Abstract: World health statistics 2007 presented by World Health Organization (WHO) shows that Ischaemic Heart Disease will continue increasing and remain as the second highest cause of death after cancer. Although cardiac transplant is proven as the best therapy for end-stage congestive heart failure but donor supply is limited. The only hope for heart failure patient today is mechanical circulatory support. In the wide range of mechanical circulatory support systems, system with transcutaneous energy transmission (TET) module is the most preferable due to the elimination of open wound infection and its flexibility in patient movement. With the increasing use of implantable devices, the need for the development of a reliable, long term and high efficiency power energy source has become crucial. This project focuses on designing and developing rectifier and buck converter circuit for a magnetically coupled transcutaneous energy transmission (MCTET) to transfer power noninvasively.
