The onboard charger (OBC) is the system built into the car to recharge the high-voltage battery from the AC grid while the vehicle is parked. Higher driving ranges of plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and battery electric (BEV) vehicles are realized by increasing the battery capacity and the energy efficiency of the electric components. The used battery voltage classes tend to become standardized at approx. 450 V with a trend towards higher voltages, as this supports faster charging times and enables lighter cabling within the vehicle.
Using the On-Board Charger (OBC), you can charge the battery from AC power at home or at an outlet at a private or public charging station. From 3.6 kW single-phase to 22 kW three-phase high-power converters, today's onboard chargers (OBCs) must have the highest efficiency and reliability to ensure fast charging and meet limited space and weight requirements.
