Recently electric railways are considered as clean and ecological transportation system. This research focuses on contactless power transmission machines, which can accelerate the introduction of electric railways. I made a research about the effect on the transfer efficiency by coil misalignment and the shape of cores. This knowledge helps  realization of the contactless power transfer machine which has a tolerance to misalignment and high capacity. 

I am very glad that I got this award. I really appreciate the help of Prof. Koseki and all my colleagues.I will continue doing my best on the research from now on.
