Hitachi to launch high-capacity multi-port EV charger
Two models from Hitachi Industrial Products are available with 250 kW and 500 kW, which enables to support the global requirement for high-power charging (ultra-fast charging, large-fleet EV charging).
Hitachi Industrial Products has today announced that it will launch a large-capacity multi-port EV charger that enables fast charging of electric vehicles (EVs) from October 2023.
The large capacity multi-port EV charger developed by Hitachi Industrial Products enables to shorten the charging time and eliminate the charging congestion by increasing the number of vehicles to be charged simultaneously. Bidirectional charge/discharge control technology enables to eliminate grid congestion without the need for grid reinforcement, and to stabilise voltage control required due to large introduction of renewable energy. In addition, high-efficiency power conversion technology maximises the value of EVs' potentiality as distributed energy resources.
Hitachi Industrial Products is participating in the demonstration project initiated by CHAdeMO Association to verify the Japan-China next generation charging standard CHAdeMO 3.0 (ChaoJi2) and to promote the standard globally. This first demonstration site in Japan for the verification of next-generation EV charging standard is established at Omika Works, and will be opened to domestic and overseas EV OEMs, from October 2023 for two years.
MAIN FEATURES OF THE MULTI-PORT EV CHARGER
Multi-port (scalability): Within the capacity of 500 kW, it is flexibly possible to arrange the output power from each dispenser such as 90 kW×5 port and 25 kW×20 port configuration with simultaneous charging.
Large capacity: Two models are available with 250 kW and 500 kW, which enables to support the global requirement for high-power charging (ultra-fast charging, large-fleet EV charging).
V2X Energy Management: It supports V2X and capable for power demand control for the facility utilizing EVs as electric power resource.
