmission efficiencies depending on the coupling state, so that the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 can be connected. High wireless transmission efficiency can be obtained regardless of the distance between them. The reason is that the coupling state that changes depending on the distance between the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 is a resonant element (second power transmission coil 120) that can obtain high efficiency in the tightly coupled state, and high efficiency in the loosely coupled state. This is because the power transmitter 100 is mounted with the obtained resonance element (first power transmission coil 110).

Furthermore, according to the wireless power transmission device 1 according to the embodiment of the present invention, it is possible to obtain high wireless transmission efficiency at a low cost regardless of the distance between the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150. The reason is that, instead of newly adding an expensive active circuit composed of transistors, diodes, etc., a plurality of resonant elements having different transmission efficiencies depending on the coupling state are mixed and transmission is performed according to the coupling state. This is because it is possible to switch the resonance element engaged in the above.

Furthermore, according to the wireless power transmission device 1 according to the embodiment of the present invention, the distance and the positional relationship between the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 are constantly or rapidly changed with a compact configuration without using a switching circuit or the like. However, it is possible to obtain high wireless transmission efficiency by following the change in the distance and positional relationship. The reason is that it is configured using only a coil that is a passive circuit without using the peak detection of the resonance frequency and the switching mechanism after the detection.

For example, when the wireless power transmission device 1 according to the embodiment of the present invention is applied to a movable robot or the like with a built-in power receiver 150, the distance between the power transmitter 100 and the power receiver 150 is constant because the robot is constantly moving. Although the positional relationship is not fixed, electric power can be transmitted with high wireless transmission efficiency following the movement of the robot.

Further, in a tightly coupled state where the distance between the repeater 260 and the repeater 160 is close, one of the split resonance frequencies of the third relay coil 266 is the same as the resonance frequency of the repeater 160. Thus, power is fed between the third relay coil 266 and the repeater 160 at the resonance frequency. On the other hand, at this time, since the resonance frequency of the first relay coil 262 and the second relay coil 264 is different from the resonance frequency of the repeater 160, the first relay coil 262 and the second relay coil 264 operate.

Since the operation of the wireless power transmission device 6 of the present embodiment configured as described above is the same as that of the wireless power transmission device of the above-described embodiment, the description thereof is omitted.
In the present embodiment, since a plurality of repeaters are arranged, not only can the transmission distance be increased, but also the distance between the power transmitter and the repeater, the distance between the repeaters, or the repeater and Even if the distance between the power receivers changes, high efficiency can be obtained.

In this configuration, two repeaters having a plurality of coils are used, but the effect is not changed even if there are three or more repeaters.
In this configuration, the number of relay coils included in the repeater is three, but may be two or four or more.

As described above, according to the wireless power transmission device according to the embodiment of the present invention, the same effect as that of the above embodiment can be obtained, and further, a power transmitter and a power receiver, or a power transmitter and a relay, Alternatively, high wireless transmission efficiency can be obtained regardless of the distance between the repeater and the repeater. The reason is that a coil capable of obtaining high efficiency in a tightly coupled state and a coil capable of obtaining high efficiency in a loosely coupled state are mixedly mounted.

For example, in the above embodiment, for example, the power transmitter 100 in FIG. 1 or the power receiver 200 in FIG. 9 has two coils, but three or more coils can be used. For example, when the power receiver 200 of FIG. 9 includes moving means and receives power supply from a plurality of different power transmitters, the power receiver 200 further includes two or more power receivers in a tightly coupled state with other power transmitters. It is possible to further include a power receiving coil in which any one of the split resonance frequencies has the same frequency as the resonance frequency of the other power transmitter.

According to this configuration, the same effects as those of the above-described embodiment can be obtained, and power can be stably supplied from each power transmitter while the power receiver moves between the plurality of power transmitters. Alternatively, it is possible to stably supply power to each power receiver while the power transmitter moves between the plurality of power receivers.

Also, a configuration in which the power transmitter supplies power to a plurality of different power receivers can be considered. In that case, the power transmitter further includes a power receiving coil in which one of the resonance frequencies split into two or more has the same frequency as the resonance frequency of the other power transmitter in a tightly coupled state with the other power receiver. Can be provided. This configuration also provides the same effects as described above.
