Abstract

Since electric vehicles have gained more and more popularities in the current research area, there is need to design a circuit and converter for charging these electric vehicles by means of the excess amount of electricity produced by the grid. Since they should compete in the market with their traditional counterparts, their efficiency is the winning point in their competence with respect to the traditional ones. Thus, there is a need to design using DC/DC converter to increase the efficiency. In this paper, Forward converter followed by a boost converter is designed and their elements are selected in order to meet the design criteria. Eventually, the converter is simulated in PLECS to get a validation of the calculations.
