      The topology of EV charger has been illustrated in this paper, which includes the front -end PWM rectifier and resonant converter for the second stage. Since the battery voltage varies in a wide range (200-450V), in order to maintain the high efficiency in such wide range, the converter operates in three modes: below resonant frequency mode, quasi-resonant mode, above resonant frequency mode. These three modes are adjusted by the output voltage in real time. The loss analysis in these three modes has been presented, and an efficiency optimized design method and procedure are proposed to design the main parameters in the circuit. A 10kW LLC resonant converter prototype has been presented to test.
