Event Details

Due to the exponential proliferation of mobile battery powered devices in the last 20 years – everything from tablets to electric vehicles – the need for wireless charging infrastructure has grown at a commensurate rate.  These chargers, typically operating as inductively coupled resonators at frequencies less than 30 MHz, do not easily comport with traditional EMC measurement requirements found in 47 Code of Federal regulations or ANSI C63.10.  To better align measurement standards with this emerging technology, the ANSI C63.30 Working Group was established in 2015, with team members from the Federal Communications Commission; Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada; and UL helping to lead the initiative.  Throughout this process, C63.30 has worked to ensure repeatable measurements can be made for these reactive near-field devices, that extrapolation techniques reflect the nuances associated with such field-measurements, and that procedures take into consideration complimentary standards, such as SAE J2954.  In totality, this standard represents one of the most comprehensive contributions to field measurement techniques below 30 MHz since publication of the FCC’s MP-5 and will help facilitate the adoption of technologies which will impact everything from pacemakers to electric VTOL aircraft.  The standard was approved by ASC C63 in March of 2021 and is pending final review and publication by the IEEE.This presentation will provide an overview of the methods for testing as described in C63.30 for closely coupled wireless power transfer devices.  We will review the current state of wireless power transfer applications, areas where regulations diverge from technology, and the ways in which ANSI C63.30 can address those divergences.
