Electric vehicles (EV) are emerging as a viable and environment-friendly solution for the daily commute. However, for a broader utilization of the EV, their autonomy range has to be increased. A well dispersed charging network and a fast and efficient battery charger system becomes one important factor for the success of the EV. This paper addresses the challenges of developing such High Power chargers and proposes a modular, easily scalable and efficient implementation of a switch-mode DC-DC
