Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment - EVSE

Battery and Charging standards primarily cover battery packs that power electric vehicles, conductive charging stations, and the relationship between these two sides of the equation. Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE), AC/DC charging stations, and the connectors and inlets are standardized. Within the vehicle itself, lithium-ion traction battery packs, as well as both lithium and non-lithium secondary batteries, are also standardized. These standards are related to the testing and requirements of EVSEs including system architecture.

C22.2 NO. 280-16 - Electric vehicle supply equipment (Tri-national standard, with UL 2594 and NMX-J-677-ANCE-2016)

Preface This is the harmonized ANCE, CSA Group, and UL Standard for Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment. It is the Second edition of NMX-J-677-ANCE, the Second edition of CSA C22.2 No. 280, and the Second edition of UL 2594. This edition of NMX-J-677-ANCE supersedes the previous edition published on February 22, 2013. This edition of CSA-C22.2 No. 280 supersedes the previous edition published on February 22, 2013. This edition of UL 2594 supersedes the previous edition published on February 22, 2013. Scope 1.1 This Standard covers conductive electric vehicle (EV) supply equipment with a primary source voltage of 600 V ac or less, with a frequency of 50 or 60 Hz, and intended to provide ac power to an electric vehicle with an on-board charging unit. This Standard covers electric vehicle supply equipment intended for use where ventilation is not required. 1.2 With reference to 1.1, the following list of examples of electric vehicle supply equipment are included in this Standard: a) EV Cord Sets - Rated 125 Vac maximum, 16 A maximum, intended for indoor and outdoor use; b) Fastened in place EV Charging Stations - Rated 250 Vac maximum, 40 A maximum, intended for indoor or outdoor use; c) Fixed in place EV Charging Stations - Rated 600 Vac maximum, intended for indoor or indoor/outdoor use; and d) Fixed in place EV Power Outlet - Rated 600 Vac maximum, intended for indoor or indoor/outdoor use. For Mexico, use 127 Vac where 120 or 125 Vac is referenced in this Standard. In Canada and the United States, this does not apply. 1.3 The products covered by this Standard are intended for use in accordance with the Installation Codes in Annex A, Ref. No.1. 1.4 This Standard does not cover cord sets or power supply cords for applications other than EV charging cord sets. For cord sets and power supply cords not covered by this Standard, refer to Annex A, Ref. No. 2 and No. 3. 1.5 With reference to 1.2, this Standard does not cover electric vehicle charging equipment. For EV charging equipment not covered by this Standard, refer to Annex A, Ref. No. 4. 1.6 This Standard does not cover electric vehicle connectors. For electric vehicle connectors not covered by this Standard, refer to Annex A, Ref. No. 5. 1.7 This Standard does not cover regular-use power outlets. For regular-use power outlets not covered by this Standard, refer to Annex A, Ref. No. 6. 1.8 This Standard does not cover equipment intended for wireless power transfer, which may also be designated as wireless charging, inductive charging, magnetic resonance charging, or any other similar designation indicating the transfer of power from the EVSE to the vehicle through other than a conductive connection.

SAE J 2293-1-2014 (SAE J2293-1-2014)

Energy Transfer System for Electric Vehicles - Part 1: Functional Requirements and System Architectures (Stabilized: Feb 2014)

SAE J2293 establishes requirements for Electric Vehicles (EV) and the off-board Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) used to transfer electrical energy to an EV from an Electric Utility Power System (Utility) in North America. This document defines, either directly or by reference, all characteristics of the total EV Energy Transfer System (EV-ETS) necessary to insure the functional interoperability of an EV and EVSE of the same physical system architecture. The ETS, regardless of architecture, is responsible for the conversion of AC electrical energy into DC electrical energy that can be used to charge the Storage Battery of an EV, as shown in Figure 1.
