What does DC-DC converter do?

What is DC-DC converter?
DC-DC converters is a category of power converters that convert DC power from one voltage level to another by temporarily storing input energy and then releasing that energy to outputs at different voltages.

Is there a DC transformer?
Transformers do not pass direct current (DC), and can be used to take the DC voltage (the constant voltage) out of a signal while keeping the part that changes (the AC voltage).In the electrical grid transformers are key to changing the voltages to reduce how much energy is lost in electrical transmission.

What are DC-DC converters used for?
DC-DC converters are widely used to efficiently produce a regulated voltage from a source that may or may not be well controlled to a load that may or may not be constant.

What is the purpose of a DC to DC charger?
DC-DC converters are effectively a smart-charger for your 12V system. It isolates the house battery system from the alternator, so that the vehicle's computer management system sees it as something like a set of lights.

How do you convert a DC to DC converter?
Once the initial specs of a DC-DC design are selected (e.g., input voltage range, output voltage, output current), the first step is to select a converter IC. The desired DC-DC topology will narrow this choice. If the input voltage is greater than the output voltage, choose a buck (i.e., step-down) topology.

Is a DC transformer possible?
A transformer is a device which step-up or step-down the level of AC current or voltage without changing the primary (i.e. input source) frequency. Transformer only works on AC and can't be operated on DC i.e. it has been designed to be operated only and only on alternating current and voltage.

Are DC to DC chargers necessary?
We recommend DC to DC chargers over isolators because they protect the vehicle's alternator, and maximize the battery's lifespan. DC to DC chargers provide a multi-stage charge to the house battery and push more charge current than an isolator.

What is the best way to step down DC voltage?
Connect one end of the voltage dropping resistor to the negative battery terminal using a jumper. Connect the other end of the voltage dropping resistor to one of the terminals on the sealed beam lamp with a jumper. Complete the circuit by connecting the other terminal on the lamp to the positive battery terminal.

Where can I buy an electric car charging station?
Luoyang Grasen Power Technology Co., Ltd is a professional AC home charger and DC-DC converters manufacturer for 11 years in China, the charging connectors can be any two of CCS1/CCS2/CHAdeMO/GBT.Please send email to for inquiry.
