This paper deals with the electric and magnetic field (EMF) safety aspects of a wireless power transfer (WPT) system based on magnetic resonant coupling between two coils. The primary coil is assumed to be on-body, while the secondary coil is assumed to be inside the human body and connected to a battery recharge system of an active implantable medical device such as a pacemaker. This study allows us to identify a good preliminary solution of the WPT coil configuration, compensation capacitor topology, and operational frequency. Demonstrative WPT systems operating at two different frequencies are proposed in order to verify the WPT performances. The EMF safety has been finally assessed by numerical dosimetry studies using anatomically realistic human body models revealing no particular concerns about this application.
