This paper presents a three-phase off-board charger for plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) with model predictive direct power control (MPDPC) for PEV battery charging. In the paper, the system description of the PEV charger is explained and its control is thoroughly discussed. Then, the steady-state characteristics of the charger is verified using MATLAB Simulink to confirm the feasibility of the PEV charger using MPDPC. Results show good power delivery for battery charging with respect to preset active and reactive power references while providing constant battery charging voltage and current.
