  • On-board bidirectional battery chargers topologies for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles

    Over the last years, Electric Vehicles (EV) have gained a growing interest as an alternative option for Internal Combustion Engine driven vehicles due to the increasing concern of global warming issue. Since the battery is the key component in the development of electric vehicles technology, the battery charger is also indispensable for their emergence. Typically battery chargers are composed of two stages of conversion and they can be implemented inside (on-board) or outside (off-board) the vehicle. The on-board chargers are limited by size and weight thus they are restricted to low power (slow charging). So to achieve high power level (fast charging) several integration solutions with the existent drivetrain in the vehicle have been proposed. Battery chargers can support bidirectional power flow between the vehicle and the grid which introduces “Vehicle-to-Grid” technology. This paper presents an overview of on-board bidirectional battery chargers. Different topologies for both two-stage chargers and integrated chargers are reported and their operation principals are explained.

  • Proportional resonant controllers in on-board battery chargers for electric transportation

    A Power Factor Correction (PFC) converter comprises the initial stage of a grid connected on-board battery charger for electric vehicles. Generally, the control scheme for the nested PFC converter consists of two Proportional Integral (PI) controllers for maintaining the input current and the intermediate DC voltage respectively. The problem with the PI current controller is its inability to track the reference sine wave signal when there is a sudden change in load, which introduces the harmonic distortions at the input current. To overcome these issues, this paper proposes the design of a Proportional Resonant (PR) current controller for the front-end rectifier in a universal battery charger. A 1 kW PFC converter with PR controller under different load conditions is simulated and presented in this paper.

  • Inner supply data transmission of resonant flyback converters using multiplexing mode in battery chargers application

    This paper proposes data transmission method in flyback converter battery charger without additional communication circuit. A battery management system (BMS) and a charger constantly transmit and receive data for the safe operation of battery and implementation of fast charging. The most conventional system uses an additional line or wireless communication modules for this data transmission. The proposed system, in comparison, does not use additional signal transceiver but instead exchanges data by alternating operation mode of the flyback converter, thus reducing the volume of the terminal and overall system. The waveform of transformer voltage is used to count the number of resonant pulses, which is used for decoding and encoding the message. Bidirectional communication between input and output is possible using an appropriate communication protocol. The experimental results are presented to verify the performance of the proposed communication method.

  • Developing programmable multi-chemistry battery chargers for common power electronic topologies using a hybrid PWM controller

Common and popular battery-charger topologies, such as Buck, Flyback, SEPIC and Cuk', will be used as examples. Using this method, accurate constant voltage and charge current can be achieved with all topologies via a common firmware platform and a highly integrated hybrid PWM controller.

  • Host emulator for next generation battery chargers

    A modern portable computer, netbook, smartphone or camera is powered by a smart battery. This is a device containing one or more Lithium cells, protection circuits and a power management circuit, interfaced by a two wire SMBus interface [1]. The need for higher efficiency and longer battery life has pushed the technology of the smart battery forward, for higher efficiency, smaller component count and more integrated functions controlled by internal registers. The internal registers are written and read via SMBus. A charger is evaluated by the test engineers and presented to the customers by the field application engineers on a demonstrator board which emulates the conditions found in a real system. The charger also needs a SMBus Master [2]. This paper presents a host emulator integrated in the demonstrator board, together with a Windows interface for accessing the internal registers.

  • A New Robust Control Strategy for Multistage PV Battery Chargers

    This manuscript presents a new overall control strategy for a standalone photovoltaic (PV) battery charging system. The battery can be regarded as an energy storage element in the system for reliable operation, or it can be considered as the load itself while being charged from null to full. The charger consists of a boost converter followed by a buck converter that charges the battery. The two converters are interfaced using a dc link capacitor that can be a super capacitor for increased energy buffer capability and to meet power spikes needed by the load. Traditionally, the boost converter is controlled to achieve maximum power point tracking (MPPT), while the output voltage of the boost converter is regulated by the buck converter, which connects to the battery. In this paper, a coordinated control strategy for the two converters is proposed and implemented to achieve multi-objective performance. When the optimal charging power is less than the offered maximum PV power, a power-matching control mode is initiated to keep the charging process smooth. In this mode of operation, the dc link voltage will be kept constant. When the PV maximum input power is less than the battery optimal charging power, the system shifts into MPPT control. In this paper, the dc link voltage information is used to guide the entire supervisory control system. By offering a range of voltage variation across the de link capacitor, the system can ride through fast shading or partial shading dynamics, which stabilizes the charging process in such normally occurring environmental conditions. Simulation results show the performance of the proposed control strategy.

  • IEEE Standard for Qualification of Class 1E Static Battery Chargers and Inverters for Nuclear Power Generating Stations

    This standard describes methods for qualifying static battery chargers and inverters for Class 1E installations in environmentally controlled areas outside containment in nuclear power generating stations. For the purpose of this standard, battery chargers and inverters must perform their intended function under specified service conditions. The demonstration that an installed battery charger or inverter will meet its design specification requires many steps in a program of design, fabrication, quality control, qualification, installation, maintenance, and periodic testing. This standard treats only the qualification area of this program. The result may provide a basis for determination of long term maintenance requirements. Qualification may be accomplished in several ways: type testing, operating experience, or analysis.<<ETX>>
