The power quality of EV charging


Electric vehicles (EVs) play a crucial role in the energy transition and the global carbon-neutral program. To make EVs’ refueling experience comparable with fossil fuel cars, the power rating and the number of EV chargers connected to the electric grid are increasing quickly. Power quality issues associated with EV charging have already been reported. There will be much more EV chargers connected to the grid in the future. How can we ensure a power quality issue-free EV charging?
This talk will discuss EV charging power quality issues, analysis approaches, and mitigation measures.
