Title: GROUND STATION FOR INDUCTIVE CHARGING OF A MOTOR VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a ground station (10) for charging a motor vehicle, wherein the ground station is configured for arrangement on a base on which the vehicle can travel. The ground station comprises a fan unit (14) arranged within the ground station, which fan unit is configured to cool at least one electric and/or electronic assembly (15) arranged within the ground station by means of an air stream which can be supplied from an outer region (21) of the ground station. The supply channel (12) of the air stream is designed such that when the ground station is arranged as intended, water (19) penetrating through a supply opening (11) of the supply channel on the path to the fan unit and/or the assembly must overcome at least one step (17) in a component of a flow direction of the water, wherein the component points in the opposite direction to the force of gravity.
