Training: Overview of power conversion topologies for EV DC chargers
This training serves as a preparation for the upcoming live webinar "Demystifying isolated gate drivers in DC EV fast charging applications" taking place on May 31.
ABOUT THIS TRAINING
In DC EV Charging systems there are two main building blocks: The AC/DC and isolated DC/DC power conversion systems. Supporting V2G or V2H these topologies need to operate bidirectional in the future. Solution size and high efficiency are driving the need to move from 2-level topologies to multi-level topologies. In this presentation most common 3-level topologies for PFC/Inverter conversion system (AC/DC) are presented and basic operation principles are explained and compared.
In this training, you will learn:
- Why move from a 2-level topology to a 3 level topology
- Overview on most common PFC/Inverter stages
- Operating principle of 3L T-Type, 3L ANPC, 3L NPC and 3L Flying Capacitor converter
