Intelligent Power Charging in Smart Cities
Every successful project is based on a solid foundation. This is also true for e-mobility. Smart and future-oriented solutions are required to create the best possible conditions in power grids.
Not only power supply grid operators and municipal utilities but also the owners of site networks need to be able to face up to the challenges of e-mobility. We at VIVAVIS are able to offer a comprehensive and interoperable portfolio of solutions for e-mobility. This portfolio is part of the VIVAVIS capacity optimization strategy for power grid operation, enabling, amongst others, the control and management of charging columns and many more functions.
Slowly but surely, e-mobility is becoming an integral part of Smart Cities. The necessary charging infrastructure has a significant impact on the power distribution grids, which, in turn, poses major challenges to power grid operation and control.
Even though the necessary power for charging e-vehicles is, as a rule, easily available in the distribution network, there will always be special situations where the owners of distribution grids must be flexible, forward-looking and capable of taking the appropriate actions. Such situations can be tackled e.g. by a charging column control system.
Our Solution for You
- Direct Control of Charging Columns
The ACOS 730 RTU and the HIGH-LEIT feed-in management enables owners of power grids to make their networks fit for the integration of charging infrastructures. The SCADA system recognizes imminent bottlenecks in the grid and can make targeted interventions into the charging column control system to prevent such bottlenecks.
- Targeted Control of Charging Processes
In the field of e-mobility, VIVAVIS enables the interoperable and consistent control of charging columns via Smart Meter Gateway as communication platform. The technical basis for this solution is the expanded ACOS 730 FNN Control Box. It enables the detection of critical situation in the power grid via the control centre and the shut-down of charging processes if necessary.
- Intelligent Power Grid and Charging Infrastructure Management
HIGH-LEIT iNLM is a management system for public transport companies which operate fleets of e-buses and equip depots with charging infrastructures to charge their vehicles. HIGH-LEIT iNLM enables a comprehensive approach for the optimization of power grid and charging infrastructures and for supporting operations.
- Charging Column Control for Individual Programming through Manufacturers of Charging Columns
Manufacturers of charging columns also benefit from VIVAVIS: Our VIVAVIS Ant hardware is a powerful Linux-based hardware which enables the implementation of the customer’s own control software which can be labelled as required.
- Maintenance and Outage Management of Charging Columns
Our 360° AM Asset Management System is a powerful tool for the digital management and documentation of processes and job orders related to charging columns and system components. It makes the implementation of projects and tasks even more efficient, enabling operators to obtain a transparent overview of activities, their status and their documentation at all times.
- Integrated Billing of Charging Columns
According to 48§ of the Metering Point Operation Act, the owners of power grids are obliged to equip their charging columns with intelligent metering systems (iMsys)) by the end of 2020. The intelligent metering system includes a communication unit that enables the transmission of grid data to grid owners, and of consumption data to the respective metering point operator, grid owner or power supply company.
