In general, for the WPT (Wireless Power Transfer) system, as the mutual inductance and load resistance are calculated according to the measured data of both the transmitter and receiver, the wireless communication modules are needed to share data. A method for estimating mutual inductance and load resistance without wireless communication is proposed, based on the fundamental and third harmonic components. The circuit is decomposed with respect to the frequencies, by which the mathematic model

The experimental WPT system with a SiC power MOSFET is designed, and the effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by the simulation and experiment results. Additional hardware and frequency scanning operation are not needed because of the use of the harmonic components.
