Transport electrification is being focused again in recent years. Many car manufacturers have been releasing and promoting electric passenger cars and buses around the world. Electrical vehicles help to massively reduce the impact of industrial development on the environment. In this presentation, we will review the power electronics technology development in EV DC fast charging since 2010, particularly focus will be put on the power stage topology development so as to achieve the wider and wider voltage charging range of vehicles.  The development trend in the near future will also be explored.


Dr. River Tin-ho Li received his B.Eng., and Ph.D. degrees in electronics engineering from the City University of Hong Kong in 2004 and 2010 respectively.

In 2006, he was a Senior Electronics Engineer at Emerson Network Power China responsible for power supply burn-in energy recycle system development. In 2010, he joined ABB Switzerland as a Scientist and responsible for PV inverter and EV charger research activities. He was transferred to ABB China in 2013 and set up the power electronics research team. In 2018, he joined Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI), where he is currently a Senior Manager of Power Electronics Team. His research interests include power electronics converter topologies and efficient switching techniques for low voltage applications.
