Power management involves all the power consumed in an electric vehicle (EV), so it impacts the vehicle's performance, safety, and driving range. To provide these vehicle characteristics, power management:
- Ensures that the proper power, voltage, and current are applied to each electronic circuit.
- Ensures that there is isolation between low-voltage and highvoltage (HV) circuits.
- Offers power circuit protection against electrical disturbances that can affect internal or external circuits.
Managing Electric Vehicle Power provides complete coverage for understanding how best to utilize the primary power source across all the EV's Electric Control Units. Readers will also be introduced to the qualification standards of the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC). AEC standards are a 'one-time' qualification that typically takes place at the end of the development cycle.
