I would like to know if a a inductively coupled power transfer system also emits electromagnetiv waves. The system contains of two inductance coils one generating the magnetic field with AC, the other picking up the magnetic energy and transforms it into an AC, also. The current frequency is above 100 kHz. In my oppinion, the self inductance of the coils do emit electromagnetic waves, but i have read that only an open oscillating circuit by meaning of a straight antenna emits electromagnetic waves. Does anyone knows can help me out here?
