In this paper, a metamaterial-coupled, highly efficient, miniaturized, and long-range wireless power transfer (WPT) system based on a cubic high-dielectric resonator (CHDR) is explored. The proposed WPT system consists of two CHDR metamaterials separated by a distance and excited by two rectangular coils. Initially, this WPT system is analyzed by considering the cube dielectric permittivity, ε,. = 1000, and loss tangent, tanδ = 0.00001. From the Ansoft HFSS simulation, it is observed that the system operates in the hybrid resonance mode resonating as a horizontal magnetic dipole providing more than 90% power transfer efficiency at a distance of 0.1λ. In addition, parametric studies regarding the transmitter and receiver sizes, loss tangent, receiver misorientation, cube periodicity, etc., are carried out. One of the significant findings of this parametric study reveals that the suggested WPT system is less sensitive to the displacement of the receiver coil, and the WPT efficiency due to misorientation of the receiver can be increased by changing the CHDR cube rotation. Due to inaccessibility of the very high ε,. = 1000, 18 microwave ceramic samples of EXXELIA TEMEX E5080 (Oxide composition: Ba Sm Ti), which has a permittivity, ε,. = 78, permeability, μ,. = 1, and a loss tangent, tanδ = 0.0004, was made for experimental verification. These cubes are surrounded by Teflon to make the CHDR resonators. From simulations and measurements, it is found that the proposed system outperforms the most recent high-dielectric or copper-based WPT systems in terms of efficiency, range, size, and specific absorption rate.
