The overall objective of FastInCharge is to foster the democratisation of electric vehicles in the urban environment by developing an easier and more comfortable charging solution which will enable to ease the EV use by the large public and facilitate their implementation in the urban grid. FastInCharge’s intention is to develop a cost-effective modular infrastructure offering a global solution for EV charging. Its success will boost research in the direction of dynamic charging solutions.
The concept of FastInCharge is to create a highly performing inductive solution which will enable a 40 kW power transfer to the vehicles in two charging operational situations: one stationary and one on-route. The inductive technology developed will be integrated into one electric car (secondary charging block) and two charging stations, one stationary and one on-route (primary charging block). The full functional chain will be carefully scrutinized in order to ensure an optimal, safe, and sustainable solution: battery charging, EV performance and safety, EV range, communication EV/station, connection station to the grid, grid management, and energy supply, intelligent coordinated systems.
