How to calculate the charging time for an electric vehicle?

by Nurzviy Energy, Inc. 24 Mar 2024
To calculate the charging time for an electric vehicle using a 240V 48A or 40A charging station, you'll need to consider the battery capacity of the vehicle and its charging efficiency. Here's how you can estimate the charging time:

Using a 240V 48A Charging Station:

Charging power = Voltage x Current = 240V x 48A = 11.52 kW (kilowatts).
Let's say your electric vehicle has a battery capacity of 60 kWh (kilowatt-hours).
Charging time = Battery capacity / Charging power.
Charging time = 60 kWh / 11.52 kW ≈ 5.21 hours.
Using a 240V 40A Charging Station:

Charging power = Voltage x Current = 240V x 40A = 9.6 kW (kilowatts).
Using the same battery capacity of 60 kWh.
Charging time = Battery capacity / Charging power.
Charging time = 60 kWh / 9.6 kW ≈ 6.25 hours.
So, with a 240V 48A charging station, it would take approximately 5.21 hours to charge your electric vehicle from empty to full. With a 240V 40A charging station, it would take around 6.25 hours for the same charge.

These are rough estimates and actual charging times may vary based on factors such as battery condition, ambient temperature, and charging efficiency of the vehicle's onboard charger. It's always advisable to consult your vehicle's manual or manufacturer for precise charging time estimates.
