In the development of electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), the battery charger plays an important part. The number of all-electric (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) in India is expected to expand substantially in the next years. On-board batteries in EVs/HEVs require complete or partial recharging via a low voltage utility network that supplies home or light industrial customers. A battery charger is required for the utility connection, which is made up of a unidirectional or bidirectional power electronic converter that converts AC to DC or vice versa. Because of the smaller size of the high-frequency isolation transformer, a two-stage AC/DC and DC/DC power conversion is widely used in battery charging systems. This thesis is organized into seven chapters and focuses on the design and development of AC-DC and DC-DC converters for a 5 kW, 84V battery charger.
