How does Smart Charging work?

In News 0 comments

The technology of the electric vehicles has evolved dramatically. However, it's not only vehicle innovation that is driving the electric vehicle industry forward. Innovation in charging technology is evolving too. This is where smart chargers come in. The technology behind these chargers is changing the way we charge our EVs, making the process more efficient and convenient. In this article, we'll explain what smart EV charging is and how it work. 

What is smart charging?

The smart EV charging system uses intelligence to optimize the charging process. It allows you to manage, monitor, and limit charging stations. The smart system applies an intelligent decision-making process that can, at any appropriate time, increase power, reduce power, or delay the charging process. Compared to traditional chargers, a smart charger can help you improve the range and performance of an electric vehicle by ensuring that the battery is properly charged and ready to go when you need it. You can even control the charging process remotely by using the smart chargers. 

How does smart charging work?

Smart charging connects charge points with users and operators. It can bring real-time data from connected charging devices and charging events to the charging station owner's fingertips:

Control the charger remotely: This ability allows you to communicate with your home charging station with smartphones. You can stop and start charging sessions with your smartphone, get insights directly on energy usage, and adjust your behavior in real time.

Optimize charging process: Smart chargers can provide real-time information on the charging process so that you can adjust the charging speed, select the right type of charging station for your vehicle and requirements, and avoid overloads. It can also help you charge your vehicle at times that are convenient for you. 

Save money: When a driver plugs their car into a smart charger, it won’t necessarily start charging immediately. You can save money by optimizing the timing of your charging event to favor charging when electricity is at its cheapest.
