Vehicle Characterization for Unidirectional Charging Management
EV charging control can be achieved by directly accessing the EV controller via charging station (EVSE). In this project, a Phoenix Controller is used inside a Leviton EVSE with Modbus via Ethernet interface to control several EVs. The EVs tested are Scion IQ, Chevy Volt, and BMW Mini-E. They are tested and characterized in terms of supporting unidirectional grid services.
