Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) operation can allow the EV to operate as a mobile power source, eliminating the need for separate backup/portable generators and standalone power inverters. This paper presents the V2X operation of an integrated single phase charger based on the dual-inverter drive. As this integrated charger re-uses the existing high-power traction inverter and motor, this saves additional costs over previously presented V2X capable discrete on-board chargers, while having a higher power output. This digest provides an insight into the principle of operation and control, along with experimental results using a full-scale 110 kW dual-inverter drive consisting of a liquid cooled EV motor.
