For example, the wireless power transmission device may be a mobile terminal, such as a mobile phone, a smart phone, a laptop computer, a digital broadcasting terminal, a personal digital assistant (PDA), a portable multimedia player (PMP), or a navigator. Also, the wireless power transmission device may include a wall mounted type television(TV), a lighting stand, an electronic picture frame, and a cleaner.

Now, exemplary embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

FIG. 1 is a view illustrating a wireless power transmission system using a transmission coil array according to an embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in FIG. 1, the wireless power transmission system according to the embodiment of the present invention includes a wireless power transmission device 100 and a wireless power receiving device 200. The wireless power transmission system transmits power from the wireless power transmission device 100 to the wireless power receiving device 200 in a magnetic resonance mode.

The wireless power transmission device 100 rectifies alternating current (AC) power input from an external input power supply into direct current (DC) power, converts high-frequency AC power (for example, 10V, 200kHz) through a DC-AC conversion circuit for wireless power transmission, and transmits the high-frequency AC power to the wireless power receiving device 200 via a power transmission antenna unit 110.

The wireless power receiving device 200 receives a power signal transmitted from the wireless power transmission device 100. To this end, the wireless power receiving device 200 may include a power receiving antenna unit 210.

In a case in which power is transmitted in a magnetic resonance mode, it is necessary for the power transmission antenna unit 110 and the power receiving antenna unit 210 to have the same or almost the same resonant frequency. In this case, an energy transmission channel based on resonant coupling is formed between the power transmission antenna unit 110 and the power receiving antenna unit 210. A power signal output from the power transmission antenna unit 110 is transmitted to the power receiving antenna unit 210 via the energy transmission channel. The power signal input to the wireless power receiving device 200 via the power receiving antenna unit 210 passes through a rectification circuit and a stabilization circuit in the wireless power receiving device 200 into usable power. The converted power is transmitted to a load device 300 connected to the wireless power receiving device 200 to charge the load device 300 or to provide driving power to the wireless power receiving device 200. Some of the power signal output from the power transmission antenna unit 110, which has not been absorbed by the power receiving antenna unit 210, may be reabsorbed by the power transmission antenna unit 110.

Hereinafter, the operations of the power transmission antenna unit 110 and the power receiving antenna unit 210 will be described in detail.

FIG. 2 is a view illustrating the operations of the power transmission antenna unit and the power receiving antenna unit of the wireless power transmission system according to the embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in FIG. 2, the wireless power transmission system according to the embodiment of the present invention transmits a power signal from the power transmission antenna unit 110 of the wireless power transmission device 100 to the power receiving antenna unit 210 of the wireless power receiving device 200 in a magnetic resonance mode. The power transmission antenna unit 110 and the power receiving antenna unit 210 have the same or almost the same resonant frequency, and therefore, power transmission from the power transmission antenna unit 110 to the power receiving antenna unit 210 is performed at optimum efficiency in a resonant state in which the power transmission antenna unit 110 and the power receiving antenna unit 210 are matched based on the resonant frequency.

The power transmission antenna unit 110 includes a power transmission antenna 112 and a transmission side resonant coil 114. The power receiving antenna unit 210 includes a power receiving antenna 212 and a receiving side resonant coil 214. The transmission side resonant coil 114 and the receiving side resonant coil 214 may be configured in a loop form. For example, the loop form may be a spiral loop or a helical loop.

Power may be transmitted from the power transmission antenna 112 to the transmission side resonant coil 114 in a magnetic induction mode. A power signal absorbed by the receiving side resonant coil 214 may be transmitted to the power receiving antenna 212 in a magnetic induction mode. An energy transmission channel based on mutual resonance at the same or almost the same resonant frequency is formed between the transmission side resonant coil 114 and the receiving side resonant coil 214. A power signal output from the transmission side resonant coil 114 is transmitted to the receiving side resonant coil 214 via the energy transmission channel according to magnetic resonance.

Hereinafter, the detailed constructions of the wireless power transmission device and the wireless power receiving device will be described.

FIG. 3 is a block diagram showing the detailed construction of a wireless power transmission device 100 according to an embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in FIG. 3, the wireless power transmission device 100 includes a power transmission antenna unit 110, a DC power converting unit 120, a power amplification unit 130, an impedance matching unit 140, and a power distribution unit 150.

The DC power converting unit 120 receives external AC power and rectifies the AC power into DC power. The power amplification unit 130 converts the rectified DC power into an AC type high-frequency power signal for power transmission. At this time, the converted high-frequency power may have a wavelength of 200 kHz, 1 MHz, 6.78 MHz, 13.56 MHz, 1.8 MHz, etc.

The high-frequency power signal may be modulated to contain data to be transmitted to the wireless power receiving device 200 by a modulation circuit (not shown). Also, the impedance matching unit 140 may perform impedance matching with respect to the power transmission antenna unit 110.

The power transmission antenna unit 110 may be configured to have a structure in which one or more antenna sets, each of which includes a power transmission antenna 112 and a transmission side resonant coil 114, are arranged. The power transmission antenna 112 receives a high-frequency power signal and transmits energy corresponding to the high-frequency power signal to the transmission side resonant coil 114. The power transmission antenna 112 may be spaced apart from the transmission side resonant coil 114 by the optimum distance for impedance matching. The transmission side resonant coil 114 receives the energy from the power transmission antenna 112 through magnetic induction and generates a non-radial electromagnetic wave through resonance.

Also, the power transmission antenna 112 may receive a portion of the high-frequency power signal through the power distribution unit 150, which will hereinafter be described, and transmit the received portion of the high-frequency power signal to the transmission side resonant coil 114.

The power distribution unit 150 transmits the input high-frequency power signal to the power transmission antenna 112. In a case in which a plurality of power transmission antennas 112 is provided, the power distribution unit 150 may distribute the input high-frequency power signal to the respective power transmission antennas 112. The detailed construction of the power distribution unit 150 and a method of distributing power to a plurality of power transmission antennas 112 will hereinafter be described in detail.

FIG. 4 is a block diagram showing the detailed construction of a wireless power receiving device 200 according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 4, the wireless power receiving device 200 includes a power receiving antenna unit 210, a rectification unit 220, a voltage control unit 230, and a charging unit 240.

The power receiving antenna unit 210 includes a power receiving antenna 212 and a receiving side resonant coil 214 (see FIG. 2). The receiving side resonant coil 214 receives a power signal output from the transmission side resonant coil 114 of the wireless power transmission device 100 in a wireless fashion.

The power signal received by the receiving side resonant coil 214 is transmitted to the power receiving antenna 212 through electromagnetic induction and is rectified into DC power by the rectification unit 220. Subsequently, the DC power passes through a filtering unit (not shown), by which a high-frequency noise component is removed from the DC power, and is converted into voltage that can be used in a load device by the voltage control unit 230.

The charging unit 240 transmits the power converted while passing through the above elements to a load device 300 to charge the load device 300.

Hereinafter, the operations of the power transmission antenna unit 110, which is configured to include a plurality of antenna sets, and the power distribution unit 150 of the wireless power transmission device 100 according to the embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail.

Referring to FIG. 5, the power transmission antenna unit 110 includes two antenna sets 111 and 115. The antenna set 111 includes a power transmission antenna 112 and a transmission side resonant coil 114. The antenna set 115 includes a power transmission antenna 116 and a transmission side resonant coil 118. The power transmission antenna unit 110 may include two or more antenna sets. For the convenience of description, however, a case in which the power transmission antenna unit 110 includes two antenna sets 111 and 115 will be described as an example.

The power distribution unit 150 distributes a power signal to the power transmission antennas 112 and 116. At this time, the size of the power signal distributed to the power transmission antenna 112 and the power transmission antenna 116 may be the same or almost the same. For example, the power distribution unit 150 may extract power equivalent to -3dB from the input power signal and distribute the extracted power to the power transmission antenna 116. For example, the power distribution unit 150 may be a hybrid coupler, a Wilkinson power divider, or another coupler performing a function equivalent thereto.

Meanwhile, the power distribution unit 150 may have a switching element provided therein. Under control of the switching element, the power distribution unit 150 may transmit the entirety of the power signal to one of the power transmission antennas 112 and 116(single coil power transmission mode) or distribute the power signal to the power transmission antennas 112 and 116 (multiple coil power transmission mode).

Also, the power distribution unit 150 may have a phase control circuit provided therein. The power distribution unit 150 may control phases of the power transmission antennas 112 and 116 connected to both output ends of the power distribution unit 150 using the phase control circuit. The phase control circuit may be a well-known circuit.

FIG. 6A shows a case in which the antenna set 111 and the antenna set 115 have the same phase (in-phase power transmission mode), and FIG. 6B shows a case in which the antenna set 111 and the antenna set 115 have different phases (phase difference power transmission mode).

In the in-phase power transmission mode, the phase of the power signal output from the power transmission antennas 112 and the phase of the power signal output from the power transmission antennas 116 are the same. In the phase difference power transmission mode, on the other hand, the difference between the phase of the power signal output from the power transmission antennas 112 and the phase of the power signal output from the power transmission antennas 116 may be 180 degrees.

In this case, power transmission efficiency in each mode is changed according to the relative deployment position between the receiving side resonant coil 214 of the wireless power receiving device 200 and the transmission side resonant coils 114 and 118 (i.e. an alignment angle θ of the receiving side resonant coil 214 with respect to the transmission side resonant coils 114 and 118).

In a case in which the power transmission antenna unit 110 includes a single transmission side resonant coil 114, and the power receiving antenna unit 210 has an arbitrary alignment angle θ as shown in FIG. 7A, as the alignment angle θ of the power receiving antenna unit 210 is increased, the efficiency of power transmission to the wireless power receiving device 200 is decreased as shown in FIG. 8A (single coil power transmission mode).

On the other hand, in a case in which the power transmission antenna unit 110 includes two transmission side resonant coils 114 and 118, and the power receiving antenna unit 210, spaced apart from the power transmission antenna unit 110 by a predetermined distance d, has an arbitrary alignment angle θ as shown in FIG. 7B, as the alignment angle θ of the power receiving antenna unit 210 is increased, the efficiency of power transmission to the wireless power receiving device 200 is decreased as shown in FIG. 8A in the in-phase power transmission mode. In the phase difference power transmission mode, however, as the alignment angle θ of the power receiving antenna unit 210 is increased, the efficiency of power transmission to the wireless power receiving device 200 is increased as shown in FIG. 8A.

Also, in a case in which the alignment angle θ of the power receiving antenna unit 210 is relatively small, the power transmission efficiency in the single coil power transmission mode may be higher than that in the in-phase power transmission mode. In a case in which the alignment angle θ of the power receiving antenna unit 210 is small, therefore, it is preferable to control the power distribution unit 150 so that the power transmission antenna unit 110 is operated in the single coil power transmission mode.

Meanwhile, in a case in which the power transmission antenna unit 110 includes two transmission side resonant coils 114 and 118, the two transmission side resonant coils 114 and 118 are preferably spaced apart from each other by a predetermined distance dc to prevent the occurrence of mutual coupling therebetween.

Meanwhile, as shown in FIG. 8B, the power transmission efficiency in the in-phase power transmission mode becomes lower than that in the 180 degrees phase difference power transmission mode at an alignment angle θ of approximately 60 degrees. For this reason, the power distribution unit 150 may be controlled so that the power transmission mode is switched from the in-phase power transmission mode to the phase difference power transmission mode at an alignment angle θ of approximately 60 degrees to somewhat compensate for reduction of the power transmission efficiency according to the alignment angle.

In the wireless power transmission device with the above-described structural elements according to the embodiment of the present invention, the power transmission antenna unit includes one or more antenna sets, and two or more power signals having different phases are transmitted to the wireless power receiving device via the power transmission antenna unit. Consequently, it is possible to somewhat compensate for reduction of the power transmission efficiency according to the alignment angle of the wireless power receiving device.

Various embodiments have been described in the best mode for carrying out the invention.

As is apparent from the above description, it is possible to transmit power using a transmission coil array including two or more transmission coils, thereby preventing lowering of power transmission efficiency depending upon the position of a receiving coil. Consequently, the present invention can be widely used in industries related to a device and system for wireless power transmission using a transmission coil array.

Although the preferred embodiments of the present invention have been disclosed for illustrative purposes, those skilled in the art will appreciate that various modifications, additions and substitutions are possible, without departing from the scope and spirit of the invention as disclosed in the accompanying claims.
