Charged EVs | Delta Electronics demonstrates 400 kW solid-state transformer-based EV charger


Delta Electronics (Americas) demonstrated a next-generation SiC MOSFET solid-state transformer-based 400 kW EV charger at a current occasion attended by representatives of mission companions GM, DTE Vitality and NextEnergy.

Delta’s “excessive quick” EV charger makes use of a three-phase 13.8 kV medium-voltage SiC MOSFET SST topology. It offers 500 A of charging present, and the corporate claims grid-to-vehicle power effectivity as excessive as 96.5%.

Delta says its next-generation SST know-how provides “important capabilities for sensible grid functions, corresponding to reactive energy compensation for voltage stabilization and improved energy high quality.” The brand new charger’s HVDC energy structure “permits reference to renewable power and power storage techniques.”

“Delta constantly develops ground-breaking applied sciences and fosters long-lasting relationships with companions,” mentioned Kelvin Huang, President of Delta Electronics (Americas). “That is how Delta, a member of the RE100 and EV100 initiatives, has been in a position to ship greater than 1.5 million EV chargers worldwide over the previous decade.”

“A key facet of the brand new know-how is the flexibility to attach on to medium-voltage distribution and supply sooner, extra environment friendly charging in comparison with lower-voltage chargers,” mentioned Richard Mueller, DTE Vitality Know-how, Requirements and Interconnection Supervisor. “This mission will give DTE and its mission companions vital perception into how these quick chargers could be built-in safely, reliably and with ever-growing numbers into the grid.”
