Charging methods for new energy vehicles (NEVs), including electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), can be classified into several categories based on the charging power, infrastructure, and charging time. Here are the common classifications and their characteristics:

Level 1 Charging (Low-Voltage AC Charging):

Power Source: Standard household electrical outlets (110-120V AC).

Charging Power: Typically 1.4-2.3 kW.

Characteristics: Level 1 charging is the slowest charging method and is mainly used for low-power charging needs. It is convenient for overnight charging at home but might take a significant amount of time to fully charge the vehicle.

Level 2 Charging (Medium-Voltage AC Charging):

Power Source: Dedicated charging equipment, such as home charging stations or public charging stations.

Charging Power: Typically 3.6-22 kW (can vary).

Characteristics: Level 2 charging provides faster charging compared to Level 1. It requires dedicated charging equipment and is commonly used for home charging and public charging infrastructure. Level 2 charging can significantly reduce charging time and is suitable for daily charging needs.

Level 3 Charging (High-Voltage DC Fast Charging):

Power Source: Specialized DC fast charging stations.

Charging Power: Typically 50-350 kW (can vary).

Characteristics: Level 3 charging, also known as DC fast charging or rapid charging, offers the fastest charging times. It requires specialized charging infrastructure and is primarily used for quick charging on the go. Level 3 charging can provide a significant amount of range in a short amount of time, making it suitable for longer trips and reducing charging downtime.

Wireless Charging (Inductive Charging):

Power Source: Charging pad or plate embedded in the ground.

Charging Power: Typically up to 11 kW (can vary).

Characteristics: Wireless charging eliminates the need for physical cable connections. The vehicle is parked over a charging pad, and power is transferred through electromagnetic induction. It offers convenience and ease of use, as the vehicle can be charged by simply parking it over the charging pad. However, wireless charging efficiency may be slightly lower compared to traditional wired charging methods.

It's important to note that the charging methods and characteristics mentioned above are general classifications, and specific charging options and power levels may vary depending on the vehicle model, regional infrastructure, and technological advancements.
