Integrated chargers for EV's and PHEV's: examples and new solutions
Paper in proceedings, 2010

The battery is an important component in an electric vehicle (EV) or a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) and it should be charged from the grid in a cost efficient, preferably fast and definitely safe way. The charger could be an on board or an off board charger. For an on board charger it is possible to use available hardware of the traction system, mainly the inverter and the electric motor, in the charger circuit. This is called an integrated charger. In this paper, different examples of integrated chargers are reviewed and explained. Additionally, other possible solutions of integrated chargers are described.
