Wireless power transfer for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles has been developed to facilitate battery charging. In a wireless power transfer system, because the magnetic field leaks to the surroundings of the vehicle, it is important to evaluate the quantitative human exposure. The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection provides guidelines for human exposure assessment. In this study, we evaluate the magnetic field leakage under two parking configurations and current phase differences for two vehicles being simultaneously charged (3.7 kW at 85 kHz per vehicle). The results of the analysis show that the magnetic field leakage is lower than the reference level of the guidelines for all cases and that the leakage could be reduced by controlling the phase difference between the two wireless power transfer systems equally distributed from the single high-frequency power source for each parking configuration.
