Dynamic Charging Technologies for Electric Vehicles

Petr Velek



The expansion of electromobility in freight transport is limited by performance parameters and the price of existing batteries in electric freight vehicles. Using dynamic charging systems is the way to efficiently operate electric freight vehicles. The dynamic charging technology for road vehicles is the subject of intensive research today, selected dynamic charging applications are tested in real road traffic in the world. The paper presents the functional principles of basic technologies for dynamic charging of electric vehicles, contact (conduction) charging systems, and non-contact (wireless) charging systems. While conduction charging systems are at an advanced stage of development, and generous projects of overhead catenary systems for charging of trucks are being prepared, wireless charging systems remain in the phase of designing.
