It is well known that the efficiency of a wireless power transfer (WPT) system depends on the resistance of the transmitting and receiving coils, especially for the case of low frequency. Since the ac loss of high temperature superconductors (HTS) is much lower than that of conventional conductors, using high temperature superconductors for WPT system is a good way to increase power transfer efficiency. Here, several kinds of WPT experiments were designed and conducted by use of HTS and conventional conductor (copper) coils, respectively. The results are presented and analyzed. It is shown that the behavior of HTS WPT system is similar to that of a conventional WPT system, but the efficiency of WPT system is much higher by use of HTS coils and HTS coil is more suitable for being as a transmitting coil than as a receiving one.
