This session provides guidance on automated testing and conformance assessments for EV chargers, in order to facilitate faster pathways to market entry. Before bringing EV chargers and energy management systems to market, a crucial step in the development process is ensuring they:
- Complete the required performance assessments
- Are in compliance with the IEEE 1547-2018 data communication and interoperability requirements specified in UL 1741 SB
Performance testing is a step that affects many links within the supply chain, including manufacturers, asset owners, and fleet operators. A panel of experts will discuss the increased complexities surrounding data communication and cybersecurity standards when adapting power conversion devices like EV chargers to national grid codes. Additional topics include improving interoperability and ways to improve quality while maintaining – or even improving – gross margins.
