Regenerative High-Power, Electric-Vehicle Simulator and Tester
An outdoor rated device designed to simulate an Electric Vehicle (EV) to test dc fast chargers or ultra-fast chargers. Solution is capable of EV communications using CCS1 or CCS2 EV chargers. The solution can emulate an end-to-end EV charging process up to the rated dc capacity of the EV charger without the use of a battery-based storage system.
- DC fast and ultra-fast charger testing including:
- Safety and functional testing (following IEC 61851).
- Interoperability and conformance testing (CharIN-CCS, ISO 15118).
- Analysis of vehicle-to-grid integration (VGI) and any impact on host systems (SAE J2894).
- Cybersecurity testing of EV chargers, using a third-party controller interface.
Why use a simulator?
Limits of Existing Alternatives:
- Limited charging power due to available cars in market.
- Fixed battery characteristics per EV.
- Tests repeatability issues due to inability to set initial
- Safety concerns with EVSE failure during tests.
How Can Our Solution Help?
- High-power testing up to 500 kW, 1,000 V, 500 A dc.
- Adjustable user-specific battery characteristics.
- Adjustable test conditions offering easy repeatability.
- Designed for testing chargers with safety features.
Features and Benefits
- High-power testing.
- Built-in library of EVs with selectable initial condition.
- Regenerative / minimizing losses during simulations.
- Programmable and repeatable test procedures.
- Provides interface for third-party controllers.
- Compliant with ISO 15118 dc EV communication, with IEC 61851-23 for CCS2 coupler interface, and SAE J1772 for CCS1 coupler interface.
This mode may be used for simulating the charging process of a typical EV using different battery curves available in solution’s library. This mode is mainly used for functional and interoperability testing of EV chargers.
This mode allows the operator to upload user-defined charging profiles to investigate the impact on fast chargers, as well as the impact of different charging patterns on the host distribution system.
Manual / third-party mode:
In this mode, the user can utilize the third-party interface provided by the solution for testing external EV control units (CU) or cybersecurity testing of DC fast and ultra-fast chargers.
