AC charging stations (up to 22 kW) are commonly called "charging points" and must guarantee vehicles a recharge in places where the vehicle normally stops such as public places (roads and parking), semi-public (for ex. paid parking) or even private ones.
These systems meet the basic needs for the majority of the users since the autonomy of the batteries recharged in average parking exceeds the daily distance. Considering a vehicle with a 50 kWh battery pack, it will be able to perform a full charge with a AC system (22 kW) in about 2.5 hours. In the case of vehicles with100 kWh batteries, it will be able to perform a full charge in about 5 hours.
The actual power of the recharge depends on the power of the on board battery charger, which performs the AC / DC conversion and charge the lithium ion battery normally used on contemporary cars.
The AC-EVC product line allows to charge electric vehicles in recharging mode 3 – case B .
