The variety of electric vehicles is still restricted due to their charging periods. By introducing a new type of converter and optimization methods, the limitations of charging time can be overcome. In this work, an innovative H-Bridge controlled transformer-less Buck-Boost DC-DC Converter was proposed for EV charging applications. The main contribution of the proposed converter is to provide higher efficiency and increase the charging speed. The converter performance is verified using simulation and experimental results. Compared to other topologies, the proposed converter increases charging time and switching speed.
