Dual active bridge DC:DC power stage for a level 3 (fast) EV charging station (pile)
This video provides an overview of our new reference design, implementing a single-phase dual active bridge (DAB) DC/DC converter. A DAB topology offers several advantages, such as soft-switching commutations, a decreased number of devices and high efficiency. Our design is beneficial where power density, cost, weight, galvanic isolation, high voltage conversion ratio and reliability are critical factors, making it ideal for EV charging stations and energy storage applications. Modularity and symmetrical structure in a DAB allow you to stack converters to achieve high power throughput and facilitate a bi-directional mode of operation to support battery charging and discharging applications.
