Abstract(in English) To improve the transmission efficiency at blind spots caused by standing waves in a cavity, a novel cavity resonant wireless power transfer that utilizes the diversity effect of dual parasitic antennas is proposed in this report. In the proposed method, the reflection characteristics for arbitrary load conditions can be predicted by estimating the S-parameters between the antennas online from the fluctuation of the reflected signal observed at the transmitting antenna during load modulation of dual parasitic antennas. Then, based on the principle of ``transmission maximization via reflection minimization'' established in an electromagnetically shielded space, the load condition that maximizes transmission efficiency can be indirectly identified by searching for the minimum point of the predicted reflection response surface. In an experiment conducted in a 200-mm metal cavity, the transmission efficiency was improved by up to 14.4 times compared with the case of using a single parasitic antenna, and spatial uniformity with a transmission efficiency of approximately 50% or more at most measurement points, was achieved by the proposed method.
