The DC House USB-C Charger will convert the 48V input from the DC house, found on the Cal Poly campus, to 3 USB-C outputs: 5V, 12V, and 24 volts. The converter will deliver a total of 185 Watts out across all 3 outputs, with an efficiency greater than 82% at full load. The USB-C ports will be used to connect to compatible phones, laptops or any other device for charging/powering purposes. The goal of this project is to develop the most efficient and safe converter to deliver power to multiple outputs using USB-C, for items as small as a cell phone to the size of a mini fridge. Currently, the DC house does not contain this USB-C feature. USB-C is the connector type that technological companies are using more and more within their new products. With this said, it is necessary to design and implement this charging capability to the DC house. Once implemented, this project will assist in having the house up to date with the most current technological advancements.
