KIA Niro: Low Voltage DC/DC Converter

Specification

Description

Description

The Low Voltage DC/DC is integrated into the HPCU. It charges the auxiliary battery as a substitute
for generator by converting the high voltage (DC 270V) from the high voltage battery into low voltage (DC 12V).

Component  Location

  1. Low Voltage DC/DC Converter (LDC) (HPCU)
  2. Low Voltage DC/DC Converter (LDC) power output terminal (+) (DC 12V)
  3. Low Voltage DC/DC Converter (LDC) ground terminal (-)

Removal

Removal

Warning

  • Be sure to read and follow the "General Safety Information and Caution" before doing any work related with the high voltage system. Failure to follow the safety instructions may result in serious electrical injuries.
  • Be sure to read and follow the "High Voltage Shut-off Procedures" before doing any work related with the high voltage system.

    Failure to follow the safety instructions may result in serious electrical injuries.

  1. Shut off the high voltage.

    (Refer to "High voltage Shut-off Procedures")

  2. Remove the air cleaner assembly and air duct.

    (Refer to Engine Mechanical System - "Air Cleaner")

  3. Remove the ECM & TCM bracket assembly.

    (Refer to Engine Control/Fuel System - "Engine Control Module")

  4. Drain the coolant of hybrid motor cooling system.

    (Refer to Hybrid Motor Cooling System - "Coolant")

  5. Disconnect the motor power cable connector (A) and HSG power cable connector (B) after loosening the mounting bolts.

  1. Disconnect the power cable (A) and inverter power cable (B) from the HPCU.

Warning

Warning

HCU Variant Coding

  1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
  2. Connect the KDS to Data Link Connector (DLC).

    Turn the ignition switch ON.

  3. Select "Vehicle, Model year, Engine, System".
  4. Select "Vehicle S/W Management".
  5. Select "HCU Variant Coding".

Engine clutch/motor resolver adaptation

Engine clutch/motor resolver adaptation

  1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
  2. Connect the KDS to Data Link Connector (DLC).

    Turn the ignition switch ON.

  3. Select "Vehicle, Model year, Engine, System".
  4. Select "Vehicle S/W Management".
  5. Select "Engine clutch/motor resolver adaptation.".
