SolarEdge unveiled a bidirectional DC-coupled electrical automobile (EV) charger at Intersolar Europe, which takes place this week in Munich, Germany.
The Israel-based inverter maker’s DC-coupled structure permits for simultaneous EV charging straight from photo voltaic, house battery storage, and the grid. The charger is related to single- or three-phase inverters via a DC bus circuit that may be over 200%, enabling EV charging with extra PV. The charger has a cost/discharge fee of 12/24 kW and a peak effectivity of DC to DC of 99%.
The brand new charger permits solar-powered vehicle-to-home (V2H) and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) providers. Will probably be commercially accessible within the second half of 2024.
V2G functions allow automated EV battery charging and discharging based mostly on dynamic utility pricing. This enables owners to obtain funds from their electrical energy provider by discharging saved EV battery energy again into the grid throughout demand response occasions.
As well as, customers can use the EV battery to again up their properties throughout outages, indicating a V2H utility. The battery has a capability of as much as 50 kWh.
“The charger will likely be appropriate with 400V and 800V EV powertrains via a regular CSS connector,” Photo voltaic Edge stated in an announcement.
The gadget measures 620 mm x 340 mm x 200 mm, weighs 22 kg, and has a 7 meter cable. It might function in temperatures from -30 C to 50 C and has an IP-65 rated enclosure for indoor and out of doors use.
