The ever-increasing number of EV’s requires a sophisticated approach to manage the load on the grid — i.e. load balancing means you can install multiple charging stations for electric vehicles with an unchanged connection capacity. In this process, the charging power is distributed equally across all electric vehicles to be charged. Load balancing means you can avoid cost-intensive, one-off increases in connection capacity and prevent peak loads that result in higher demand charges. Another concept is the so-called “static load management” which evenly distributes a charging power pre-set for all charging stations across several connected electric cars, no matter how many of the individual electric cars are actually charging. Every charging station is allocated the same charging power. Or, in contrast, dynamic load management, which adjusts the total available charging capacity to the current power consumption in the entire building. So, if the power consumption in the building decreases, then there is more electricity available to charge the electric cars. This session will share insights on how the electricity load can be managed in light of EV charging.
