Series-series (SS) topology and series-parallel (SP) topology of the electric-field coupling wireless power transfer system are widely utilised for practical applications. However, selecting the appropriate circuit topology, which maximise the output power by design optimisation, is often difficult, because these circuit topologies are generally analysed using different circuit models. This difficulty by analysing novel equivalent circuits for SS and SP topologies is addressed. As a result, the output power of SP topology is found to be approximated by that in SS topology with transformed load impedance. This result can offer a simple strategy for topology selection as well as design optimisation.
