1. A wireless power supply apparatus, comprising:

  • a power supply unit configured to supply electric power;

    a power transmitting resonant coil configured to be able to resonate in a magnetic field with a power receiving resonant coil at a first resonant frequency that generates a magnetic field resonance, and transmit the electric power supplied from the power supply unit as a magnetic field energy by using the magnetic field resonance;

    a power receiving resonant coil configured to be able to resonate in a magnetic field with the power transmitting resonant coil at the first resonant frequency, and receive the magnetic field energy transmitted from the power transmitting resonant coil by using the magnetic field resonance;

    a power receiving unit configured to output the magnetic field energy received by the power receiving resonant coil as electric power;

    a distance detector configured to detect a distance between the power transmitting resonant coil and the power receiving resonant coil;

    a power transmitting frequency controller configured to change the first resonant frequency of the power transmitting resonant coil from the first resonant frequency to a second resonant frequency on the basis of the distance detected by the distance detector, the power transmitting frequency controller being provided for the power transmitting resonant coil; and

    a power receiving frequency controller configured to change the first resonant frequency of the power receiving resonant coil from the first resonant frequency to a second resonant frequency on the basis of the distance detected by the distance detector, the power receiving frequency controller being provided for the power receiving resonant coil.
