Reliable high-power charging is vital to providing support for wider adoption of battery electric vehicles (EVs), both in the passenger and commercial segments.
Standardized communication protocols like IEC 61851 and ISO 15118 are the critical components in this effort. They provide a way to interact between an external DC charger and EV in order to optimize charging speed, safety, and convenience, in addition to other services for ensuring interoperability between vehicles and chargers coming from diverse vendors. In order to meet the market needs, these protocols are evolving at a rapid rate which poses a challenge for both car and charger vendors, resulting in the need for more advanced tools and methods for compliance and interoperability testing.
