Construction Of The First High Power Charging Demonstration Station For Electric Passenger Vehicles In China
- Jan 15, 2019 -

On January 11, the inauguration ceremony of the first high-power charging demonstration station for electric passenger cars in China, the charging station of Beijing Future Science City, was held.

Beijing Future Science and Technology City Charging Station is constructed by Electric Vehicle Service Co., Ltd. The station is equipped with a new type of high-power charging pile. The maximum output power of a single gun is 360 kW and the maximum output current is 500 A.

At present, the range of electric vehicle is about 500 kilometers. If charged according to the maximum output power of the charging pile, it can provide enough power for an electric vehicle to travel about 200 kilometers in 5 minutes. The charging time is equivalent to the refueling time of the fuel vehicle. In one day, the traditional 40 kilowatt charging pile can provide charging service for 10 vehicles, while the 360 kilowatt DC high-power fast charging pile of the station can serve 80 vehicles.

According to reports, the newly developed high-power liquid-cooled charging gun is lighter, more flexible, safer and more reliable than the original charging gun, which improves the charging capacity and user's charging experience. At present, the high-power charging pile has completed the joint test with the high-power charging vehicle of Beiqi New Energy Company. Next, the latest high-power charging models supported by major domestic and foreign automobile companies will be charged and tested at the station.

In order to promote the rapid development of the electric vehicle industry, the State Grid Electric Vehicle Company has accelerated the research of high-power charging technology and organized the pilot work of high-power charging demonstration for electric vehicles. The company's major equipment manufacturers and automobile companies both inside and outside the United Nations have carried out high-power charging demonstration projects in Beijing, Shandong, Jiangsu, Hunan, Fujian and other places, organized joint testing of "vehicle-pile-network", and provided important support for the formulation of national standards for high-power charging.
