Improving the EV to grid dialogue.
The key elements of the platform, known as SE-CPM, are Renesas' V850 microcontrollers, Ariane Controls PLM-1 core and Grid2Horne SE 2.0 software. The companies say the system is designed to help reduce grid disruption from (presumably wide-scale) EV battery charging. The platform can act as a translator from a home area network to the meter, with the goal of managing the load and potentially using the car battery as a backup energy source during an outage or high electrical demand. The firms are offering the solution as a development platform for automakers and charging station manufacturers for testing and evaluation.
The platform will help to establish a new SAE (sae.org) communications standard between EVs and Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSEs), according to Rich Scholer, the chairman of the SAE Communication Task Force.
