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.

INSYS Powerline GP

Green Phy – INSYS Powerline GP

Data transmission in accordance with ISO 15118-3 and DIN SPEC 7012

The INSYS Powerline GP establishes a point-to-point connection between the charging station and the electric vehicle via a Green PHY™ powerline connection. This enables the EVSE controller (SECC) to communicate with the vehicle (PEV) via an Ethernet link in accordance with ISO 15118.

Plug & Play

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.

SLAC integrated

The integrated EVSE-side SLAC (in accordance with ISO 15118-3 and DIN SPEC 7012) controls the association 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.

Compatible with AC and DC charging

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.

  • Communication via the powerline standard HomePlug Green PHY™
  • SLAC in accordance with ISO 15118-3 for the vehicle <> charging station association process
  • Compatible with AC and DC charging stations

Frequently asked questions

What is GreenPHY?

GreenPHY is the communication protocol utilized in the global electric vehicle charging standard CCS. It enables fast and efficient information exchange between electric vehicles and charging stations. By employing GreenPHY, electric vehicle charging becomes more standardized and reliable.

What is the difference between HomePlug AV and HomePlug GP?

The main difference between HomePlug AV and HomePlug GP lies in their peak physical layer (PHY) data rates. While HomePlug AV supports up to 200 Mbps, HomePlug GP offers a peak PHY data rate of 10 Mbps. This distinction determines the speed and bandwidth capabilities of each technology.
