PowerFlow™ Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) System
Onboard 18 kW Level 2 Battery Charging System with Bi-Directional Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) Power Transfer Capability
PowerFlow™ Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) charging systems provide up to 18 kW of standard Level 2 onboard battery charging capability for electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles when connected to any standard Level 2 charging stations with SAE J1772 connection interface, as well as enable electrical power to be transferred bi-directionally between the vehicle battery and the public electrical grid when connected to special V2G enabled smart charging stations.
The V2G System utilizes the same Drive Control Unit (DCU) that drives the electric traction motor in electric or hybrid electric vehicle applications as the power inverter for bi-directional battery charging functionality.
The V2G Interface Module automatically handles switching between powering the motor when driving and transferring power between the vehicle battery and electrical grid when plugged into a charging station.
