This paper discusses the probability of improving the degree of freedom in implementing wireless power transfer (WPT) systems. This is possible by utilizing the defected ground structures (DGSs). The WPT efficiency can be increased by optimizing the coupling coefficient (K) between the transmitter and the receiver, and the quality (Q-) factor of them. DGSs can be implemented in different shapes; hence, the K and Q-factor of these DSGs are realized with different values depending on the DGS shape. In return, the achievable WPT efficiency can be maximized by careful selection of the DGS shape and dimensions depending on the system efficiency and distance requirements.
