Topologies in On-Board Charging: Semiconductor Recommendations for Reliable Charging Solutions
As electric vehicles grow in popularity, so does the demand for highly reliable and long-lasting battery performance. On-board chargers (OBCs) are an essential system for plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles, and the attractiveness of electro-mobility stands and falls by the batteries. Advancements in semiconductor technologies are required to achieve higher efficiencies and top performance, making electric vehicles a convenient and eco-friendly alternative for traditional means of transportation. Battery performance and durability are also highly dependent on charging technologies and methods.
Learn about the system architecture and possible topologies for on-board charging, as well as the recommendations for the right choice of power semiconductors for OBCs in this whitepaper from Infineon Technologies. This resource also takes an in-depth look into onboard charging, discusses the system architecture, and elaborates on the possible topologies for the PFC and the DC-DC stages.
