The proposed regulation strategy consists in obtaining at the right time the correct information about the energy contained in the resonant tank. This information allows a stable operation of the switches and a higher efficiency of any Series Loaded Series Resonant (SLSR) power converter, especially when contactless energy transfer is concerned. The strategy is based on guaranteeing the correct portion of energy transported by the resonant tank to the load. The portion has to vary corresponding to the error signal taken from the output voltage and remains unchanged if the error signal is at its minimum. In a certain way this method is similar to the Current Mode Control of the classical power converters. The viability of the idea is demonstrated by simulation of a realistic analogue circuit (on preparation for a digital implementation in the near future).
