Murata Webinar; EV Charging Infrastructure Power and High Voltage Challenges

EV Charging Infrastructure Power and High Voltage Challenges


Date: Thursday, March 17, 2022

Time: 11:00 AM Central European Time

Duration: 45 minutes

The race is on developing an infrastructure that can bring charging times down to the level of traditional petrol pumps.

Together with Avnet Abacus, Murata hosts a webinar looking at power, and high-voltage challenges engineers face these days. Both specialists in this field, Richard Craven (Avnet) and Ann-Marie Bayliss (Murata), deep-dive into this hot topic and unravel these challenges and share their expert tips and tricks.


It’s believed that widespread availability of fast charging could be the tipping point for the adoption of electric vehicles. So the race is on to develop infrastructure that can bring charging times down to a level similar to traditional petrol pumps.

However, designing DC fast charging systems presents a host of challenges to engineers, especially around DC-DC conversion, where high efficiency and reliability are critical.

Learn from the best! Join us for a deep dive into all things DC-DC. Hosted by Avnet Abacus’ Senior Product Manager for power and batteries, Richard Craven, and presented by Murata’s resident EV charging expert, Ann-Marie Bayliss, this session will cover:

  • AC vs. DC charging applications
  • An overview of DC charging systems
  • Power challenges for DC fast charging designs
    • Environmental testing
    • Voltage requirements
    • Partial discharge
    • dV/dt immunity
    • Capacitance
    • Physical considerations
  • Q&A
