This whitepaper educates readers on how trends are driving innovation and advancement of DCFC (direct-current fast charging) solutions and how more modern DC/AC inverter and EV DCFC solutions can provide greater utility and capability than legacy solutions.

This will be done by comparing a common legacy 100-kW EV DCFC solution from BTC Power with a 100-kW EV DCFC solution from Imagen Energy that is advancing the state-of-the-art. This paper includes a primer on SiC versus Si power transistors, FPGA control versus microprocessor control, a teardown and analysis of the BTC Power L3R-100, and comparison of this unit’s capabilities and performance with Imagen Energy’s new IM100 and EV-100 module EV DCFC solution.
