This work presents the analysis of a wireless power transfer system consisting of two coupled coils and ferrite slabs acting as flux concentrators. The study makes use of Finite Element Method (FEM) simulations to predict the key performance indicators of the system such as coupling, quality factor and winding resistance. The simulations results were compared against experimental measurements on a prototype showing consistence.
