Intelligent charging of electric vehicles – ISO 15118 and Powerline Green PHY™
The international ISO 15118 standard defines the intelligent charging of electric vehicles – smart charging – for AC and DC charging stations. Among other advantages this enables active charging control, plug & charge authentication, smart grid integration and other services.
In smart charging, the charging station (EVSE) communicates with the electric vehicle (PEV) via a charging cable using the HomePlug Green PHY™ powerline standard in accordance with ISO15118-3.
The INSYS Powerline GP establishes a point-to-point connection between the charging station and the electric vehicle via a Green PHYTM powerline connection. This enables the EVSE controller (SECC) to communicate with the vehicle (PEV) via an Ethernet link in accordance with ISO 15118.
The compact design and standardised interfaces provide support during use in your charging station solution.
The device is immediately ready for use without initial configuration.
The integrated EVSE-side SLAC (in accordance with ISO 15118-3) controls the association process between the vehicle and the charging station. This reduces the time-critical real-time demands on the SECC and enables, among other things, the simultaneous control of several charging processes.
You can use the INSYS Powerline GP in both AC and DC charging stations – thanks to the coupling of the powerline signal on the pilot conductor of the charging cable.
Implementation of the ISO/OSI communication layers 1 (physical layer) and 2 (data link layer) in accordance with ISO 15118-3.
Integrated support for SLAC (Signal Level Attenuation Characterization).
