Research project “#FastCharge”: ultra-fast charging technology ready for the electrically powered vehicles of the future.

Tierr@_de_N@die: Fast charging comes to solve one of the great issues of electric mobility, charging times. This prototype shows how this time can be significantly reduced with a high performance hose cooling system. 

In order to meet the demands of fast charging at high capacity, cooled HPC (High Power Charging) cables made by Phoenix Contact are used, which are fully CCS-compatible. The cooling fluid is an environment-friendly mixture of water and glycol, allowing the cooling circuit to be half-open. This makes maintenance comparatively straightforward as compared to hermetically sealed systems that use oil, e.g. in terms of refilling the cooling fluid.
