Patents by Inventor Angel J. Carvajal

Angel J. Carvajal has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20210328462
    Abstract: A transformer system is provided that includes an ensemble of four magnetically coupled coils having fixed spacing geometry. The ensemble of four magnetically coupled coils includes a load coil, a primary resonant coil, a drive coil and a secondary resonant coil. All coils are coupled in the transformer system, but the first resonant coil is highly coupled with the drive coil so that the resonant coil can receive energy from the drive coil and the second resonant coil is highly coupled to the load coil so that the load coil can extract energy efficiently from the second resonant coil. Additionally, the primary resonant coil may be at least partially nested coaxially inside the drive coil and/or the secondary resonant coil may be at least partially nested coaxially inside the load coil.

  • Patent number: 10951064
    Abstract: A transformer system is provided that includes four magnetically coupled coils having fixed spacing geometry. The four magnetically coupled coils include a drive coil that produces magnetic fields and a load coil. A first resonant coil is magnetically coupled to the drive coil producing energy that is stored by the first resonant coil. A second resonant coil is magnetically coupled to the first resonant coil to propagate the energy stored in the first resonant coil to the second resonant coil without using a magnetic core. The second resonant coil is then magnetically coupled to the load coil where the energy is transferred to the load coil.
