Get to know us!
The section Charging within department Propulsion Energy System is responsible for delivering some of the most vital parts to hybrids and pure electric vehicles. We are responsible for the On-board Charger (OBC) and the DCDCs. The DCDCs converts energy from the traction battery to the low voltage system. The on-board charger holds the functionality to charge the traction battery from the grid, and it is for sure of highest importance in a pure electric vehicle. Both AC- and DC-charging(fast charging) are in current projects and the future of charging functionality also holds features like wireless charging, automatic payment and smart charging.
The Agile Scrum Team, In-house Software development , is responsible for deliveries of software functionality for the on-board charger. The biggest challenge with the DC-charging functionality of electrified vehicle is that half of the system is outside the vehicle. The success of the charging-sequence is highly dependent on the implementation in the charging station done by the charging station manufacture, and that they interprets the standard in the same way as we do. We therefore need to do the uttermost we can in our software to be flexible, adapt and to ensure compliance to the software of the charging stations.
Our vision is to deliver the best functionality in the market for Charging Software functionality and continuously evolve our way of working. We strive for a more modular software platform to cope with all different configurations of the worldwide charging standards. Now we are looking for a Function Developer who wants to join our team.
