Original Abstract

This contribution describes a development of a fast-charger for an electric vehicle. Useful modular conception of the power part was chosen. The modules can be serial-parallel reconfigured - for various battery voltage levels. Single-module output parameters are 160 V/16 kW. The charger is based on a DC/DC transistor converter using Cool-MOS transistors and SiC diodes. A non-usual topology of the power circuit is performed. High switching frequency is used at the large output power (80 kHz -16 kW). This way the dimensions of the device are minimised.
