As the widespread adaption of electric vehicles continues to expand, increased charging speeds become critical. There are three levels of charging types, with the Level 3 charging as fast as 30 – 60 minutes. But drivers don’t want to wait. A fourth charging type is under exploration and could charge EVs to a 200-mile range in as a little as 7.5 minutes.
Higher power charging stations make faster charging possible, but it also generates significant heat. Level 3 power converters use liquid cooling as an effective way to manage the heat, enabling efficient performance of onboard batteries, charging stations and other key EV components such as charging cables. Each component needs to tolerate heat as power increases.
Liquid cooling is critical. It ensures an effective operation and avoids damaging equipment. There are several considerations for optimizing liquid cooling fluid connectors including connector type, materials, flow rate and pressure. Read this tech guide to ensure the compatibility of your liquid cooling system and EV components.
