Abstract A transmitting coil with an optimal topology and number of turns can effectively improve the performance of the wireless power transfer (WPT) systems for endoscope robots. This study proposes the evaluation parameters of the transmitting coils related to the performance of the WPT system to standardize the design of the transmitting coils. It considers both the quality factor of transmitting coils and the coupling factor between the two sides. Furthermore, an analytical model of transmitting coils with different topologies is built to exactly estimate the evaluation parameters. Several coils with the specified topologies are wound to verify the analytical model and the feasibility of evaluation parameters. In the case of a constant power received, the related evaluation parameters are proportional to the transfer efficiency of the WPT system. Therefore, the applicable frequency ranges of transmitting coils with different topologies are determined theoretically. Then a transmitting coil with a diameter of 69 cm is re-optimized both theoretically and experimentally. The transfer efficiency of the WPT system is increased from 3.58% to 7.37% with the maximum magnetic field intensity permitted by human tissue. Finally, the standardized design of the transmitting coil is achieved by summing-up and facilitating the optimization of the coils in various situations.
