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 parkings), semi-public places (for instance paid parkings) or even private ones.
These systems meet the basic needs of the majority of users since the autonomy of the batteries recharged during the average time a car stays parked exceeds the distance traveled daily.
Considering a vehicle with a 50 kWh battery pack, it will be fully charged through an AC system (22 kW) in about 2.5 hours. In the case of vehicles with 100 kWh batteries, it will be fully charged 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 charges 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.
