Taking charge of electric vehicles

Taking charge of electric vehicles
A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) requires a power electronic system between the power grid and the high-voltage battery pack located inside the vehicle. This electronic system is split into two parts: a charging station, which is also called electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE) or an off-board charger, and an onboard charger inside the vehicle.
