Wireless power transfer (WPT) has been extensively studied from various aspects such as far field and near field, operating frequency, coil design, matched capacitance values, misaligned locations of transmitting and receiving coils, distance variance between them, target loads in the specific locations, environment, and operating conditions. This is due to the usefulness of WPT technology in many applications, including the revolutionary method of auto-recharging of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). This paper presents analytical modeling of a WPT-link with two orthogonal transmitting coils arranged to produce an omnidirectional magnetic field suitable for charging a moving rotating load, maximizing energy transfer without any feedback from the receiving end. To achieve a suitable 2D WPT simulation system, as well as an accurate control design, the mutual coupling values in terms of receiver angular rotation are simulated using Ansys software. Power transfer is maximized by using extremum seeking control (ESC), making use of the input power as an objective function with specific parameter values that represent the WPT model to obtain the results. The results shown are those of the input power transmitted by the transmitting-end coils to a load of an orbiting mobile UAV. Based on the simulation results, the controller can achieve maximum power transfer in 100 µs of duration when the speed of the UAV is close to 314 rad/s.
