Plug-in HEV or pure EV use an on board battery charger to feed the high voltage battery, thus a new converter is now necessary inside the car. This converter might have different specification in terms of power level, input voltage and output voltage, but it generally includes a PFC section + a DC/DC section. The below diagram describe the two stages and components that might be used
