Improving power density, efficiency and cost for high voltage DC/DC modules and onboard chargers


September 10, 2019

This is an archived webinar from May 15, 2018.

When it comes to design and manufacturing of Electric Vehicles, the goal of auto OEMs is to provide a customer ownership experience that meets or exceeds Internal Combustion Engine (ICE)-based cars today. This means:

  • maximizing the drive distance per single charge
  • increasing power throughput to deliver faster charging
  • increasing power density to reduce the size and weight of modules due to limited space in the vehicle

In this webinar we will be reviewing certain implementations of advanced power topologies such as totem pole PFC, Vienna Rectifier, and Resonant LLC converters to provide power efficiencies in electric vehicles. These are popular topologies that power electronic designers are leveraging today in order to help auto OEMs achieve their design goals for on-board charging systems, high voltage DCDC converters, and EVSE charger systems. In this webinar we will be looking at:

  • Power topologies to implement high efficiency and high power density on-board chargers
  • Microcontroller system architectures for on-board chargers
  • New Texas Instruments reference designs that leverage SiC and GaN for improved power density
