Would it be necessary to charge rapidly the electric vehicle (EV) and hybrid electric vehicle (HEV)? It is not easy to answer without a thorough look at the capability of the modern propulsion battery and the power necessities of the EV and HEV. The different possible solutions are compared and maximum speed of charging is analysed. The wired connection for charging is compared to the wireless energy transfer and because of the limitations imposed by the modern and future batteries, the contactless energy transfer is chosen as the future charging method.
