BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION [0001] 1. Field of the Invention [0002] The present invention relates to a power feeding coil unit and a wireless power transmission device for wireless transmission of power. [0003] 2. Description of the Related Art [0004] Wireless power transmission technology that utilizes an electromagnetic induction effect between a primary (power feeding) coil and a secondary (power receiving) coil that face each other to transmit power without any mechanical contact such as a cable has attracted attention recently. There has been an increasing demand for the development of a technology that allows high-efficiency and low-loss power transmission. [0005] In this situation, the issue of an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed around the power feeding coil due to the leakage magnetic flux of the power feeding coil has been gaining attention. For example, in the application of wireless power transmission technology to chargers for power electronic devices such as electric vehicles, due to the demand for high-power transmission, a large current needs to flow through the power feeding coil. In this case, the strength of the unwanted leakage magnetic field due to the leakage magnetic flux also increases, raising a concern of potentially inducing electromagnetic interference which might affect nearby electronic equipment and so forth. [0006] To address the issue described above, for example, Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication No. 09-74034 discloses a technique for eliminating or reducing noise caused by the leakage magnetic flux of a coil for power transmission by using a noise canceling coil that interlinks with the magnetic flux created by the coil for power transmission. [0007] However, in the technique disclosed in Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication No. 09-74034, since the magnetic flux created by the coil for power transmission interlinks with the noise canceling coil, even a magnetic flux that would contribute to power transmission might also be canceled, resulting in a reduction in power transmission efficiency. SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION [0008] Accordingly, an embodiment of the present invention provides a power feeding coil unit and a wireless power transmission device to prevent or minimize a reduction in power transmission efficiency while reducing an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from a power feeding coil. [0009] A power feeding coil unit according to an aspect of the present invention is a power feeding coil unit for wirelessly feeding power. The power feeding coil unit includes a power feeding coil and an auxiliary coil. The auxiliary coil is arranged not to interlink with a magnetic flux interlinking with a power receiving coil that is arranged to face a power feeding coil during power feeding. An axial direction of the auxiliary coil is nonparallel to an opposing direction of the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. A direction of circulation of a magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil is opposite to a direction of circulation of a magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil. [0010] According to the aspect of the present invention, the axial direction of the auxiliary coil is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. Thus, the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil easily circulates also in a location away from the auxiliary coil without interlinking with the power receiving coil. In this state, the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil. In locations away from the power feeding coil and the auxiliary coil, which are magnetic flux generators, therefore, the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil and the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil are oriented in opposite directions, allowing the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil and the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil to be canceled by each other. The strength of a magnetic field formed in a location away from the power feeding coil is reduced. In addition, the auxiliary coil is arranged not to interlink with a magnetic flux interlinking with the power receiving coil arranged to face the power feeding coil during power feeding. Thus, a magnetic flux contributing to power transmission is not canceled out using the auxiliary coil. Accordingly, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized with a reduction in an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from a power feeding coil. [0011] The power feeding coil unit according to the aspect of the present invention may be configured such that the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil does not cancel a magnetic flux that is generated by the power feeding coil and is interlinking with the power receiving coil, and the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil cancels some amount of magnetic flux that is generated by the power feeding coil and is not interlinking with the power receiving coil. Here, a large proportion of a magnetic flux that forms an unwanted leakage magnetic field in a location away from the power feeding coil is a magnetic flux not interlinking with the power receiving coil. In the aspect of the present invention, the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil does not cancel the magnetic flux that is generated by the power feeding coil and is interlinking with the power receiving coil, and the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil cancels some amount of magnetic flux that is generated by the power feeding coil and is not interlinking with the power receiving coil. Accordingly, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized with a reduction in an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from a power feeding coil. The phrase “not cancel the magnetic flux interlinking with the power receiving coil”, as used herein, is not intended to exclude even accidental cancellation of a magnetic flux interlinking with the power receiving coil by the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil in a location away from the power feeding coil when part of the magnetic flux interlinking with the power receiving coil circulates also in a location away from the power feeding coil due to some influence of the ambient environment or the like. [0012] In addition, the power feeding coil unit according to the aspect of the present invention may be configured such that a magnetic field generated by the auxiliary coil enhances a part of a magnetic field between the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. In this case, the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil and the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil are oriented in substantially the same direction between the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. Accordingly, a magnetic flux interlinking both the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. [0013] Preferably, each of the power feeding coil and the auxiliary coil includes a magnetic core, and the magnetic core of the auxiliary coil is coupled to the magnetic core of the power feeding coil. In this case, the auxiliary coil easily generates a magnetic flux that enhances a magnetic field between the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. That is, the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil and the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil are oriented in substantially the same direction between the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. Accordingly, a magnetic flux interlinking both the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. [0014] Preferably, the auxiliary coil is located on the opposite to a side of the power feeding coil facing the power receiving coil. In this case, the auxiliary coil easily generates a magnetic flux that enhances a magnetic field between the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. That is, the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil and the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil are oriented in substantially the same direction between the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. Accordingly, a magnetic flux interlinking both the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. [0015] More preferably, the auxiliary coil is arranged so that part or all of the auxiliary coil overlaps the power feeding coil when viewed from the opposing direction of the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. In this case, the auxiliary coil and the power feeding coil are arranged so as to be closer to each other. Thus, the density distribution of the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil in a location away from the power feeding coil may be made closer to the density distribution of the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil. As a result, the effect of reducing an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the power feeding coil may further be enhanced. [0016] Preferably, the axial direction of the auxiliary coil is substantially perpendicular to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. In this case, the auxiliary coil easily generates a magnetic flux that circulates also in a location away from the auxiliary coil. Accordingly, the effect of reducing an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the power feeding coil may further be enhanced. [0017] In addition, the power feeding coil unit according to the aspect of the present invention may be configured such that the power feeding coil includes a first power feeding coil and a second power feeding coil that are apposed, and a magnetic path interlinking the first power feeding coil and the second power feeding coil is generated by a magnetic field of the first power feeding coil and a magnetic field of the second power feeding coil. In this case, the first and second power feeding coils efficiently generate a magnetic flux interlinking with the power receiving coil, and thus power transmission efficiency may be improved. [0018] Preferably, at least part of the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil interlinks with the power feeding coil. In this case, the auxiliary coil easily generates a magnetic flux that enhances a magnetic field between the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. That is, the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil and the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil are oriented in substantially the same direction between the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil. Accordingly, a magnetic flux interlinking both the power feeding coil and the power receiving coil, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the auxiliary coil. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. [0019] Preferably, the power feeding coil unit further includes an additional coil arranged on the opposite to a side of the power feeding coil facing the power receiving coil and arranged so as to have a center portion located between a center portion of the first power feeding coil and a center portion of the second power feeding coil. Preferably, a magnetic path interlinking the first power feeding coil, the second power feeding coil, and the additional coil is generated by a magnetic field of the first power feeding coil, a magnetic field of the second power feeding coil, and a magnetic field of the additional coil. In this case, the density of the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil may further be increased. Accordingly, a magnetic flux contributing to power transmission is more efficiently generated, and power transmission efficiency may thus be further increased. [0020] Preferably, the auxiliary coil includes a first auxiliary coil and a second auxiliary coil, and the first auxiliary coil and the second auxiliary coil are arranged so that a center portion of the power feeding coil is located between a center portion of the first auxiliary coil and a center portion of the second auxiliary coil. In this case, since two auxiliary coils are arranged on both outer sides of the power feeding coil, an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the power feeding coil may further be reduced. [0021] A wireless power transmission device according to another aspect of the present invention includes the power feeding coil unit described above, and a power receiving coil. According to the aspect of the present invention, it may be possible to provide a wireless power transmission device that prevents or minimizes a reduction in power transmission efficiency while reducing an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from a power feeding coil. [0022] According to some aspects of the present invention, therefore, it may be possible to provide a power feeding coil unit and a wireless power transmission device that prevent or minimize a reduction in power transmission efficiency while reducing an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from a power feeding coil.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS [0041] Embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the drawings. In the following description, substantially the same elements or elements having substantially the same function are given the same numerals or signs, and are not described again. First Embodiment [0042] First, a configuration of a wireless power transmission device S 1 according to a first embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 . FIG. 1 is a system configuration diagram illustrating a wireless power transmission device according to the first embodiment of the present invention together with a load. FIG. 2 is a cross-sectional view illustrating a power feeding coil unit according to the first embodiment of the present invention together with a power receiving coil. [0043] As illustrated in FIG. 1 , the wireless power transmission device S 1 includes a wireless power feeding device Ut 1 and a wireless power receiving device Ur. [0044] The wireless power feeding device Ut 1 includes a power source PW, an inverter INV, and a power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 . The power source PW supplies direct-current (DC) power to the inverter INV, described below. The power source PW is not limited to any particular one, and may be any power source that outputs DC power. Examples of such a power source may include a DC power source that is generated by rectifying and smoothing a commercial alternating-current (AC) power source, a secondary battery, a solar photovoltaic DC power source, and a switching power source device such as a switching converter. [0045] The inverter INV has a function to convert input DC power supplied from the power source PW into AC power. In this embodiment, the inverter INV converts input DC power supplied from the power source PW into AC power, and supplies the AC power to the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 described below. The inverter INV may be implemented as a switching circuit having a plurality of switching elements bridge-connected. Examples of the switching elements of the switching circuit may include metal oxide semiconductor-field effect transistor (MOSFET) elements and insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) elements. [0046] The power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 includes a first power feeding coil Lta, a second power feeding coil Ltb, a first auxiliary coil Lca, a second auxiliary coil Lcb, and a magnetic body F 1 . In this embodiment, as illustrated in FIG. 1 , four coils, that is, the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb, are electrically connected in series with one another. In a case where the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to this embodiment is used for an electric power supply facility for a vehicle such as an electric vehicle, the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 will be installed in or on, or near, the ground. [0047] The individual coils included in the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 will now be described with reference to FIG. 2 . The first power feeding coil Lta includes a magnetic core Cta and a wire Wta. The first power feeding coil Lta is a planar-shaped spiral coil having a substantially rectangular shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wta, which is made of a Litz wire such as a copper wire or an aluminum wire, around the magnetic core Cta. The axial direction of the first power feeding coil Lta is parallel to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and a power receiving coil Lr described below. The number of turns of the first power feeding coil Lta is appropriately set on the basis of the separation distance between the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr described below, the desired power transmission efficiency, and so forth. [0048] The second power feeding coil Ltb includes a magnetic core Ctb and a wire Wtb. The second power feeding coil Ltb is a planar-shaped spiral coil having a substantially rectangular shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wtb, which is made of a Litz wire such as a copper wire or an aluminum wire, around the magnetic core Ctb. The axial direction of the second power feeding coil Ltb is parallel to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. The second power feeding coil Ltb is apposed in the same plane as the first power feeding coil Lta. The arrangement interval between the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the number of turns of the second power feeding coil Ltb are appropriately set on the basis of the separation distance between the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below, the desired power transmission efficiency, and so forth. The first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb have a function to wirelessly feed the AC power supplied from the inverter INV to the power receiving coil Lr described below. [0049] In addition, the first power feeding coil Lta and the second power feeding coil Ltb are configured such that a magnetic path interlinking the power feeding coils Lta and Ltb is formed by magnetic fields respectively generated by the power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. In this case, the power feeding coils Lta and Ltb efficiently generate a magnetic flux that interlinks with the power receiving coil Lr described below, enabling an improvement in power transmission efficiency. Specifically, the first power feeding coil Lta and the second power feeding coil Ltb generate a magnetic flux that circulates so as to interlink the power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. The magnetic flux that circulates through the power feeding coils Lta and Ltb interlinks with the first power feeding coil Lta and interlinks with the second power feeding coil Ltb in opposite directions. In order to form a magnetic path interlinking the power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, it may be sufficient to electrically connect the first power feeding coil Lta and the second power feeding coil Ltb to each other so that the direction of the magnetic field generated by the first power feeding coil Lta and the direction of the magnetic field generated by the second power feeding coil Ltb are opposite to each other. That is, in a case where the first power feeding coil Lta and the second power feeding coil Ltb are wound in the same direction, it may be sufficient to connect the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb so that the direction of the current flowing in the first power feeding coil Lta and the direction of the current flowing in the second power feeding coil Ltb are opposite to each other. Alternatively, in a case where the first power feeding coil Lta and the second power feeding coil Ltb are wound in opposite directions, it may be sufficient to connect the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb so that the direction of the current flowing in the first power feeding coil Lta and the direction of the current flowing in the second power feeding coil Ltb are the same. Note that the direction of a magnetic flux that circulates so as to interlink the power feeding coils Lta and Ltb is the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by a “power feeding coil”. [0050] The first auxiliary coil Lca includes a magnetic core Cca and a wire Wca. The first auxiliary coil Lca is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wca, which is made of a Litz wire such as a copper wire or an aluminum wire, around the magnetic core Cca, which is shaped into a plate or a bar. The axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lca is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. The configuration described above allows the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca to easily circulate also in a location away from the first auxiliary coil Lca without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr described below. In this embodiment, the axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lca is perpendicular to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. In this case, the first auxiliary coil Lca more facilitates the generation of a magnetic flux circulating also in a location away from the first auxiliary coil Lca. [0051] In addition, the first auxiliary coil Lca is arranged not to interlink with a magnetic flux interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr described below, that is arranged to face the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb during power feeding. That is, the magnetic flux contributing to power transmission is not canceled out using the first auxiliary coil Lca. Thus, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. In this embodiment, as illustrated in FIG. 2 , the first auxiliary coil Lca is arranged on the opposite to the side of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb facing the power receiving coil Lr described below. More specifically, the first auxiliary coil Lca is arranged so as to overlap the first power feeding coil Lta when viewed from the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. The arrangement described above allows the first auxiliary coil Lca to easily generate a magnetic flux that enhances a magnetic field between the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr described below. That is, the magnetic flux generated by the first power feeding coil Lta and the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca are oriented in substantially the same direction between the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr described below. Accordingly, the magnetic flux interlinking both the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr described below, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. In addition, the first auxiliary coil Lca and the first power feeding coil Lta are arranged so as to be closer to each other. Thus, the density distribution of the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca in a location away from the first power feeding coil Lta may be made closer to the density distribution of the magnetic flux generated by the first power feeding coil Lta. [0052] Furthermore, the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. Specifically, in FIG. 2 , when the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb interlinks the first power feeding coil Lta in the direction from the first power feeding coil Lta to the power receiving coil Lr described below (i.e., vertically upward in FIG. 2 ) and interlinks the second power feeding coil Ltb in the direction from the power receiving coil Lr described below to the second power feeding coil Ltb (i.e., vertically downward in FIG. 2 ), the first auxiliary coil Lca generates a magnetic flux interlinking in the direction from the first auxiliary coil Lca to a center portion of the first power feeding coil Lta (i.e., horizontally rightward in FIG. 2 ). Thus, the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. Alternatively, in FIG. 2 , when the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb interlinks the first power feeding coil Lta in the direction from the power receiving coil Lr described below to the first power feeding coil Lta (i.e., vertically downward in FIG. 2 ) and interlinks the second power feeding coil Ltb in the direction from the second power feeding coil Ltb to the power receiving coil Lr described below (i.e., vertically upward in FIG. 2 ), the first auxiliary coil Lca generates a magnetic flux interlinking in the direction from the center portion of the first power feeding coil Lta to the first auxiliary coil Lca (i.e.; horizontally leftward in FIG. 2 ). Thus, the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. In order to generate the magnetic flux described above, it may be sufficient to wind the wire Wca of the first auxiliary coil Lca around the magnetic core Cca so that the direction of the current flowing through a portion of the wire Wca of the first auxiliary coil Lca in closest proximity to the wire Wta of the first power feeding coil Lta (i.e., the upper portion of the wire Wca of the first auxiliary coil Lca in FIG. 2 ) is the same as the direction of the current flowing through a portion of the wire Wta of the first power feeding coil Lta in closest proximity to the wire Wca of the first auxiliary coil Lca (i.e., the left-hand portion of the wire Wta of the first power feeding coil Lta in FIG. 2 ). With the configuration described above, in locations away from the first power feeding coil Lta and the first auxiliary coil Lca, which are magnetic flux generators, the magnetic flux generated by the first power feeding coil Lta and the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca are oriented in opposite directions, allowing the magnetic flux generated by the first power feeding coil Lta and the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca to be canceled by each other. The strength of a magnetic field formed in a location away from the first power feeding coil Lta is reduced. Accordingly, a reduction in the unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb may be achieved. [0053] The second auxiliary coil Lcb includes a magnetic core Ccb and a wire Wcb. The second auxiliary coil Lcb is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wcb, which is made of a Litz wire such as a copper wire or an aluminum wire, around the magnetic core Ccb, which is shaped into a plate or a bar. The axial direction of the second auxiliary coil Lcb is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. The configuration described above allows the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb to easily circulate also in a location away from the second auxiliary coil Lcb without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr described below. In this embodiment, the axial direction of the second auxiliary coil Lcb is perpendicular to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. In this case, the second auxiliary coil Lcb more facilitates the generation of a magnetic flux circulating also in a location away from the second auxiliary coil Lcb. [0054] In addition, the second auxiliary coil Lcb is arranged not to interlink with a magnetic flux interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr described below, that is arranged to face the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb during power feeding. That is, the magnetic flux contributing to power transmission is not canceled out using the second auxiliary coil Lcb. Thus, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. In this embodiment, as illustrated in FIG. 2 , the second auxiliary coil Lcb is arranged on the opposite to the side of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb facing the power receiving coil Lr described below. More specifically, the second auxiliary coil Lcb is arranged so as to overlap the second power feeding coil Ltb when viewed from the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. The arrangement described above allows the second auxiliary coil Lcb to easily generate a magnetic flux that enhances a magnetic field between the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. That is, the magnetic flux generated by the second power feeding coil Ltb and the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb are oriented in substantially the same direction between the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. Accordingly, the magnetic flux interlinking both the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. In addition, the second auxiliary coil Lcb and the second power feeding coil Ltb are arranged so as to be closer to each other. Thus, the density distribution of the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb in a location away from the second power feeding coil Ltb may be made closer to the density distribution of the magnetic flux generated by the second power feeding coil Ltb. [0055] Furthermore, the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. Specifically, in FIG. 2 , when the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb interlinks the first power feeding coil Lta in the direction from the first power feeding coil Lta to the power receiving coil Lr described below (i.e., vertically upward in FIG. 2 ) and interlinks the second power feeding coil Ltb in the direction from the power receiving coil Lr described below to the second power feeding coil Ltb (i.e., vertically downward in FIG. 2 ), the second auxiliary coil Lcb generates a magnetic flux interlinking in the direction from a center portion of the second power feeding coil Ltb to the second auxiliary coil Lcb (i.e., horizontally rightward in FIG. 2 ). Thus, the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. Alternatively, in FIG. 2 , when the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb interlinks the first power feeding coil Lta in the direction from the power receiving coil Lr described below to the first power feeding coil Lta (i.e., vertically downward in FIG. 2 ) and interlinks the second power feeding coil Ltb in the direction from the second power feeding coil Ltb to the power receiving coil Lr described below (i.e., vertically upward in FIG. 2 ), the second auxiliary coil Lcb generates a magnetic flux interlinking in the direction from the second auxiliary coil Lcb to the center portion of the second power feeding coil Ltb (i.e., horizontally leftward in FIG. 2 ). Thus, the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. In order to generate the magnetic flux described above, it may be sufficient to wind the wire Wcb of the second auxiliary coil Lcb around the magnetic core Ccb so that the direction of the current flowing through a portion of the wire Wcb of the second auxiliary coil Lcb in closest proximity to the wire Wtb of the second power feeding coil Ltb (i.e., the upper portion of the wire Wcb of the second auxiliary coil Lcb in FIG. 2 ) is the same as the direction of the current flowing through a portion of the wire Wtb of the second power feeding coil Ltb in most proximity to the wire Wcb of the second auxiliary coil Lcb (i.e., the right-hand portion of the wire Wtb of the second power feeding coil Ltb in FIG. 2 ). With the configuration described above, in locations away from the second power feeding coil Ltb and the second auxiliary coil Lcb, which are magnetic flux generators, the magnetic flux generated by the second power feeding coil Ltb and the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb are oriented in opposite directions, allowing the magnetic flux generated by the second power feeding coil Ltb and the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb to be canceled by each other. The strength of a magnetic field formed in a location away from the second power feeding coil Ltb is reduced. Accordingly, a reduction in the unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb may be achieved. [0056] The first auxiliary coil Lca and the second auxiliary coil Lcb are arranged so that the center portion of the first power feeding coil Lta and the center portion of the second power feeding coil Ltb are located between a center portion of the first auxiliary coil Lca and a center portion of the second auxiliary coil Lcb. Specifically, the first auxiliary coil Lca and the second auxiliary coil Lcb are arranged so that the center portion of the first auxiliary coil Lca and the center portion of the second auxiliary coil Lcb are located on both outer sides of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb in the direction of alignment of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. In this case, the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb are arranged on both outer sides of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. Thus, a further reduction in an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb may be achieved. [0057] The magnetic body F 1 extends along a surface on the opposite to the side of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb facing the power receiving coil Lr described below. In this embodiment, as illustrated in FIG. 2 , the magnetic body F 1 is connected to each of the magnetic core Cta of the first power feeding coil Lta and the magnetic core Ctb of the second power feeding coil Ltb near either end of the surface on a side of the magnetic body F 1 closer to the power receiving coil Lr described below (i.e., the upper surface in FIG. 2 ) in the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. As illustrated in FIG. 2 , the magnetic body F 1 is further connected to each of the magnetic core Cca of the first auxiliary coil Lca and the magnetic core Ccb of the second auxiliary coil Lcb on either side surface (i.e., the left and right side surfaces in FIG. 2 ) of the magnetic body F 1 in the direction of alignment of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. The configuration described above allows the magnetic core Cca of the first auxiliary coil Lca and the magnetic core Ccb of the second auxiliary coil Lcb to be coupled to the magnetic core Cta of the first power feeding coil Lta and the magnetic core Ctb of the second power feeding coil Ltb, respectively, via the magnetic body F 1 . Thus, the first auxiliary coil Lca easily generates a magnetic flux that enhances a magnetic field between the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr described below, and the second auxiliary coil Lcb easily generates a magnetic flux that enhances a magnetic field between the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. That is, the magnetic flux generated by the first power feeding coil Lta and the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca are oriented in substantially the same direction between the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr described below, and the magnetic flux generated by the second power feeding coil Ltb and the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb are oriented in substantially the same direction between the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below. Accordingly, the magnetic flux interlinking all of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr described below, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. [0058] As illustrated in FIG. 1 , the wireless power receiving device Ur includes the power receiving coil Lr and a rectifier circuit DB. [0059] As illustrated in FIG. 2 , the power receiving coil Lr includes a magnetic core Cr and a wire Wr. The power receiving coil Lr is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wr around the magnetic core Cr, which is shaped into a plate or a bar. The power receiving coil Lr has a function to receive the AC power fed from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb of the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 . In a case where the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to this embodiment is used for an electric power supply facility for a vehicle such as an electric vehicle, the power receiving coil Lr will be mounted on the bottom of the vehicle. [0060] The rectifier circuit DB has a function to rectify the AC power received by the power receiving coil Lr to DC power. Examples of the rectifier circuit DB may include a converter circuit having a full-wave rectifying function that uses a diode bridge and a power smoothing function that uses a capacitor and a three-terminal regulator. The DC power obtained by rectification by the rectifier circuit DB is output to a load R. Examples of the load R may include, in a case where the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to this embodiment is used for an electric power supply facility for a vehicle such as an electric vehicle, a secondary battery and a rotating machine that are included in the vehicle. In a case where the load R is an AC rotating machine, the wireless power receiving device Ur will require an additional inverter (not illustrated) between the rectifier circuit DB and the load R to supply AC power to the AC rotating machine. [0061] The relative relationship between a magnetic flux generated by a power feeding coil and a magnetic flux generated by an auxiliary coil and the effect of reducing the unwanted leakage magnetic field in this embodiment will now be described in detail with reference to FIGS. 3A and 3B . FIG. 3A is a diagram schematically illustrating the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb in FIG. 2 . FIG. 3B is a diagram schematically illustrating the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb in FIG. 2 . In FIG. 3A , magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a to Bt 1 d are illustrated as typical magnetic fluxes generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. In FIG. 3B , magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a to Bt 1 d are illustrated as typical magnetic fluxes generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, and magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a to Bc 1 d are schematically illustrated as typical magnetic fluxes generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb. Note that the illustrated magnetic fluxes schematically depict only the orientations of the individual magnetic fluxes, and do not depict the magnetic flux densities. In FIG. 3A and FIG. 3B , the magnetic flux in the magnetic cores Cta and Ctb of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, the magnetic cores Cca and Ccb of the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb, the magnetic body F 1 , and the magnetic core Cr of the power receiving coil Lr is not illustrated. [0062] First, the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb will be described with reference to FIG. 3A . As illustrated in FIG. 3A , the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb generate the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a to Bt 1 d that interlink the first power feeding coil Lta in the direction from the first power feeding coil Lta to the power receiving coil Lr (i.e., vertically upward in FIG. 3A ) and that interlink the second power feeding coil Ltb in the direction from the power receiving coil Lr to the second power feeding coil Ltb (i.e., vertically downward in FIG. 3A ). That is, the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb generate the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a to Bt 1 d circulating in the same direction. In the illustrated example, the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a to Bt 1 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb include magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b that interlink with the power receiving coil Lr and that contribute to power transmission, and magnetic fluxes Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d that circulate in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. The interlinking of the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b with the power receiving coil Lr induces an electromotive force in the wire Wr of the power receiving coil Lr. The power generated in the power receiving coil Lr is rectified by the rectifier circuit DB, and is output to the load R. In this embodiment, a magnetic path interlinking the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb is formed by magnetic fields respectively generated by the first power feeding coil Lta and the second power feeding coil Ltb, enabling efficient generation of the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b . Thus, the magnetic flux density of the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b that circulate in the vicinity of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb is significantly higher than that of the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d that largely circulate also in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. That is, a large proportion of the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb interlinks with the power receiving coil Lr. As a result, the coupling between the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr is high, and the power transmission efficiency is also high. The magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a to Bt 1 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb do not interlink with the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb, and the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b , which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled out using the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb. Thus, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. [0063] The magnetic flux generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb will now be described with reference to FIG. 3B . The magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a to Bt 1 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb in FIG. 3B are as illustrated in FIG. 3A . As illustrated in FIG. 3B , the first auxiliary coil Lca generates magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a and Bc 1 b that interlink the first auxiliary coil Lca in the direction from the first auxiliary coil Lca to the center portion of the first power feeding coil Lta (i.e., horizontally rightward in FIG. 3B ) and that interlink the first power feeding coil Lta in the direction from the first power feeding coil Lta to the power receiving coil Lr (i.e., vertically upward in FIG. 3B ). Specifically, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lca is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a and Bc 1 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca circulate in a location away from the first auxiliary coil Lca without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. In particular, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lca is perpendicular to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a and Bc 1 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca largely circulate also in a location away from the first auxiliary coil Lca. In addition, the first auxiliary coil Lca is arranged on the opposite to the side of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb facing the power receiving coil Lr. Thus, the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a and Bc 1 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca interlink with the first power feeding coil Lta. [0064] Likewise, as illustrated in FIG. 3B , the second auxiliary coil Lcb generates magnetic fluxes Bc 1 c and Bc 1 d that interlink the second auxiliary coil Lcb in the direction from the second power feeding coil Ltb to the second auxiliary coil Lcb (i.e., horizontally rightward in FIG. 3B ) and that interlink the second power feeding coil Ltb in the direction from the power receiving coil Lr to the second power feeding coil Ltb (i.e., vertically downward in FIG. 3B ). Specifically, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the second auxiliary coil Lcb is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 c and Bc 1 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb circulate in a location away from the second auxiliary coil Lcb without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. In particular, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the second auxiliary coil Lcb is perpendicular to opposing the direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 c and Bc 1 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb largely circulate also in a location away from the second auxiliary coil Lcb. In addition, since the second auxiliary coil Lcb is arranged on the opposite to the side of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb facing the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 c and Bc 1 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lab interlink with the second power feeding coil Ltb. [0065] Next, the effect of reducing the unwanted leakage magnetic field in this embodiment will be described. As described above, the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb generate the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d that circulate in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. The magnetic fluxes Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d do not contribute to power transmission because of not interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr, and become magnetic fluxes that form an unwanted leakage magnetic field around the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, although the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d have a significantly lower magnetic flux density than the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b that circulate in the vicinity of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. In this embodiment, the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a and Bc 1 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca and the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 c and Bc 1 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb are opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a to Bt 1 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. Accordingly, as illustrated in FIG. 3B , the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a to Bc 1 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb are oriented in opposite directions in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. That is, the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb are canceled by the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a to Bc 1 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. Here, a magnetic field is represented by a magnetic flux density. Due to the cancellation of the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, which form the unwanted leakage magnetic field, the magnetic flux density of the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d decreases. As a result, the unwanted leakage magnetic field may be reduced. [0066] On the other hand, the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a and Bc 1 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca are oriented in substantially the same direction in the vicinity of the first power feeding coil Lta. That is, the magnetic field generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca enhances a part of the magnetic field between the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr. In this manner, the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b generated by the first power feeding coil Lta and the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a and Bc 1 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca are oriented in substantially the same direction between the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr. Accordingly, the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b interlinking both the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr, which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled by the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a and Bc 1 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. Similarly, the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 c and Bc 1 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb are oriented in substantially the same direction in the vicinity of the second power feeding coil Ltb. That is, the magnetic field generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb enhances a part of the magnetic field between the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr. In this manner, the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b generated by the second power feeding coil Ltb and the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 c and Bc 1 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb are oriented in substantially the same direction between the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr. Accordingly, the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b interlinking both the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr, which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled by the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 c and Bc 1 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. [0067] In this manner, the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a to Bc 1 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb do not cancel the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b that is generated by the first and second power feeding coil Lta and Ltb and are interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr, and the magnetic flux Bc 1 a to Bc 1 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coil Lca and Lcb cancel the magnetic flux Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d that is generated by the first and second power feeding coil Lta and Ltb and is not interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. This may prevent or minimize a reduction in power transmission efficiency while reducing an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. [0068] In the manner described above, in the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 according to this embodiment, the axial direction of the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr. This allows the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a to Bc 1 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb to easily circulate also in a location away from the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. In this state, the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a to Bc 1 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a to Bt 1 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. In locations away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb, which are magnetic flux generators, therefore, the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a to Bc 1 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb are oriented in opposite directions, allowing the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 c and Bt 1 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the magnetic fluxes Bc 1 a to Bc 1 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb to be canceled by each other. The strength of a magnetic field formed in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb is reduced. In addition, the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb are arranged not to interlink with the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr arranged to face the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb during power feeding. Thus, the magnetic fluxes Bt 1 a and Bt 1 b , which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled out using the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb. Accordingly, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized with a reduction in an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. Second Embodiment [0069] Next, a configuration of a wireless power transmission device S 2 according to a second embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIG. 4 and FIG. 5 . FIG. 4 is a system configuration diagram illustrating a wireless power transmission device according to the second embodiment of the present invention together with a load. FIG. 5 is a cross-sectional view illustrating a power feeding coil unit according to the second embodiment of the present invention together with a power receiving coil. [0070] As illustrated in FIG. 4 , the wireless power transmission device S 2 includes a wireless power feeding device Ut 2 and a wireless power receiving device Ur. [0071] The wireless power feeding device Ut 2 includes a power source PW, an inverter INV, and a power feeding coil unit Ltu 2 . The configuration of the power source PW and the inverter INV is similar to that in the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to the first embodiment. The wireless power transmission device S 2 according to this embodiment is different from the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to the first embodiment in that the wireless power transmission device S 2 includes the power feeding coil unit Ltu 2 in place of the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 of the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to the first embodiment. The wireless power receiving device Ur is similar to the wireless power receiving device Ur in the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to the first embodiment. In the following, a description will be given mainly of the differences from the first embodiment. [0072] As illustrated in FIG. 4 , the power feeding coil unit Ltu 2 includes a first power feeding coil Lta, a second power feeding coil Ltb, a first auxiliary coil Lca, a second auxiliary coil Lcb, and an additional coil Lt 2 c . As illustrated in FIG. 4 , the first power feeding coil Lta, the second power feeding coil Ltb, the first auxiliary coil Lca, the second auxiliary coil Lcb, and the additional coil Lt 2 c are electrically connected in series with one another. The coil configuration of the first power feeding coil Lta, the second power feeding coil Ltb, the first auxiliary coil Lca, and the second auxiliary coil Lcb is similar to that of the first power feeding coil Lta, the second power feeding coil Ltb, the first auxiliary coil Lca, and the second auxiliary coil Lcb in the first embodiment. The power feeding coil unit Ltu 2 according to this embodiment is different from the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 according to the first embodiment in that the additional coil Lt 2 c is included in place of the magnetic body F 1 of the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 according to the first embodiment. [0073] As illustrated in FIG. 5 , the additional coil Lt 2 c includes a magnetic core Ct 2 c and a wire Wt 2 c . The additional coil Lt 2 c is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wt 2 c , which is made of a Litz wire such as a copper wire or an aluminum wire, around the magnetic core Ct 2 c , which is shaped into a plate. As illustrated in FIG. 5 , the additional coil Lt 2 c is arranged on the opposite to the side of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb facing the power receiving coil Lr so that a center portion of the additional coil Lt 2 c is located between a center portion of the first power feeding coil Lta and a center portion of the second power feeding coil Ltb. The magnetic core Ct 2 c of the additional coil Lt 2 c is connected to each of the magnetic core Cta of the first power feeding coil Lta and the magnetic core Ctb of the second power feeding coil Ltb near either end of the surface on a side of the magnetic core Ct 2 c of the additional coil Lt 2 c closer to the power receiving coil Lr (i.e., the upper surface in FIG. 5 ) in the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr. In this case, the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c more efficiently generate a magnetic flux that interlinks with a power receiving coil Lr described below, enabling a further improvement in power transmission efficiency. The number of turns of the additional coil Lt 2 c is appropriately set on the basis of the desired power transmission efficiency and so forth. [0074] The first power feeding coil Lta, the second power feeding coil Ltb, and the additional coil Lt 2 c are configured to form a magnetic path that interlinks the coils Lta, Ltb, and Lt 2 c by using magnetic fields respectively generated by the coils Lta, Ltb, and Lt 2 c . That is, the first power feeding coil Lta, the second power feeding coil Ltb, and the additional coil Lt 2 c generate a magnetic flux that circulates so as to interlink the coils Lta, Ltb, and Lt 2 c . As described above, the first power feeding coil Lta and the second power feeding coil Ltb are configured such that the directions of the magnetic fields generated by the coils Lta and Ltb are opposite to each other. That is, in FIG. 5 , when the first power feeding coil Lta generates a magnetic flux interlinking in the direction from the first power feeding coil Lta to the power receiving coil Lr (i.e., vertically upward in FIG. 5 ), the second power feeding coil Ltb generates a magnetic flux interlinking in the direction from the power receiving coil Lr to the second power feeding coil Ltb (i.e., vertically downward in FIG. 5 ). In this case, accordingly, if the additional coil Lt 2 c generates a magnetic flux interlinking in the direction from the center portion of the second power feeding coil Ltb to the center portion of the first power feeding coil Lta (i.e., horizontally leftward in FIG. 5 ), the circulation of a magnetic flux interlinking with the coils Lta, Ltb, and Lt 2 c occurs. Similarly, in FIG. 5 , when the first power feeding coil Lta generates a magnetic flux interlinking in the direction from the power receiving coil Lr to the first power feeding coil Lta (i.e., vertically downward in FIG. 5 ), the second power feeding coil Ltb generates a magnetic flux interlinking in the direction from the second power feeding coil Ltb to the power receiving coil Lr (i.e., vertically upward in FIG. 5 ). In this case, accordingly, if the additional coil Lt 2 c generates a magnetic flux interlinking in the direction from the center portion of the first power feeding coil Lta to the center portion of the second power feeding coil Ltb (i.e., horizontally rightward in FIG. 5 ), the circulation of a magnetic flux interlinking with the coils Lta, Ltb, and Lt 2 c occurs. In order to provide the additional coil Lt 2 c with the configuration described above, it may be sufficient to wind the wire Wt 2 c of the additional coil Lt 2 c around the magnetic core Ct 2 c so that the direction of the current flowing through portions of the wire Wt 2 c of the additional coil Lt 2 c in closest proximity to the wire Wta of the first power feeding coil Lta and the wire Wtb of the second power feeding coil Ltb (i.e., the upper side of the wire Wt 2 c of the additional coil Lt 2 c in FIG. 5 ) is the same as the direction of the current flowing through a portion of the wire Wta of the first power feeding coil Lta in closest proximity to the wire Wt 2 c of the additional coil Lt 2 c (i.e., the right side of the wire Wta of the first power feeding coil Lta in FIG. 5 ). Note that the direction of a magnetic flux that circulates so as to interlink the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c is the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by a “power feeding coil”. [0075] In this embodiment, the power feeding coil unit Ltu 2 includes the additional coil Lt 2 c in addition to the first power feeding coil Lta and the second power feeding coil Ltb, thereby efficiently generating a magnetic flux that contributes to power transmission, resulting in an increase in power transmission efficiency. In this case, in addition to the magnetic flux that contributes to power transmission, a magnetic flux that forms an unwanted leakage magnetic field might be generated. To address such a concern, for example, the number of turns of the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb may be increased to appropriately adjust the magnetic flux generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb, thereby maintaining the desired effect of reducing the leakage magnetic field. Since the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb are not elements that consume electric energy, even an increase in the number of turns of the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb will not cause significant power loss, and a significant reduction in power transmission efficiency will not occur. Specifically, the energy consumed by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb is only Joule heating generated by a small parasitic resistance of the wires Wca and Wcb of the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb. [0076] In addition, as illustrated in FIG. 5 , the magnetic core Ct 2 c of the additional coil Lt 2 c is connected to each of the magnetic core Cca of the first auxiliary coil Lca and the magnetic core Ccb of the second auxiliary coil Lcb near either end of the surface on a side of the magnetic core Ct 2 c opposite to the side of the magnetic core Ct 2 c closer to the power receiving coil Lr (i.e., the lower surface in FIG. 5 ) in the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr. The configuration described above allows the magnetic core Cca of the first auxiliary coil Lca and the magnetic core Ccb of the second auxiliary coil Lcb to be coupled to the magnetic core Cta of the first power feeding coil Lta and the magnetic core Ctb of the second power feeding coil Ltb, respectively, via the magnetic core Ct 2 c of the additional coil Lt 2 c . Thus, the first auxiliary coil Lca easily generates a magnetic flux that enhances the magnetic field between the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr, and the second auxiliary coil Lcb easily generates a magnetic flux that enhances the magnetic field between the second Power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr. That is, the magnetic flux generated by the first power feeding coil Lta and the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca are oriented in substantially the same direction between the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr, and the magnetic flux generated by the second power feeding coil Ltb and the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb are oriented in substantially the same direction between the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr. Accordingly, the magnetic flux interlinking all of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, the additional coil Lt 2 c , and the power receiving coil Lr, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. [0077] Furthermore, as illustrated in FIG. 5 , the axes of the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb are not aligned with the axis of the additional coil Lt 2 c . Here, the magnetic flux interlinking the first auxiliary coil Lca and the magnetic flux interlinking the additional coil Lt 2 c are oriented in opposite directions. Thus, if the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca interlinks with the additional coil Lt 2 c , the magnetic flux might cancel a magnetic flux that contributes to power transmission. In this embodiment, since the axis of the first auxiliary coil Lca is not aligned with the axis of the additional coil Lt 2 c , it is difficult for the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca to interlink with the additional coil Lt 2 c . As a result, the magnetic flux interlinking all of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, the additional coil Lt 2 c , and the power receiving coil Lr, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lea. Likewise, the magnetic flux interlinking the second auxiliary coil Lcb and the magnetic flux interlinking the additional coil Lt 2 c are also oriented in opposite directions. Thus, if the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb interlinks with the additional coil Lt 2 c , the magnetic flux might cancel a magnetic flux that contributes to power transmission. In this embodiment, since the axis of the second auxiliary coil Lcb is not aligned with the axis of the additional coil Lt 2 c , it is difficult for the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb to interlink with the additional coil Lt 2 c . As a result, the magnetic flux interlinking all of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, the additional coil Lt 2 c , and the power receiving coil Lr, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb. Accordingly, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. [0078] The relative relationship between the magnetic flux generated by a power feeding coil and the magnetic flux generated by an auxiliary coil and the effect of reducing the unwanted leakage magnetic field in this embodiment will now be described in detail with reference to FIGS. 6A and 6B . FIG. 6A is a diagram schematically illustrating the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c in FIG. 5 . FIG. 6B is a diagram schematically illustrating the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, the additional coil Lt 2 c , and the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb in FIG. 5 . In FIG. 6A , magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a to Bt 2 d are illustrated as typical magnetic fluxes generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c . In FIG. 6B , magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a to Bt 2 d are illustrated as typical magnetic fluxes generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c , and magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a to Bc 2 d are schematically illustrated as typical magnetic fluxes generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb. Note that the illustrated magnetic fluxes schematically depict only the orientations of the individual magnetic fluxes, and do not depict the magnetic flux densities. In FIG. 6A and FIG. 6B , the magnetic flux in the magnetic cores Cta and Ctb of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, the magnetic core Ct 2 c of the additional coil Lt 2 c , the magnetic cores Cca and Ccb of the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb, and the magnetic core Cr of the power receiving coil Lr is not illustrated. [0079] First, the magnetic flux generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c will be described with reference to FIG. 6A . As illustrated in FIG. 6A , the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c generate the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a to Bt 2 d that interlink the first power feeding coil Lta in the direction from the first power feeding coil Lta to the power receiving coil Lr (i.e., vertically upward in FIG. 6A ), that interlink the second power feeding coil Ltb in the direction from the power receiving coil Lr to the second power feeding coil Ltb (i.e., vertically downward in FIG. 6A ), and that interlink the additional coil Lt 2 c in the direction from the center portion of the second power feeding coil Ltb to the center portion of the first power feeding coil Lta (i.e., horizontally leftward in FIG. 6A ). That is, the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c generate the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a to Bt 2 d that circulate in the same direction. In the illustrated example, the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a to Bt 2 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c include magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b that interlink with the power receiving coil Lr and that contribute to power transmission, and magnetic fluxes Bt 2 c and Bt 2 d that circulate in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. The interlinking of the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b with the power receiving coil Lr induces an electromotive force in the wire Wr of the power receiving coil Lr. The power generated in the power receiving coil Lr is rectified by the rectifier circuit DB, and is output to the load R. In this embodiment, a magnetic path interlinking the first power feeding coil Lta, the second power feeding coil Ltb, and the additional coil Lt 2 c is formed by magnetic fields respectively generated by the coils Lta, Ltb, and Lt 2 c , allowing more efficient generation of the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b . As a result, the coupling between the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, the additional coil Lt 2 c , and the power receiving coil Lr further increases, and power transmission efficiency also further increases. The magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a to Bt 2 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c do not interlink with the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb, and the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b , which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled out using the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb. Thus, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. [0080] The magnetic flux generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb will now be described with reference to FIG. 6B . The magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a to Bt 2 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c in FIG. 6B are as illustrated in FIG. 6A . As illustrated in FIG. 6B , the first auxiliary coil Lca generates magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a and Bc 2 b that interlink the first auxiliary coil Lca in the direction from the first auxiliary coil Lca to the center portion of the first power feeding coil Lta (i.e., horizontally rightward in FIG. 6B ) and that interlink the first power feeding coil Lta in the direction from the first power feeding coil Lta to the power receiving coil Lr (i.e., vertically upward in FIG. 6B ). Specifically, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lca is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a and Bc 2 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca circulate in a location away from the first auxiliary coil Lca without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. In particular, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lca is perpendicular to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a and Bc 2 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca largely circulate also in a location away from the first auxiliary coil Lca. Furthermore, since the first auxiliary coil Lca is arranged on the opposite to the side of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb facing the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a and Bc 2 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca interlink with the first power feeding coil Lta. In addition, since the axis of the first auxiliary coil Lca is not aligned with the axis of the additional coil Lt 2 c , the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a and Bc 2 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca do not interlink with the additional coil Lt 2 c. [0081] Likewise, as illustrated in FIG. 6B , the second auxiliary coil Lcb generates magnetic fluxes Bc 2 c and Bc 2 d that interlink the second auxiliary coil Lcb in the direction from the center portion of the second power feeding coil Ltb to the second auxiliary coil Lcb (i.e., horizontally rightward in FIG. 6B ) and that interlink the second power feeding coil Ltb in the direction from the power receiving coil Lr to the second power feeding coil Ltb (i.e., vertically downward in FIG. 6B ). Specifically, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the second auxiliary coil Lcb is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 c and Bc 2 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb circulate in a location away from the second auxiliary coil Lcb without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. In particular, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the second auxiliary coil Lcb is perpendicular to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 c and Bc 2 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb largely circulate also in a location away from the second auxiliary coil Lcb. In addition, since the second auxiliary coil Lcb is arranged on the opposite to the side of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb facing the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 c and Bc 2 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb interlink with the second power feeding coil Ltb. In addition, since the axis of the second auxiliary coil Lcb is not aligned with the axis of the additional coil Lt 2 c , the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 c and Bc 2 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb do not interlink with the additional coil Lt 2 c. [0082] Next, the effect of reducing the unwanted leakage magnetic field in this embodiment will be described. As described above, the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c generate the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 c and Bt 2 d that circulate in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. The magnetic fluxes Bt 2 c and Bt 2 d do not contribute to power transmission because of not interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr, and become magnetic fluxes that form an unwanted leakage magnetic field around the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, although the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 c and Bt 2 d have a significantly lower magnetic flux density than the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b that circulate in the vicinity of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. In this embodiment, the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a and Bc 2 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca and the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 c and Bc 2 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb are opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a to Bt 2 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c . Accordingly, as illustrated in FIG. 6B , the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 c and Bt 2 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c and the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a to Bc 2 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb are oriented in opposite directions in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. That is, the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 c and Bt 2 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c are canceled by the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a to Bc 2 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. As a result, the unwanted leakage magnetic field may be reduced. [0083] On the other hand, the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a and Bc 2 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca are oriented in substantially the same direction in the vicinity of the first power feeding coil Lta. That is, the magnetic field generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca enhances a part of the magnetic field between the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr. In this manner, the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b generated by the first power feeding coil Lta and the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a and Bc 2 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca are oriented in substantially the same direction between the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr. Accordingly, the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b interlinking both the first power feeding coil Lta and the power receiving coil Lr, which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled by the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a and Bc 2 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lca. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. Similarly, the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 c and Bc 2 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb are oriented in substantially the same direction in the vicinity of the second power feeding coil Ltb. That is, the magnetic field generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb enhances a part of the magnetic field between the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr. In this manner, the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b generated by the second power feeding coil Ltb and the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 c and Bc 2 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb are oriented in substantially the same direction between the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr. Accordingly, the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b interlinking both the second power feeding coil Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr, which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled by the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 c and Bc 2 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lcb. As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. [0084] In this manner, the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a to Bc 2 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb do not cancel the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b that is generated by the first and second power feeding coil Lta and Ltb and are interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr, and the magnetic flux Bc 2 a to Bc 2 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coil Lca and Lcb cancel the magnetic flux Bt 2 c and Bt 2 d that is generated by the first and second power feeding coil Lta and Ltb and is not interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. This may prevent or minimize a reduction in power transmission efficiency while reducing an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. [0085] In the manner described above, in the power feeding coil unit Ltu 2 according to this embodiment, the axial direction of the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the power receiving coil Lr. This allows the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a to Bc 2 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb to easily circulate also in a location away from the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. In this state, the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a to Bc 2 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a to Bt 2 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c . In locations away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb, the additional coil Lt 2 c , and the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb, which are magnetic flux generators, therefore, the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 c and Bt 2 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c and the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a to Bc 2 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb are oriented in opposite directions, allowing the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 c and Bt 2 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb and the additional coil Lt 2 c and the magnetic fluxes Bc 2 a to Bc 2 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb to be canceled by each other. The strength of a magnetic field formed in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb is reduced. In addition, the first and second auxiliary coils Lea and Lcb are arranged not to interlink with the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr arranged to face the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb during power feeding. Thus, the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b , which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled out using the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb. Accordingly, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized with a reduction in an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. [0086] The power feeding coil unit Ltu 2 according to this embodiment further includes the additional coil Lt 2 c arranged on the opposite to the side of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb facing the power receiving coil Lr so that the center portion of the additional coil Lt 2 c is located between the center portion of the first power feeding coil Lta and the center portion of the second power feeding coil Ltb. In addition, a magnetic path interlinking the first power feeding coil Lta, the second power feeding coil Ltb, and the additional coil Lt 2 c is generated by a magnetic field of the first power feeding coil Lta, a magnetic field of the second power feeding coil Ltb, and a magnetic field of the additional coil Lt 2 c . This may further increase the density of the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a to Bt 2 d generated by the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb. Accordingly, the magnetic fluxes Bt 2 a and Bt 2 b , which contribute to power transmission, are more efficiently generated, and power transmission efficiency may thus be further increased. Third Embodiment [0087] Next, a configuration of a wireless power transmission device S 3 according to a third embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to FIG. 7 and FIG. 8 . FIG. 7 is a system configuration diagram illustrating a wireless power transmission device according to the third embodiment of the present invention together with a load. FIG. 8 is a cross-sectional view illustrating a power feeding coil unit according to the third embodiment of the present invention together with a power receiving coil. [0088] As illustrated in FIG. 7 , the wireless power transmission device S 3 includes a wireless power feeding device Ut 3 and a wireless power receiving device Ur. [0089] The wireless power feeding device Ut 3 includes a power source PW, an inverter INV, and a power feeding coil unit Ltu 3 . The configuration of the power source PW and the inverter INV is similar to that in the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to the first embodiment. The wireless power transmission device S 3 according to this embodiment is different from the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to the first embodiment in that the wireless power transmission device S 3 includes the power feeding coil unit Ltu 3 in place of the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 of the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to the first embodiment. The wireless power receiving device Ur is similar to the wireless power receiving device Ur in the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to the first embodiment. In the following, a description will be given mainly of the differences from the first embodiment. [0090] As illustrated in FIG. 7 , the power feeding coil unit Ltu 3 includes a power feeding coil Lt 3 , a first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a , and a second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b . In this embodiment, as illustrated in FIG. 7 , three coils, that is, the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b , are electrically connected in series with one another. [0091] As illustrated in FIG. 8 , the power feeding coil Lt 3 includes a magnetic core Ct 3 and a wire Wt 3 . The power feeding coil Lt 3 is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wt 3 , which is made of a Litz wire such as a copper wire or an aluminum wire, around the magnetic core Ct 3 , which is shaped into a plate or a bar. The axial direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 is perpendicular to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. The number of turns of the power feeding coil Lt 3 is appropriately set on the basis of the separation distance between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, the desired power transmission efficiency, and so forth. [0092] The first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a includes a magnetic core Cc 3 a and a wire Wc 3 a . The first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wc 3 a , which is made of a Litz wire such as a copper wire or an aluminum wire, around the magnetic core Cc 3 a , which is shaped into a plate or a bar. The axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. The configuration described above allows the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a to easily circulate also in a location away from the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. In this embodiment, the axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is perpendicular to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, and the axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is parallel to the axial direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 . In this case, the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a more facilitates the generation of a magnetic flux circulating also in a location away from the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a. [0093] In addition, the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is arranged not to interlink with a magnetic flux interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr arranged to face the power feeding coil Lt 3 during power feeding. That is, the magnetic flux contributing to power transmission is not canceled out using the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a . Thus, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. In this embodiment, as illustrated in FIG. 8 , the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is arranged on the opposite to the side of the power feeding coil Lt 3 facing the power receiving coil Lr. The arrangement described above allows the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a to easily generate a magnetic flux that enhances a magnetic field between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. That is, the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a are oriented in substantially the same direction between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. Accordingly, the magnetic flux interlinking both the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a . As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. [0094] Furthermore, the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 . Here, in this embodiment, the axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is parallel to the axial direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 . Thus, in order to make the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 , it may be sufficient that the direction of the magnetic field generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is opposite to the direction of the magnetic field generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 . That is, in a case where the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and the power feeding coil Lt 3 are wound in the same direction, it may be sufficient to electrically connect the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and the power feeding coil Lt 3 to each other so that the direction of the current flowing in the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and the direction of the current flowing in the power feeding coil Lt 3 are opposite to each other. Alternatively, in a case where the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and the power feeding coil Lt 3 are wound in opposite directions, it may be sufficient to electrically connect the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and the power feeding coil Lt 3 to each other so that the direction of the current flowing in the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and the direction of the current flowing in the power feeding coil Lt 3 are the same. In addition, the axis of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is not aligned with the axis of the power feeding coil Lt 3 . Here, the magnetic flux interlinking the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and the magnetic flux interlinking the power feeding coil Lt 3 are oriented in opposite directions. Thus, if the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a interlinks with the power feeding coil Lt 3 , the magnetic flux might cancel a magnetic flux that contributes to power transmission. In this embodiment, since the axis of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is not aligned with the axis of the power feeding coil Lt 3 , it is difficult for the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a to interlink with the power feeding coil Lt 3 . As a result, the magnetic flux interlinking both the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a . Accordingly, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. [0095] The second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b includes a magnetic core Cc 3 b and a wire Wc 3 b . The second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wc 3 b , which is made of a Litz wire such as a copper wire or an aluminum wire, around the magnetic core Cc 3 b , which is shaped into a plate or a bar. The axial direction of the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. The configuration described above allows the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b to easily circulate also in a location away from the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. In this embodiment, the axial direction of the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is perpendicular to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, and the axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is parallel to the axial direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 . In this case, the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b more facilitates the generation of a magnetic flux circulating also in a location away from the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b. [0096] In addition, the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is arranged not to interlink with a magnetic flux interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr arranged to face the power feeding coil Lt 3 during power feeding. That is, the magnetic flux contributing to power transmission is not canceled out using the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b . Thus, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. In this embodiment, as illustrated in FIG. 8 , the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is arranged on the opposite to the side of the power feeding coil Lt 3 facing the power receiving coil Lr. The arrangement described above allows the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b to easily generate a magnetic flux that enhances a magnetic field between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. That is, the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b are oriented in substantially the same direction between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. Accordingly, the magnetic flux interlinking both the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b . As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. [0097] Furthermore, the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 . Here, in this embodiment, the axial direction of the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is parallel to the axial direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 . Thus, in order to make the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 , it may be sufficient that the direction of the magnetic field generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is opposite to the direction of the magnetic field generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 . That is, in a case where the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b and the power feeding coil Lt 3 are wound in the same direction, it may be sufficient to electrically connect the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b and the power feeding coil Lt 3 to each other so that the direction of the current flowing in the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b and the direction of the current flowing in the power feeding coil Lt 3 are opposite to each other. Alternatively, in a case where the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b and the power feeding coil Lt 3 are wound in opposite directions, it may be sufficient to electrically connect the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b and the power feeding coil Lt 3 to each other so that the direction of the current flowing in the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b and the direction of the current flowing in the power feeding coil Lt 3 are the same. In addition, the axis of the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is not aligned with the axis of the power feeding coil Lt 3 . Here, the magnetic flux interlinking the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b and the magnetic flux interlinking the power feeding coil Lt 3 are oriented in opposite directions. Thus, if the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b interlinks with the power feeding coil Lt 3 , the magnetic fluX might cancel a magnetic flux that contributes to power transmission. In this embodiment, since the axis of the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is not aligned with the axis of the power feeding coil Lt 3 , it is difficult for the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b to interlink with the power feeding coil Lt 3 . As a result, the magnetic flux interlinking both the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b . Accordingly, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. [0098] In addition, as illustrated in FIG. 8 , the magnetic core Ct 3 of the power feeding coil Lt 3 is connected to each of the magnetic core Cc 3 a of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and the magnetic core Cc 3 b of the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b near either end of the surface on a side of the magnetic core Ct 3 opposite to the side of the magnetic core Ct 3 closer to the power receiving coil Lr (i.e., the lower surface in FIG. 8 ) in the opposing direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. The configuration described above allows the magnetic core Cc 3 a of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and the magnetic core Cc 3 b of the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b to be coupled to the magnetic core Ct 3 of the power feeding coil Lt 3 . Thus, the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a easily generates a magnetic flux that enhances a magnetic field between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, and the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b easily generates a magnetic flux that enhances a magnetic field between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. That is, the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the magnetic flux generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a are oriented in substantially the same direction, and the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the magnetic flux generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b are oriented in substantially the same direction between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. Accordingly, the magnetic flux interlinking both the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, which contributes to power transmission, is not canceled by the magnetic flux generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b . As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may further be prevented or minimized. [0099] The relative relationship between the magnetic flux generated by a power feeding coil and the magnetic flux generated by an auxiliary coil and the effect of reducing the unwanted leakage magnetic field in this embodiment will now be described in detail with reference to FIGS. 9A and 9B . FIG. 9A is a diagram schematically illustrating the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 in FIG. 8 . FIG. 9B is a diagram schematically illustrating the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b . In FIG. 9A , magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a to Bt 3 d are illustrated as typical magnetic fluxes generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 . In FIG. 9B , magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a to Bt 3 d are illustrated as typical magnetic fluxes generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 , and magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a to Bc 3 d are schematically illustrated as typical magnetic fluxes generated by first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b . Note that the illustrated magnetic fluxes schematically depict only the orientations of the individual magnetic fluxes, and do not depict the magnetic flux densities. In FIG. 9A and FIG. 9B , the magnetic flux in the magnetic core Ct 3 of the power feeding coil Lt 3 , the magnetic cores Cc 3 a and Cc 3 b of the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b , and the magnetic core Cr of the power receiving coil Lr is not illustrated. [0100] First, the magnetic flux generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 will be described with reference to FIG. 9A . As illustrated in FIG. 9A , the power feeding coil Lt 3 generates the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a to Bt 3 d that interlink the power feeding coil Lt 3 in the direction from the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b to the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a (i.e., horizontally leftward in FIG. 9A ). In the illustrated example, the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a to Bt 3 d generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 include magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b that interlink with the power receiving coil Lr and that contribute to power transmission, and magnetic fluxes Bt 3 c and Bt 3 d that circulate in a location away from the power feeding coil Lt 3 without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. The interlinking of the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b with the power receiving coil Lr induces an electromotive force in the wire Wr of the power receiving coil Lr. The power generated in the power receiving coil Lr is rectified by the rectifier circuit DB, and is output to the load R. The magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a to Bt 3 d generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 do not interlink with the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b , and the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b , which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled out using the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b . Thus, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. [0101] The magnetic flux generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b will now be described with reference to FIG. 9B . The magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a to Bt 3 d generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 in FIG. 9B are as illustrated in FIG. 9A . As illustrated in FIG. 9B , the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a generates magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a and Bc 3 b that interlink the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a in the direction from the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a to a center portion of the power feeding coil Lt 3 (i.e., horizontally rightward in FIG. 9B ) and that do not interlink the power feeding coil Lt 3 and circulate in the direction from the power feeding coil Lt 3 to the power receiving coil Lr (i.e., vertically upward in FIG. 9B ). Specifically, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a and Bc 3 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a circulate in a location away from the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. In particular, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is perpendicular to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a and Bc 3 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a largely circulate also in a location away from the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a . In addition, since the axis of the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a is not aligned with the axis of the power feeding coil Lt 3 , the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a and Bc 3 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a do not interlink with the power feeding coil Lt 3 . [0102] Likewise, as illustrated in FIG. 9B , the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b generates magnetic fluxes Bc 3 c and Bc 3 d that interlink the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b in the direction from the center portion of the power feeding coil Lt 3 to the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b (i.e., horizontally rightward in FIG. 9B ) and that do not interlink with the power feeding coil Lt 3 and circulate in the direction from the power receiving coil Lr to the power feeding coil Lt 3 (i.e., vertically downward in FIG. 9B ). Specifically, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 c and Bc 3 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b circulate in a location away from the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. In particular, in this embodiment, since the axial direction of the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is perpendicular to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 c and Bc 3 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b largely circulate also in a location away from the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b . In addition, since the axis of the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b is not aligned with the axis of the power feeding coil Lt 3 , the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 c and Bc 3 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b do not interlink with the power feeding coil Lt 3 . [0103] Next, the effect of reducing the unwanted leakage magnetic field in this embodiment will be described. As described above, the power feeding coil Lt 3 generates the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 c and Bt 3 d that circulate in a location away from the power feeding coil Lt 3 . The magnetic fluxes Bt 3 c and Bt 3 d do not contribute to power transmission, and become magnetic fluxes that form an unwanted leakage magnetic field around the power feeding coil Lt 3 . In this embodiment, the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a and Bc 3 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 c and Bc 3 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b are opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a to Bt 3 d generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 . Accordingly, as illustrated in FIG. 9B , the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 c and Bt 3 d generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a to Bc 3 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b are oriented in opposite directions in a location away from the power feeding coil Lt 3 . That is, the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 c and Bt 3 d generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 are canceled by the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a to Bc 3 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b in a location away from the power feeding coil Lt 3 . As a result, the unwanted leakage magnetic field may be reduced. [0104] On the other hand, the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a and Bc 3 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a are oriented in substantially the same direction in the vicinity of the power feeding coil Lt 3 . That is, the magnetic field generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a enhances a part of the magnetic field between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. In this manner, the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a and Bc 3 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a are oriented in substantially the same direction between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. Accordingly, the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b interlinking both the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled by the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a and Bc 3 b generated by the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a . As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. Similarly, the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 c and Bc 3 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b are oriented in substantially the same direction in the vicinity of the power feeding coil Lt 3 . That is, the magnetic field generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b enhances a part of the magnetic field between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. In this manner, the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 c and Bc 3 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b are oriented in substantially the same direction between the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. Accordingly, the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b interlinking both the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr, which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled by the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 c and Bc 3 d generated by the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b . As a result, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized. [0105] In this manner, the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a to Bc 3 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b do not cancel the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b that is generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and are interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr, and the magnetic flux Bc 3 a to Bc 3 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b cancel the magnetic flux Bt 3 c and Bt 3 d that is generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and is not interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. This may prevent or minimize a reduction in power transmission efficiency while reducing an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the power feeding coil Lt 3 . [0106] In the manner described above, in the power feeding coil unit Ltu 3 according to this embodiment, the axial direction of the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b is nonparallel to the opposing direction of the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the power receiving coil Lr. This allows the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a to Bc 3 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b to easily circulate also in a location away from the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b without interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr. In this state, the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a to Bc 3 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b is opposite to the direction of circulation of the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a to Bt 3 d generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 . In locations away from the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b , which are magnetic flux generators, the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 c and Bt 3 d generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a to Bc 3 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b are oriented in opposite directions, allowing the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 c and Bt 3 d generated by the power feeding coil Lt 3 and the magnetic fluxes Bc 3 a to Bc 3 d generated by the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b to be canceled by each other. The strength of a magnetic field formed in a location away from the power feeding coil Lt 3 is reduced. In addition, the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b are arranged not to interlink with the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b interlinking with the power receiving coil Lr arranged to face the power feeding coil Lt 3 during power feeding. Thus, the magnetic fluxes Bt 3 a and Bt 3 b , which contribute to power transmission, are not canceled out using the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b . Accordingly, a reduction in power transmission efficiency may be prevented or minimized with a reduction in an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from the power feeding coil Lt 3 . [0107] Hereinafter, advantages achievable with the exemplary embodiments disclosed herein, which prevent or minimize a reduction in power transmission efficiency while reducing an unwanted leakage magnetic field formed in a location away from a power feeding coil, will be specifically described with reference to Examples 1 and 2 and Comparative Examples 1 to 4. [0108] In Example 1, the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to the first embodiment described above was used. In Example 2, the wireless power transmission device S 3 according to the third embodiment described above was used. In Comparative Example 1, for comparison with Example 1 in terms of characteristics, a wireless power transmission device configured such that the wireless power transmission device S 1 according to the first embodiment does not include an auxiliary coil was used. In Comparative Example 2, for comparison with Example 1 in terms of characteristics, a wireless power transmission device configured such that noise canceling coils Ln 20 a and Ln 20 b that interlink with a magnetic flux created by a power feeding coil are added to Comparative Example 1 was used. In Comparative Example 3, for comparison with Example 2 in terms of characteristics, a wireless power transmission device configured such that the wireless power transmission device S 3 according to the third embodiment does not include an auxiliary coil was used. In Comparative Example 4, for comparison with Example 2 in terms of characteristics, a wireless power transmission device configured such that a noise canceling coil Ln 40 that interlinks with a magnetic flux created by a power feeding coil is added to Comparative Example 3 was used. [0109] First, the configuration of a power feeding coil unit Ltu 10 and a power receiving coil. Lr 10 in the wireless power transmission device in Comparative Example 1 will be described with reference to FIG. 10 . FIG. 10 is a cross-sectional view illustrating the power feeding coil unit in Comparative Example 1 together with a power receiving coil. The power feeding coil unit Ltu 10 includes a magnetic body F 10 and first and second power feeding coils Lt 10 a and Lt 10 b . Each of the first and second power feeding coils Lt 10 a and Lt 10 b is a planar-shaped spiral coil having a substantially rectangular shape. The first power feeding coil Lt 10 a is formed by winding a wire Wt 10 a around a first magnetic core Ct 10 a , and the second power feeding coil Lt 10 b is formed by winding a wire Wt 10 b around a second magnetic core Ct 10 b . The magnetic cores Ct 10 a and Ct 10 b are connected to each other through the magnetic body F 10 . That is, the power feeding coil unit Ltu 10 in Comparative Example 1 is equivalent to a configuration in which the first auxiliary coil Lca and the second auxiliary coil Lcb are excluded from the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 of the wireless power transmission device S 1 in Example 1. The power receiving coil Lr 10 is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by winding a wire Wr 10 around a magnetic core Cr 10 shaped into a plate or a bar. The power receiving coil Lr 10 in Comparative Example 1 is similar to the power receiving coil Lr in the wireless power transmission device S 1 in Example 1. [0110] Next, the configuration of a power feeding coil unit Ltu 20 and a power receiving coil Lr 10 in the wireless power transmission device in Comparative Example 2 will be described with reference to FIG. 11 . FIG. 11 is a cross-sectional view illustrating the power feeding coil unit in Comparative Example 2 together with a power receiving coil. The power feeding coil unit Ltu 20 includes a magnetic body F 10 , first and second power feeding coils Lt 10 a and Lt 10 b , and first and second noise canceling coils Ln 20 a and Ln 20 b . The power feeding coil unit Ltu 20 in Comparative Example 2 is equivalent to a configuration in which the first and second noise canceling coils Ln 20 a and Ln 20 b are added to the power feeding coil unit Ltu 10 in Comparative Example 1. Each of the first and second noise canceling coils Ln 20 a and Ln 20 b is a planar-shaped spiral coil having a substantially rectangular shape. As illustrated in FIG. 11 , the power feeding coil unit Ltu 20 is configured such that a wire Wn 20 a of the first noise canceling coil Ln 20 a is wound around the magnetic core Ct 10 a between the first power feeding coil Lt 10 a and the magnetic body F 10 , and a wire Wn 20 b of the second noise canceling coil Ln 20 b is wound around the magnetic core Ct 10 b between the second power feeding coil Lt 10 b and the magnetic body F 10 . The configuration described above allows the first and second noise canceling coils Ln 20 a and Ln 20 b to interlink with a magnetic flux created by the first and second power feeding coils Lt 10 a and Lt 10 b . Here, the first and second noise canceling coils Ln 20 a and Ln 20 b are wound in a direction opposite to the direction in which the first and second power feeding coils Lt 10 a and Lt 10 b are wound. In addition, the power receiving coil Lr 10 is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wr 10 around the magnetic core Cr 10 , which is shaped into a plate or a bar. The power receiving coil Lr 10 in Comparative Example 2 is similar to the power receiving coil Lr in Example 1. [0111] Next, the configuration of a power feeding coil unit Ltu 30 and a power receiving coil Lr 10 in the wireless power transmission device in Comparative Example 3 will be described with reference to FIG. 12 . FIG. 12 is a cross-sectional view illustrating the power feeding coil unit in Comparative Example 2 together with a power receiving coil. The power feeding coil unit Ltu 30 in Comparative Example 3 includes a power feeding coil Lt 30 . The power feeding coil Lt 30 is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by, as illustrated in FIG. 12 , winding a wire Wt 30 around a magnetic core Ct 30 . The power feeding coil unit Ltu 30 in Comparative Example 3 is equivalent to a configuration in which the first auxiliary coil Lc 3 a and the second auxiliary coil Lc 3 b are excluded from the power feeding coil unit Ltu 3 of the wireless power transmission device S 3 in Example 2. The power receiving coil Lr 10 is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wr 10 around the magnetic core Cr 10 , which is shaped into a plate or a bar. The power receiving coil Lr 10 in Comparative Example 3 is similar to the power receiving coil Lr in Example 2. [0112] Next, the configuration of a power feeding coil unit Ltu 40 and a power receiving coil Lr 10 in the wireless power transmission device in Comparative Example 4 will be described with reference to FIG. 13 . FIG. 13 is a cross-sectional view illustrating the power feeding coil unit in Comparative Example 2 together with a power receiving coil. The power feeding coil unit Ltu 40 includes a power feeding coil Lt 40 and a noise canceling coil Ln 40 . The power feeding coil unit Ltu 40 in Comparative Example 4 is equivalent to a configuration in which the noise canceling coil Ln 40 is added to the power feeding coil unit Ltu 30 in Comparative Example 3. The noise canceling coil Ln 40 is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is configured such that, as illustrated in FIG. 13 , a wire Wn 40 of the noise canceling coil Ln 40 is wound around the magnetic core Ct 30 and a wire Wt 40 of the power feeding coil Lt 40 is further wound on the outer surface of the noise canceling coil Ln 40 . The configuration described above allows the noise canceling coil Ln 40 to interlink with a magnetic flux created by the power feeding coil Lt 40 . Here, the noise canceling coil Ln 40 is wound in a direction opposite to the direction in which the power feeding coil Lt 40 is wound. The power receiving coil Lr 10 is a solenoid coil wound in a helical shape, and is formed by winding the wire Wr 10 around the magnetic core Cr 10 , which is shaped into a plate or a bar. The power receiving coil Lr 10 in Comparative Example 4 is similar to the power receiving coil Lr in Example 2. [0113] Here, in Examples 1 and 2 and Comparative Examples 1 to 4, a Litz wire with a diameter of approximately 6 mm which is formed by twisting approximately 4000 polyimide-coated copper wires each having a diameter of 0.05 mm was used for each of the wires Wta, Wtb, Wt 10 a , and Wt 10 b of the first and second power feeding coils Lta, Ltb, Lt 10 a , and Lt 10 b , the wires Wt 3 , Wt 30 , and Wt 40 of the power feeding coils Lt 3 a , Lt 30 , and Lt 40 , the wires Wca, Wcb, Wc 3 a , and Wc 3 b of the first and second auxiliary coils Lca, Lcb, Lc 3 a , and Lc 3 b , the wires Wn 20 a and Wn 20 b of the first and second noise canceling coils Ln 20 a and Ln 20 b , the wire Wn 40 of the noise canceling coil Ln 40 , and the wires Wr and Wr 10 of the power receiving coils Lr and Lr 10 . In addition, ferrite cores of the same material (with a relative magnetic permeability of approximately 3000) were used for the magnetic cores Cta, Ctb, Ctl 0 a , and Ct 10 b of the first and second power feeding coils Lta, Ltb, Lt 10 a , and Lt 10 b , the magnetic cores Ct 3 and Ct 30 of the power feeding coils Lt 3 , Lt 30 , and Lt 40 , the magnetic cores Cca, Ccb, Cc 3 a , and Cc 3 b of the first and second auxiliary coils Lca, Lcb, Lc 3 a , and Lc 3 b , the magnetic bodies F 1 and F 10 , and the magnetic cores Cr and Cr 10 of the power receiving coils Lr and Lr 10 . [0114] Furthermore, in the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 in Example 1, the magnetic body F 1 having a length of 300 mm, a width of 300 mm, and a thickness of 15 mm, the magnetic cores Cta and Ctb of the first and second power feeding coils Lta and Ltb each having a length of 100 mm, a width of 300 mm, and a thickness of 24 mm, the magnetic cores Cca and Ccb of the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb each having a length of 40 mm, a width of 300 mm, and a thickness of 15 mm, and the magnetic core Cr of the power receiving coil Lr having a length of 300 mm, a width of 300 mm, and a thickness of 10 mm were used. In the power feeding coil unit Ltu 10 in Comparative Example 1 and the power feeding coil unit Ltu 20 in Comparative Example 2, the magnetic body F 10 having a length of 300 mm, a width of 300 mm, and a thickness of 15 mm, the magnetic cores Ct 10 a and Ct 10 b of the first and second power feeding coils Lt 10 a and Lt 10 b each having a length of 100 mm, a width of 300 mm, and a thickness of 24 mm, and the magnetic core Cr 10 of the power receiving coil Lr 10 having a length of 300 mm, a width of 300 mm, and a thickness of 10 mm were used. [0115] Moreover, the number of turns of each coil in Example 1 and Comparative Examples 1 and 2 was set in accordance with Table 1 below. [0000] TABLE 1 Number of turns Comparative Comparative Example 1 Example 1 Example 1 First and second 10 turns × 2 10 turns × 2 10 turns × 2 power feeding coils First and second  5 turns × 2 No coil No coil auxiliary coils First and second No coil No coil  5 turns × 2 noise canceling coils Power receiving 10 turns 10 turns 10 turns coil [0116] In the power feeding coil unit Ltu 3 in Example 2, the magnetic core Ct 3 of the power feeding coil Lt 3 having a length of 300 mm, a width of 300 mm, and a thickness of 15 mm, the magnetic cores Cc 3 a and Cc 3 b of the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b each having a length of 60 mm, a width of 300 mm, and a thickness of 15 mm, and the magnetic core Cr of the power receiving coil Lr having a length of 300 mm, a width of 300 mm, and a thickness of 10 mm were used. In the power feeding coil unit Ltu 30 in Comparative Example 3 and the power feeding coil unit Ltu 40 in Comparative Example 4, the magnetic core Ct 30 of the power feeding coils Lt 30 and Lt 40 having a length of 300 mm, a width of 300 mm, and a thickness of 15 mm, and the magnetic core Cr 10 of the power receiving coil Lr 10 having a length of 300 mm, a width of 300 mm, a thickness of 10 mm were used. [0117] In addition, the number of turns of each coil in Example 2 and Comparative Examples 3 and 4 was set in accordance with Table 2 below. [0000] TABLE 2 Number of turns Comparative Comparative Example 2 Example 3 Example 4 Power feeding 20 turns 20 turns 20 turns coil First and second 10 turns × 2 No coil No coil auxiliary coils Noise canceling No coil No coil 20 turns coil Power receiving 10 turns 10 turns 10 turns coil [0118] In each of Examples 1 and 2 and Comparative Examples 1 to 4, the distance between the power feeding coil unit and the power receiving coil was set to 150 mm. [0119] Then, in Examples 1 and 2 and Comparative Examples 1 to 4, the power transmission efficiency and the unwanted leakage magnetic field were measured. This measurement was conducted with no displacement of the power receiving coil, that is, with the distance between the power feeding coil unit and the power receiving coil being kept at 150 mm while the distance between the center of the power receiving coil and the center of the power feeding coil unit was also 150 mm. The supply power of the power source PW was adjusted so that the power to be supplied to the load R became equal to kW. [0120] The power transmission efficiency was measured as follows: The efficiency between the power feeding coil unit and the power receiving coil was calculated by measuring the power supplied from the power source PW and the power supplied to the load R while taking into account the loss at the inverter INV and the loss at the rectifier circuit DB, which were measured in advance. [0121] The unwanted leakage magnetic field was determined using, as an index, the magnetic field strength at a position 10 m away from the center of the power feeding coil unit. A loop antenna was placed at a position 10 m away from the center of the power feeding coil unit in the axial direction of the power receiving coil to measure a magnetic field strength. Here, the loop antenna was used to measure the magnetic field strengths in three orthogonal directions (x, Y, and Z directions), and the magnetic field strengths were combined to calculate a leakage magnetic field strength. Note that the power feeding coil unit was placed at a height of 500 mm from the floor surface with a power transmitting surface thereof facing upward, and the power receiving coil was placed above the power feeding coil unit with an interval of 150 mm between them. In addition, the loop antenna was placed in such a manner that the center of the loop antenna was positioned at a height of 1.5 m from the floor of a radio-frequency (RF) anechoic chamber. [0122] The results of measurement are illustrated in FIGS. 14 and 15 . FIG. 14 depicts the results of the measurement in Example 1 and Comparative Examples 1 and 2, and FIG. 15 depicts the results of the measurement in Example 2 and Comparative Examples 3 and 4. In FIGS. 14 and 15 , bar graphs depict power transmission efficiency, and line graphs depict leakage magnetic field strength. [0123] First, the results of the measurement in Example 1 and Comparative Examples 1 and 2 will be examined. As illustrated in FIG. 14 , compared to Comparative Example 1, Example 1 exhibits substantially equal power transmission efficiency and lower leakage magnetic field strength. In addition, Example 1 exhibits higher power transmission efficiency and lower leakage magnetic field strength than Comparative Example 2. That is, the auxiliary coil in Example 1 (i.e., the first and second auxiliary coils Lca and Lcb) does not cancel out a magnetic flux contributing to power transmission, and thus a reduction in power transmission efficiency is prevented, compared to Comparative Example 1 in which no auxiliary coil is provided. [0124] Specifically, it is contemplated that Joule heating generated by a small parasitic resistance of the auxiliary coil will have caused a slight increase in loss. In Example 1, furthermore, the auxiliary coil cancels out a magnetic flux that formed the unwanted leakage magnetic field, and thus the leakage magnetic field strength is significantly reduced, compared to Comparative Example 1 in which no auxiliary coil is provided. In Comparative Example 2, in contrast, it is contemplated that both the power transmission efficiency and the leakage magnetic field strength will have been reduced by the noise canceling coil (i.e., the first and second noise canceling coils Ln 20 a and Ln 20 b ) canceling out both a magnetic flux that contributes to power transmission and a magnetic flux that forms the unwanted leakage magnetic field. In the manner described above, it has been found that the power feeding coil unit Ltu 1 in Example 1 is capable of preventing or minimizing a reduction in power transmission efficiency while reducing the unwanted leakage magnetic field. [0125] The results of the measurement in Example 2 and Comparative Examples 3 and 4 will now be examined. As illustrated in FIG. 15 , compared to Comparative Example 3, Example 2 exhibits substantially equal power transmission efficiency and lower leakage magnetic field strength. In addition, compared to Comparative Example 4, Example 2 exhibits higher power transmission efficiency and substantially equal leakage magnetic field strength. The auxiliary coil in Example 2 (i.e., the first and second auxiliary coils Lc 3 a and Lc 3 b ) does not cancel out a magnetic flux contributing to power transmission, and thus a reduction in power transmission efficiency is prevented, compared to Comparative Example 3 in which no auxiliary coil is provided. Specifically, it is contemplated that Joule heating generated by a small parasitic resistance of the auxiliary coil will have caused a slight increase in loss. In Example 2, furthermore, the auxiliary coil cancels out a magnetic flux that forms the unwanted leakage magnetic field, and thus the leakage magnetic field strength is significantly reduced, compared to Comparative Example 3 in which no auxiliary coil is provided. In Comparative Example 4, in contrast, it is contemplated that both the power transmission efficiency and the leakage magnetic field strength will have been reduced by the noise canceling coil (the noise canceling coil Ln 40 ) canceling out both a magnetic flux that contributes to power transmission and a magnetic flux that forms the unwanted leakage magnetic field. In the manner described above, it has been found that the power feeding coil unit Ltu 3 in Example 2 is capable of preventing or minimizing a reduction in power transmission efficiency while reducing the unwanted leakage magnetic field. Accordingly, the effectiveness of the embodiments disclosed herein has been demonstrated. [0126] The present invention has been described with reference to some embodiments thereof. Such embodiments are illustrative, and it is to be understood by a person skilled in the art that various modifications and changes can be made within the scope of the present invention and that such modifications and changes also fall within the scope of the present invention. Accordingly, the description given herein and the drawings taken in conjunction therewith are to be illustrative but not restrictive.
