    Report Overview

    Summary
    Bidirectional charging is a crucial trend in the evolution of EVs, with three primary application types: Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G), Vehicle-to-Home (V2H), and Vehicle-to-Load (V2L). While V2G optimizes grid load balancing and power dispatch, it involves multiple endpoints. This not only necessitates bidirectional charging capability in the vehicles but also requires bidirectional V2G charging equipment, requiring collaboration with aggregator energy service providers and public power grids. Its application scope can be either broad or narrow. In contrast, V2H requires additional infrastructure, while V2L is solely vehicle-dependent, allowing the charging of small appliances via a built-in bidirectional charger (OBC), offering convenience during outdoor activities or work and is the fastest bidirectional charging application to implement.

    Power semiconductors are the core of energy conversion and circuit control in electronic devices, playing vital roles in power conversion, amplification, switching, circuit protection, and rectification in electronic circuits. They are primarily used for altering voltage and frequency, as well as converting DC to AC in electronic devices. Power semiconductors have a key and extensive role in fields such as automobiles, industry, railway transportation, and power. As the new energy sector grows, particularly in solar energy and electric vehicles, power semiconductors such as IGBT and MOS are also becoming increasingly important in the realm of sustainable energy.
