Wireless power transmission is the way to transfer power without using wire. Wireless power transmission helps to connect those areas where people are unable to get a suitable power source. The implementation of this system is to make life better and reduce the usage of wire or cable. The issues for certain applications are needed to put very near between the transmitter and the receiver. The superimposed technique is studied to solve a part of WPT technology. Using DC voltage in series with AC voltage in the coil can increase the voltage in AC type. 100Watt of power transmission had been designed to transmit electrical energy. The method was used to analyze the coil based on two sizes which are 16cm and 160cm of the diameter of the coil. Both experiments were tested in an open area without barriers. The purposed of design to identify the performance of coil transmission based on distance in the WPT system to turn on the 5V of LED. To get longer distance, the superimposed technique had been studying in order to get higher voltage at the transmission coil. The superimposed technique shows the increment of distance up to 2 times compared to the system without the superimposed technique.
