Such high charging capacities call for a new on-board supply system. In order to ensure power losses are kept to a minimum during charging with direct current, the charging voltage should match the battery voltage and thus also the voltage of the entire propulsion system. In this sense, the 800-volt on-board supply system will increasingly become the future standard for high-performance electric vehicles. At the same time, all components of the propulsion system will have to run on voltage that is twice as high as current solutions. The new voltage level is especially relevant for power electronics, and in particular for the semiconductors installed in these systems. These semiconductors control the electrical current between the battery and the motor. Consequently, the new ones must be designed to manage a voltage that is twice as high.
