In recent years with the rapid development of the electrical vehicle (EV) of new energy industry, higher requirements are put forward for convenience, safety and reliability of the charging of electric vehicles. Contactless Power Transfer (CPT) systems are applicable for charging electric vehicles (EVs) without any physical interconnection. These systems can be installed on roadways in order to charge the vehicles while driving. The implementation of such on-road charging systems in order to extend the driving range and decrease the EV battery size is investigated in this paper. The percentage of road that should be covered and the power transfer capability of the system are estimated. Some design considerations, such as the distribution and the length of the CPT segments over the road, are explained. Finally, the total power demand for all the passing-by vehicles using the system is calculated and the possibility of powering the EVs directly from renewable energy sources is discussed.
