Momentum Dynamics deploys first 200-kW wireless charging system for electric buses
In a noteworthy announcement this week, Momentum Dynamics has disclosed that it has deployed the first 200-kW wireless charging system in the US. The interesting new wireless charging system has been specifically developed for electric buses.
Reporting the deployment of its first 200-kW wireless charging system for electric buses, Momentum Dynamics said in its announcement that the system is now operational for a BYD K9S bus at Link Transit in Wenatchee, Washington.
The 200-kW wireless charging system deployed by Momentum Dynamics has a record-high charge rate, nearly two times faster than the charge rate of Tesla’s most recent Supercharger system.
Since charge rate is considered to be one of the biggest issues with wireless charging technologies, Momentum Dynamics had evidently figured out that part beforehand for its 200-kW wireless charging system. Although no specific data with regard to the charge rate has been officially released by the company, it has claimed that its wireless charging system is “more energy efficient than plug-in chargers of the same power rating.”
About the usefulness of the 200-kW wireless charging system for electric buses, Momentum Dynamics’ CEO Andrew Daga said transit agencies which are switching to electric buses worldwide have been wanting “a solution that will guarantee their new electric buses can drive any route while maintaining an adequate energy reserve under all conditions.”
