This study deals with the optimization of a shielding structure composed by multiple active coils for mitigating the magnetic field in an automotive wireless power transfer (WPT) system at 85 kHz. Each active coil is independently powered and the most suitable excitation is obtained by an optimization procedure based on the Gradient Descent algorithm. The proposed procedure is described and applied to shield the magnetic field beside an electric vehicle (EV) equipped with SAE standard coils, during wireless charging. The obtained results show that the magnetic field in the most critical area is significantly reduced (i.e., approximately halved) with a very limited influence on the electrical performances (i.e., WPT efficiency decreases by less than 1 percentage point compared to the case without active shielding).
