This paper reviews typical circuit topologies and control algorithms for on-board unidirectional single-phase electric vehicle battery chargers (EVBCs) and provide simple yet reasonably accurate component-based models for their representation and analysis. The accuracy of the developed models will be validated against measurements of actual EVBCs, for both ideal voltage supply conditions and typically distorted voltage supply waveforms. The paper will also provide some discussion and recommendations for further use of developed models in power system studies and analysis of future networks with high penetration levels of EVBCs.
