What is the difference between fast charging and normal charging of electric vehicles and EVs?

 What is the difference between fast charging and normal charging of electric vehicles and EVs?

An electric vehicle is a vehicle that uses electric power to charge the battery in the vehicle from an external power source and drives the electric motor as a power source. Since it does not use gasoline, the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) when driving is zero. It will be an important eco-car in the coming era.

The charging facility is divided into two parts: a large normal charging facility and a fast charging facility.

About installation space

The common charging facility is compact and can be installed relatively easily in detached houses, commercial buildings, outdoor parking lots, etc., but the rapid charging facility requires equipment installation space.

About charging time

The large capacity type of the fast charging facility takes about 15 minutes ~ to 40 minutes to charge up to 80% of the batteries near the sky and 30 minutes ~ to 80 minutes for the medium capacity type.

The normal charging facility uses a single-phase AC 100V outlet or a single-phase 200V outlet and takes 8 to 14 hours. (Also available as a pole-type ordinary charger (single phase 200V) for outdoor parking. There are two types, a cabled outlet type and a cable type, and a cable-free type charger may have limited vehicle types that can be charged depending on which outlet is installed.)

About power supply equipment

The power supply is mainly used for the quick charging facility with 3-phase 200V. 15 minutes to charge from 40kw/50kw for large capacity/medium capacity type and 80% for batteries near 0 ~40 minutes. At, medium capacity type is 20Kw, also 80%It takes about 30~ 80 minutes to charge up to. In each case, the fast charge is assumed to be a frequent commercial vehicle if the battery is almost free. In Japan, the installation of road stations, gas stations, high-speed vehicle SA, car dealers, commercial facilities, etc. is currently underway. The common charging facility uses a single phase 200v or 100v power supply and is highly divided into 100v outlet, single phase 200v outlet, and pole type ordinary charger (single phase 200v).

Benefits of fast charger

EV charging stations in India are often compared to gasoline refueling and are often required to have ultra-fast charging that provides the speed of the refueling line. However, EVs have the advantage of being able to replenish energy in the parking lot at non-Kurma time without going to the gas station.

Rapid chargers are generally able to charge up to about 80% in about 30 minutes by passing current at higher voltages, making them suitable for seamless charging and emergency charging at the destination.

In addition, you can collect charging service charges from users by billing system, and you can expect an advertising effect and collector effect.
