The AC/DC charger may be external or embedded into the vehicle. The charger interfaces with the battery management system which ensures a proper charge of electricity of the cells until it fulfills the high-voltage (HV) requirements. The HV battery is essential to drive the traction motor(s) upon operation. It also provides 12V through a converter for the other electronic modules of the car. This solution may be different dependent upon charging modes (slow, mid or fast) and technology (wired or wireless).
