This brief proposes a design methodology based on the admittance (J-) inverters for a dual-band wireless power transfer (WPT) system that employs two cascaded circulars defected ground structure (DGS) resonators with different capacitive loading to guarantee distinct resonances. A single microstrip line excites the two DGSs, and when two DGS resonators are coupled back to back, it transforms to a dual band pass filter leading to WPT at both bands. Each of the DGS resonators has independent coupling. Thus, the realized J-Inverters are designed independently. Also, we employ a single stub for the matching. This stub appears with a different length according to the operating frequency; hence, an independent external coupling is achieved at both frequencies. A compact size of 30 mm × 15 mm is fabricated achieving a WPT efficiency of more than 71% at a power transfer distance of 16 mm for both bands (0.3 and 0.7 GHz).
