Metrology for electric vehicle charging systems

Project: EU project

Project Details


Traceable evaluation of electric vehicle charging stations under realistic operating conditions

The Electrical Vehicle (EV) is the core of Europe´s transition plan for the transport sector towards electromobility. The successful integration of EVs requires the deployment of an extensive EV Charging Station (EVCS) infrastructure. Thus, traceable assessment of the impact of EVCSs under realistic operating
conditions on power quality and grid distortions is needed.

Project develops metrology capabilities for the traceable evaluation of EVCS under realistic operating conditions.

VTT MIKES characterises DC and dynamic performance of voltage and current transducers as well as develops a voltage attenuator for DC metering up to 1 kV to be used in DC charging reference systems.

Call 2023: Metrology for Industry

The project (23IND06 Met4EVCS) has received funding from the European Partnership on Metrology, co-financed from the European Union’s Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme and by the Participating States.
