Abstract: This paper presents a new battery charger for low power electric vehicles with high power factor and Efficiency. The main objective of the proposed design is to reduce the conduction losses and Reverse Recovery Problem in power diodes. To eliminate both the issues, the diode rectifier is present in primary and secondary side of the transformer an series resonance circuit added. By using the series resonance circuit, Zero Current Switching (ZCS) possible and also alleviates the reverse recovery problem. Thus the proposed new battery charger operates with high power factor and high efficiency. Additionally, by using the present single power conversion, it is easy to install the on-board charger in the EVs. After the theoretical analysis, Simulation Results are obtained on MATLAB/Simulink environment and Hardware results are from the proposed model.
