What are the supporting facilities for new energy vehicles? How to charge an electric car?

New energy vehicles refer to vehicles with new technologies and new structures that use unconventional vehicle fuels as power sources. The popularity of new energy vehicles in the automotive industry is increasing day by day, and electric vehicles among new energy vehicles are especially favored by consumers. So, what supporting facilities do new energy vehicles have? How to supply the electricity required by electric vehicles?

The first type: charging pile

Charging piles are the most common electric vehicle supporting facilities. They are similar to the fuel dispensers in gas stations. They can be fixed on the ground or walls and installed in public buildings, such as public buildings and shopping malls, as well as public parking lots. Some are installed in the parking lot of the community or inside the charging station . Charge different models of electric vehicles according to different voltage levels. The input end of the charging pile is connected to the AC power grid, and the output end is equipped with a charging plug, which is used to charge the electric vehicle.

Charging piles generally provide two charging methods, namely conventional charging and fast charging. Car users can use a specific charging card to swipe the card on the human-computer interaction interface provided by the charging pile, select the corresponding car charging method, charging time, and even print the cost data. The charging pile display can show the charging. The amount of electricity and the required cost, as well as relevant data such as charging time.

The second: car wireless charging

At present, there are two mainstream car wireless charging methods, namely electromagnetic induction and magnetic resonance.

First of all, the electromagnetic induction type, the primary electric coil has a certain frequency of alternating current, and a certain current is generated in the secondary electric coil through electromagnetic induction, and then the energy is transferred from the transmitting end to the receiving end.

Second, the magnetic field resonance type. This is composed of an energy transmitting device and an energy receiving device. When the two devices are adjusted to the same frequency, or resonate at a specific frequency, they can exchange energy with each other.

There is no doubt that the biggest advantage of wireless charging is that it eliminates the need for wires. During the charging process of electric vehicles, users are exempted from the three actions of getting off the car - pulling out the charging gun - inserting the charging gun.

The third type: exchange power station

This is an energy station that provides charging for the power battery of an electric vehicle and rapid replacement of the power battery. In order for an electric vehicle to continue driving, its electrical energy must be replenished. Also in the case of quick replacement of the car battery , the battery pack is also used to charge the car battery in a certain mode when the battery pack is removed from the car. Covering methods include AC, DC, as well as voltage limiting and current limiting. Which charging method is used actually depends on how much current, voltage and charging time are required.

There are two charging methods: vehicle charging and charging after the battery is separated from the car body. The charging methods include fast charging and conventional charging, as well as three types of slow charging. In the same way that the car battery is quickly replaced, the car battery pack is also charged in a certain way after the car battery pack is removed from the car. Different batteries have different charging methods.
