The one-word title of this paper describes an extremely important function that is required to make relatively recent computer-based components play nice together, or interoperate, and it doesn’t happen by magic.
This post is about one important example of interoperability testing among the many devices and systems that are responsible for battery electric vehicle (BEV) charging. These systems are also collectively known as electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). Although interoperability testing has been ongoing by manufacturers and industry organization since the first (modern) charger was plugged into the first (modern) BEV, this will be an important milestone in the testing because:
- The California Energy Commission (CEC) is sponsoring (and paying for) these tests.
- The CEC proposes to segment these tests into different types of BEVs (light, heavy, buses, etc.)
- The CEC proposes to look at advanced vehicle to grid interoperability functions.
I seem to be settling in to around monthly “EV…” posts. One excuse for this post was a good article from Forbes on new EVs from next year and later.
Subsea7 and Siemens Energy have joined forces to develop a Subsea High Voltage Plug and Power Hub for the floating offshore wind market.
