EV charging systems are rapidly maturing, leveraging DC fast charging with the latest in electrical protection solutions.
Now that the latest Electric Vehicles (EVs) are exhibiting operational ranges that are more acceptable to the general public, the attention has shifted to battery charging times. These EVs are using the latest in wide-bandgap semiconductor solutions and power topologies, with system voltages often well over several hundred volts. EV charging systems are migrating rapidly in the direction of DC-based 50kW to 350kW or even up to Megawatt charging power solutions, which can reduce charging times to under a half-hour.
This brief white paper provides an overview of the following:
- Addressing higher voltages in DC Fast Charging applications
- Next generation contactors and fuses
Learn more about advanced electrical protection solutions that can address DC fast charging demands in this white paper.
