Description

Plug-in hybrid vehicle can be normal charge.

In the case of normal charge, the battery is charged after 220V AC power is transformed to DC power
by On-Board Charger (OBC).

While charging the vehicle, the driving of the vehicle is restricted.

Description

In normal charge, the battery is charged through the On-Board Charger (OBC) using external power
supply of 220V.

On-Board Charger (OBC) is the equipment that charges the high voltage battery of electric vehicle
using the 110 - 220V AC power.
