Abstract

The goal of this project was to design, build, and test a universal input electric vehicle battery charger with unity power factor and wide range, 2.0 kW output. A pair of microprocessors control all functions of the charger,a major feature which provides adaptability to a wide spectrum of battery chemistries and configurations. Further features of the unit include electrical isolation and efficiencies up to 85%. Experimental results agreed well with simulations.
