Marco JungHead of department Power Converter Technology
Mr. Dipl.-Ing. Marco Jung received his Dipl.-Ing (FH) degree in Automation Engineering from the TH Mittelhessen (Gießen-Friedberg University of Applied Sciences). Subsequently, he studied energy engineering at the University of Kassel and received his diploma degree in 2010. Since 2010 Mr Jung has been a researcher at Fraunhofer IWES Kassel and is dealing with power converters for electric vehicles, photovoltaics and wind energy. In 2012 he took over the group management of power electronics and since 2014 he has been Deputy Head of Department of Power Converters. His current research areas include bi-directional inductive energy transfer, battery power converters and power electronic components, such as SiC MOSFETs and chokes.
Interaction between battery charger and vehicle battery: A look at function and safety
• Battery ripple and voltage ripple: What to do to ensure that the battery is fully charged and the BMS is not disturbed or destroyed
• Electrically isolated and galvanically coupled chargers (wired and wireless): topology and leakage current
• Power electronics topologies to protect against short circuit of the battery in the event of a fault in the charger
The aim of this workshop is to provide an overview on charging power electronics for electric vehicles. Learn about new technologies, future developments on charging the battery with focus on cost, power density and safety issues.
