Best Practices

Tiny Power Box

The project focuses on optimising the power density of chargers built into electric vehicles (onboard chargers). The aim is to reduce weight, save on components and space, boost the power density by a factor of 4, achieve maximum efficiency in fast charging, and enhance environmental compatibility. The intent is to develop highly compact, bidirectional 7- and 11-kW inverters as onboard chargers for e-mobility applications.
