The DC amp reading we get from Canion is about 1.0 amps low.
The on board charger takes alternating current (AC) from the EVSE and converts it to direct current (DC) going to the traction battery.
Heres's the AC from the EVSE.
(244.85 volts)x(13.31 amps)=3,259 volt-amps or about 3,250 watts taking in the power factor.
Here's the DC going to the traction battery.
(352 volts)x(8.12 amps)=2,858 watts.
Here's the DC when the cooling pump is running.
About 0.2 amps less.
The charger efficiency is (DC power to traction battery)/(AC power from EVSE)x100 = (2,858 watts)/(3,250 watts)x100 = 88%
