Wireless power transfer (WPT) is a technology used to transmit power using air as it medium of transfer. The function of the WPT is similar to a transformer. The power provided on the primary side will be transferred through air to the secondary side. The performance of the WPT is crucially depends on the air gap length, 𝛿 that separates primary and secondary side. In this paper discusses the performance of WPT using series-to-series topology. The performance of the WPT was estimated using finite element analysis (FEA). During the study, focus was given to effect of turn ratio, a, air gap length, 𝛿 and capacitor value at primary Cp, and secondary, Cs winding to voltage ratio of the WPT. The air gap length, 𝛿 was set to 1 and 2 mm while the capacitors were set depend on the ratio of primary to secondary winding capacitor, Cp/Cs. The WPT performance also being tested under no-load and loaded operation to observed it effect. As a result, the WPT with turn ratio, a at 0.37, air gap length, 𝛿 at 1 mm and ratio of primary to secondary winding capacitor, Cp/Cs at 0.5 produce the best voltage ratio compared to other settings.
