Whitepaper: Transitioning charging stations to smart grid nodes - a comparison of current communication standards
ESK researchers have published a white paper that summarizes and analyzes the key communication standards for electric vehicle charging systems. The study revealed that the most relevant standards for Europe are ISO/IEC 15118 for vehicle-to-charging station communication and IEC TR 61850-90-8 for the interface between the charging station and the smart grid. The white paper is available for download at http://s.fhg.de/ChargingTechnology.
