Telemetry acquisition from rodents is important in biomedical research, where rodent behavior data is used to study disease models. Telemetry devices for such data acquisition require a long-term powering method. Wireless power transfer (WPT) via magnetic resonant coupling can provide continuous power to multiple small telemetric devices. Our loosely coupled WPT (LCWPT) system consists of a stationary primary coil and multiple freely moving secondary coils. Our previous LCWPT system was designed to transfer reasonable power to secondary coils at poor orientations but transfers excessively high amounts of power at favorable orientations. Reasonable power is needed for telemetry and radio electronics, but highly induced voltage on the secondary coil creates excess energy which must be dissipated by previous devices, and caused problems (localized heat damage and variations in component properties) leading to drift in operating frequency. To remedy these two problems, a novel scheme is proposed to automatically tune or detune the resonant frequency of the secondary circuit. Our closed-loop controlled tuning or detuning (CTD) approach can be used to prevent excessive power transfer by detuning, or to improve power transfer by tuning, depending on the need. Furthermore, this novel CTD scheme facilitates the use of multiple telemetric devices.
