Across the UK, there are now more public Electric Vehicle EV charging points than petrol stations, with around 42,000 charging points in over 15,000 locations. Working with respected companies in the EV market, Bowers Electricals has successfully developed and supplied custom transformers for integration into EV charging systems.
Voltage transformers are crucial to the distribution system with millions of transformers installed throughout the country. Distribution transformers are a critical component of today’s electricity systems. The transformer substations are responsible for the connection of the EV charging points to the medium voltage grid. They comply with the regulations required by the network company and convert the medium voltage electricity into low voltage. The low voltage then gets converted by the power converter cabinet, into direct current, which is excepted by the batteries in electric vehicles. The transformers power the rest of the elements to ensure the electric vehicle’s charge.
Bowers Electricals have been supplying transformers at a variety of car charging points across the UK. This map shows where the different (typically 1000kVA or 1500kVA) transformers we have supplied to help power electric vehicles are.
