In this study, a solar powered wireless power transmission system is simulated with MATLAB/Simulink. Wireless power transmission systems are the process of transferring electrical energy from the transmitting system to the receiving system without any physical connection. Pulse density modulation technique is used to generate control pulses for Maximum Power Point Tracking for wireless power transmission system. While the drive system is operated under soft switching conditions, it is able to follow the maximum power point in photovoltaic panels with high accuracy.
