Title: A VEHICLE CHARGING STATION
Abstract:
A charging station (5) for an electric vehicle (1), wherein the vehicle (1) has a body (2) and a first coupler (4) mounted to the body and wherein the station (5) includes a second coupler (81) for releasably complementarily coupling with coupler (4) for allowing a transfer of energy from the coupler (81) to the coupler (4) at a coupler voltage and a coupler current. A DC energy storage device (80) for providing a device current at a device voltage. An interface (83) connects with an external source of electrical energy (77) and a control module provides control signals. A switching module (120) is responsive to the control signals for selectively: connecting the second coupler (81) and the interface (83) such that one or more of the coupler voltage and the coupler current is regulated by the interface (83); and connecting the storage device (80) and the interface (83) such that one or more of the device current and the device voltage is regulated by the interface.
