FAST CHARGING

Impact of Fast Charging on Battery Ageing in Long Term Real Situation

During the European Electric Vehicle Congress (EEVC) , Laurent De Vroey, Laborelec expert on e-mobility and member of the Scientific Reviewing Committee of the EEVC, presented the results of the study “Impact of Fast Charging on Battery Ageing in Long Term Real Situation”. In this paper, the influence of fast charging on the car battery ageing is considered for a Peugeot iOn car, that was used during a 3-years period in real conditions. The results are compared with those of 4 other Peugeot iOn cars that were used during the same period, but with a standard charging behavior.

After three years, no evidence of any impact of the charging mode on the battery capacity degradation was observed. In particular, no negative impact of the fast charging was found.
