electric vehicles (EVs): How to manage the modeling of the charging terminals?
In the context of global warming, the electric vehicle (EV) appears to be one of the major solutions to reduce the negative impact of gas emissions. All new buildings must now be equipped with EVs charging systems ranging from a few kVA to several dozen kVA. This conditions the charging time according to the expected use.
Controlling the safety of EVs facilities
The EV chargers require a significant amount of energy during potentially long periods of use that are repeated daily. This can lead to risks of heating the installation if the equipment is not adapted. In the case of an existing electrical installation, controlling safety is therefore crucial. For each charging point, a dedicated circuit must be created and protected by a circuit breaker and a differential current protection device.
The applicable standards are constantly evolving to adapt to the growth of this new need. The reference standards are provided by IEC 60364-7-722.
