Based on today’s global challenges of decarbonization combined with increasing demand for energy, we will take a look at bidirectional electric vehicle (EV) charging and how semiconductor solutions address this application. We will start by taking a brief look at EV charging trends that have an impact on semiconductor and how bidirectional charging plays a role in specific applications. To do this, we will explain the different use cases for bidirectional charging and their basic requirements.

Building on this, we will focus on the importance of semiconductors for off-board charging solutions, in particular typical power conversion topologies for PFCs and DC/DCs and their suitability for bidirectional charging. In this context, an implementation example based on the new Infineon 50-kW reference design for bidirectional charging is presented. Before we turn our attention to the vehicle side in the form of the on-board charger (OBC), other requirements for semiconductor solutions beyond power conversion will be addressed. Finally, this webinar will be rounded off by an overview of suitable Infineon products for EV charging applications.

What you will learn by attending:

  • Learn how bidirectional charging is part of the answer to today's global challenges of decarbonization and increasing energy demand
  • Get an overview of power conversion topologies for bidirectional DC charging
