Battery Chargers for Electric Vehicles (from Scooters to Trucks)

Tuesday, June 18, 2024 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The role of power electronics in supporting green electrification has never been more critical. Today, there are many categories of electric vehicles (EVs), spanning a wide range of applications, including electric scooters, electric bicycles (e-bikes), and electric motorcycles for urban commuting and recreation. Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEVs) are used for short trips within urban areas. Passenger electric cars, both fully electric and hybrid, are designed for everyday use. Electric vans cater to urban deliveries, while electric buses serve public transportation needs. Electric trucks are used in logistics for heavy loads. Electric utility vehicles (EUVs) support agriculture and industrial applications, and electric forklifts are common in warehouses for material handling. This talk will discuss battery charger technology to support the deployment and acceleration of green electrification and transportation. From small to large applications, what technology would you use and why?
