Guest from Poland speaks about converters in electric vehicle charging

Important | 2021-10-25

On the 20th of October, the KTU Faculty of Electric and Electronics Engineering was visited by professor Jerzy Szymański from Poland. He represents the faculty of Transport and Electrical Engineering in Kazimierz Pułaski University of Technology and Humanities in Radom. Our guest arrived to our faculty to read a lecture on the electric vehicle (EV) charging technology he and his colleagues have been examining.

As the EV market is increasing, the demand for charging stations is climbing as well. Fast charging stations are especially emphasized, since they alleviate long charging times – one of the main downsides of current EV’s. During the lecture, J. Szymański talked about their idea on simplifying the build and simultaneously reducing production and mounting costs. By using pulse width modulation (PWM) converters and applying them properly in microgrids, it is possible to reach the desired results without sacrificing electric power quality.

The community of the faculty are grateful to the professor for sharing his knowledge and experience.
