In the United States, there are now more than three million EVs on the road and over 132,000 public EV chargers across the country. The Edison Electric Institute estimates that by 2030, the number of EVs will exceed 18 million, and the U.S. has a set goal of half of all new vehicle sales in 2030 to be EVs. In Europe, adoption in many countries is occurring at an even faster rate. Norway has set a goal of all new vehicles sold in 2025 to be electric.
All of these vehicles will need access to charging facilities, whether at home, at work, at play, or while traveling. While EV charger technology is evolving rapidly, there are certain electrical basics that will always be needed in order to properly design the power supplies to these chargers. This 1-hour webinar takes an in-depth look at the options for providing power to these stations at an assortment of locations, including a look at many of the various Code requirements for proper design and installation. All three levels of charging are considered, with a close look at charging voltages, currents, power, and charging times. Single phase and 3-phase supply systems are discussed along with some of the control, communication, and metering options currently available.
