Electric vehicle charging seminar series in three parts

21-01-2021 | Arrow | Automotive & Transport

Arrow Electronics will be hosting a series of webinars on EV charging. The three-part series, to be held weekly throughout February 2021, has been created to be of interest to existing developers of EV-charging systems and to a more extensive audience, including local grid operators, energy providers and public transport authorities.

The topics include current sensing and metering in EV charging on 4 February; cloud-based charging management and enabling vehicle to grid on 11 February; and power electronics in EV charging on 18 February. Each event will highlight four 15-minute presentations supported by a panel discussion. The speakers will be from Arrow, its suppliers and qualified external sources.

Each session will discuss common conversation points and challenges faced by the EV industry. The first webinar will examine AC charging (mode 1, 2, 3) and the application of residual current sensors for leakage detection; high-power DC charger current sensing and metering; and the importance of metering standards (EN 50470, IEC 62053 and IEC 65052) and how to comply.

The second webinar will examine how to enable, use and leverage cloud connectivity in domestic, public and superchargers; security and data protection; ISO 15118 and OCPP; and the V2G outlook. In the final session, on power electronics, the subjects covered will incorporate modules versus discrete design; thermal management; power architecture comparison; high-power connector integration; and standardised connection systems.
