Power transfer by IPT questions

  1. Feb 22, 2006 #1
    I am using this circuit below to charge a AA battery at the receiver's output. i think it should at least have some readings but i was wrong. there was no results at all. is there something wrong in my design. i've took the basic circuit only(hadnt add the control devices).
    PS I am a noob at pspice, can any1 show me how to model the coupled inductors as IPT in the simulation?

    At first glance, it appears your Multisim simulation doesn't know that you're trying to induce a voltage into the secondary circuit.
    The first obvious place I would double check, is your Multisim program, to see if they have models for transformers, and replace your two inductors with it. Use a turns-ratio appropriate for the 2 inductances you've chosen.
