This paper presents an analysis and optimal position alignments of the transmitting and receiving couplers for achieving interoperability between a three-phase and a single-phase inductive wireless power transfer (WPT) system. In addition, single-phase operation modes for the six-switch three-phase inverter are identified for maximal power transfer from the three-phase transmitter pad to the single-phase receiver pad. Simulation results are included to show the power transfer capability between a 50 kW three-phase and an 11 kW double-D or circular single-phase WPT system at various alignment positions of the couplers.
