Re: Battery Pack Charger Connection

Thanks GrumpyB, Understood. I'll make sure I have the correct components in place. Hoping that 16A won't be too much of a problem, as I'm using 32A home wallpod and public chargers.... but I give some more thought to whether 16A input could be useful in an emergency.
Many thanks .... Steve

Re: Battery Pack Charger Connection

Hi GrumpyB, thanks for your reply. Well... I have done searches, in fact I have been researching this subject for a while now, both J1772 and 62196, which seem quite similar save for J1772 only having 2 phases. Yes, OK the evse supplies the power and it tells the ev what is available, in order that ...

Re: Battery Pack Charger Connection

Hi GrumpyB, thanks for your reply. OK, perhaps I'm a bit confused...The chargers I'm looking at have "canbus" is this only for alarms/indicators, I wonder ? I'll check with the supplier. I think I'm up-to-date with the PWM and resistors, although the method of using the duty cycle to contr...

Re: Battery Pack Charger Connection

Hi Mark, sorry for this late reply. I'm looking for this answer too. Most of the chargers that I can find seem to have canbus control, although some do have canbus and enable. I've been looking for some sort of interface between the inlet socket on the car and the charger. This could either by-pass ...

Re: Battery Pack Charger Connection

Hi Grumpy-b, I have been doing a bit more research into this subject and, it seems that the 3 charger idea will work. I've just come across this website (link below) which shows (better than I have been doing) what I meant about a 4 wire 3 phase (star) system This is an extract: "If a balanced ...

Re: Battery Pack Charger Connection

Hi Grumpy-b, Thank you for your almost comprehensive reply. I have been a Mechanical Engineer, man and boy for over 55 years and, yes, I do understand 3ph distribution, balanced and rotating fields and so on... and yes, I do know the difference between an OBC and EVSE. However, I was not sure of the...

Re: Battery Pack Charger Connection

Hi Grumpy-b, I'm sorry if I wasn't clear, it was lazy using abbreviations. EVSE - the charge point attached to my house or the ones at service stations etc. (electric vehicle supply equipment). OBC - the battery pack charger fitted on-board my vehicle, connected to the battery pack at one end and to...
