The ultra-fast charger for electric vehicles (EVs) has been launched at Hannover Messe, by power and thermal management solutions company, Delta Electronics. The system is capable of charging as many as four vehicles simultaneously.
It complies with CCS-200A, CHAdeMO-125A, as well as Type2-63A and Type2-32A, open to practically all EVs. It provides output power of up to 150kW DC and up to 65kW AC, significantly improving charge times. For optimising the cost of the necessary infrastructure to power all upcoming EVs with larger batteries and higher charge power capacity up to 150kW DC, the ultra-fast charger is equipped with a dynamic power split function to avoid overinvestment in infrastructure for the today´s EV demand.
Jackie Chang, president, Delta EMEA, commented that the new charging solution is proof of Delta’s commitment to developing innovative technologies that support the drive towards sustainability. “This is a promise we reassured at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference and through our strong focus on R&D and leadership in energy efficiency, we can help mitigate climate change.”
Prototyping and industrialisation of the ultra-fast charger have been completed and the first charging stations are currently being made available to local EV users in Norway and other European countries.
Delta industrialised a brand new ultra-fast EV charger, featuring:
Several EV brands have announced the development of vehicles with significantly larger battery capacity, coming to the market within the next couple of years. The typical low power AC charging of the EVs is a good option during the comparatively long hours of parking at home during night time or at work. Long driving distances, however, would require a worldwide system that allows all EV models to recharge at rapid speed - significantly faster than what is possible with today’s standard chargers, which are typically limited to an output of 50kW or less.
