An advanced battery charger with a wide DC input voltage range for electric-bike applications

Thanks to the rapid development of solar power technology and the effort to use the renewable energy, charging e-bikes from a solar charging station installed in public areas will be a prospective scenario. Depending on the weather conditions and charging station specifications, a solar charging station usually provides a DC voltage within a range going from 12V to 72V.
Therefore, it is desirable to design a DC battery charger for e-bikes that is able to work with such a wide range of DC input supply voltage. In this project, an advanced battery charger, which is able to work under such a wide DC input voltage range, will be developed to charge 24V-battery-based electric-bikes (e-bikes) produced by our industrial partner, Alizeti Ubimobil Inc.. In addition, an optimal charging technique will be presented to optimize the charging current during charge, aiming to prolong the battery lifetime.TO BE CONT’D
