Transportation Electrification Technology Assessment and Testing 

Quanta Technology provides practical solutions and testing services to support utilities, facility owners, installers, and EV/EVCS manufacturers in the areas of transportation electrification technology testing and integration. Testing electric vehicle chargers both prior to installation and in the field is key in providing reliable charging sessions for EV owners and supporting the move toward electrification of transportation.

Controlled testing and demonstration of transportation electrification technologies are critical in addressing concerns about EV adoption. Key stakeholder concerns are presented in the illustration above.

Common Concerns and Complaints from Different Stakeholders Involved in Transportation Electrification

EV Testing

Quanta Technology offers three categories of transportation electrification technology assessment and testing:

Evaluates meter accuracy/performance under various conditions and calibrates as needed. This ensures accurate customer billing.

Category 1: EV Chargers Sub-Metering Accuracy Testing

Verifies the charger can follow the charging sequence and procedures. The focus is more on items such as charger ramp rate, ground fault protection, etc. The functionality testing of DC fast and ultra-fast chargers requires high-power setups. 

Category 2: EV Chargers Functionality Testing

Verifies that communications between charger, EV, and network comply with the applicable standard protocols (e.g., OCPP, ISO 15118 …)

Category 3: EV Chargers Interoperability Testing

  • EV charger-to-network communications:
    • Connection to third-party aggregators, or for the purpose of data exchange and telematics, implementing demand response (DR) programs, etc.
  • Vehicle to charger

Service: Service centers of future design and engineering

Fleet electrification necessitates rethinking of the service center design and transitioning of energy sources to a fully electric center. The service centers of the future will be required to support electric transportation fleets. To improve resiliency, a service center should use battery energy storage systems (BESS) along with a local controller (e.g., a microgrid controller) to achieve efficiency, reliability, and integrity of supply and operation. Examples of key-use cases that are commonly discussed in relation to a fully electric service center include:

  • Managing utilization of multiple energy resources (PV, BESS, etc.) and controllable loads (water heating, electric vehicle chargers, etc.) to support the day-to-day operation of medium and heavy-duty fleets
  • Planned and unplanned island operation of the facility for responding to system events
  • Managing electric vehicle charging load during peak time to minimize the impact on the grid and achieve cost savings
