In this paper a comparison is presented for different battery charging concepts of Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) systems using simulation models. In the focus of our investigation was, what kind of benefits can Inductive Power Transfer (IPT) for an AGV-based material handling system have, which is increasingly applied today. The proper application of IPT systems lets the reduction of the necessary number of AGVs and balances their utilization level.
