This letter introduces two concentric open-loop spiral resonators (OLSRs) that are used to improve magnetic field for nonradiative wireless power transfer (WPT) systems. OLSRs are fed through metal-insulator-metal (MIM) capacitive coupling using a 50 Ω microstrip transmission line. First, a single OLSR is designed and implemented for WPT, then two OLSRs are used instead of a single OLSR to emphasize the surface current on the spiral resonators. Therefore, it helps to intensify the electromagnetic field in order to get a high transmission distance or higher efficiency. The proposed WPT system operates at 438.5 MHz with a measured power transfer efficiency (PTE) of 70.8% at a transmission distance of 31 mm and a design area of 576 mm2. An equivalent circuit of the proposed WPT system is presented as a heuristic approach to show the electrical behavior of the WPT system.
