Fast charging DC stations can charge electric vehicles (EV) in just 30 minutes by bypassing the onboard charger (OBC) for rapid, direct battery charging.

By replacing traditional Si components with Wolfspeed Silicon Carbide upgrades, DC fast charger designs can realize significant gains in system efficiency, power density, and reliability. These fast charger designs are typically constructed with stacked groups of power conversion blocks that are each 20 kW to 60 kW.
