Solar Charging System for Prius PHV
ソーラー充電システム ~プリウスは ついに太陽光を 走るエネルギーに~

2017 Journal of the Japan Society of Applied Electromagnetics and Mechanics  
Tatsuya MIYOSHI Solar panels for vehicles can't generate as much power for driving because of size limitation. Therefore, Toyota has developed a solar charging system for Prius PHV that can use solar energy for driving. This system can efficiently charge the traction battery with the low power generated by the solar panel. The power generated can charge the traction battery while the vehicle is parked.
