Abstract

In this article, a 15-W quadruple-mode reconfigurable wireless power-receiving unit with high efficiency for Inductive coupling and magnetic resonance-based standards, such as wireless power consortium (WPC), power matters alliance (PMA), alliance for wireless power (A4WP), and magnetic secure transmission (MST) applications is proposed. Quadruple-mode gate controller(QMGC) is proposed in quadruple-mode synchronous rectifier to manage sizes of core and drivers which results in maximum power conversion efficiency (PCE) for each mode based on conduction and switching losses. In QMGC, switchable zero voltage and current sensing block is proposed for WPC/PMA to maximize PCE regardless of load current variations. For A4WP mode, a digitally controlled delay adjustment block is adapted to minimize power consumption while compensating for delay which results in reverse leakage current and power loss. Finally, for MST mode, low power TX (LPTX) block is implemented to minimize current consumption so that burden on battery can be minimized. A high-resolution current sensor is proposed in low-drop out regulator to sense current for overcurrent limit and overcurrent protection. The measured PCE of proposed system at 15 W are 95.3% and 92.3% for WPC/PMA and A4WP mode, respectively. For MST, power consumption is reduced to 35% courtesy LPTX block.
