NUMEROUS USE CASES AVAILABLE

Charging and Load Management Software 

With the growing number of electric vehicles (EV) and charge points, the available power for charging sessions must be coordinated in an intelligent way. Once a charging station has been connected to vCharM, each charge point can be conveniently configured, monitored and controlled.

Our scalable feature-based software can be tailored depending on your application, while staying completely independent from charging station manufacturers by supporting all current versions of the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP).

 

We've got the right solution for you!

OCPP Interoperability Testing

Verify the Interoperability of Your Charging Station with Our Backend

Progress in electric mobility is our common interest. However, it is slowed down due to interoperability issues in a highly fractured immature market. Vector wants to contribute to best customer experience by confirming the interoperability of your charging station and Vector’s charging station management system.

This is why we invite you to participate in a bilateral remote test session for OCPP 1.6J and/or OCPP 2.0.1 and jointly publish the positive result!

      The frontend provides dialogs for configuring the entire charging infrastructure. Whether you edit an existing charging station or add a new one, everything is implemented in no time.
      New firmware versions can be managed centrally and distributed to charging stations on a time-controlled basis.

      Features

      Load Management

      Manage load consumption dynamically with configurable charging strategies

      Load management is required at the latest when the total power of the charging stations exceeds the available installed power. However, costs can also be saved beforehand by avoiding peak loads at individual charging stations. The operator decides on the prioritization of the charging processes by selecting the charging strategy that suits best. An interface to an energy management system (EMS) is used to optimize the load management. Therefore, no fixed limits and additional reserves are necessary for charging sessions, but the charging power depends on the actual available power. 

      Charging Station Control

      Monitor, configure and control charging stations via OCPP 1.6J, OCPP 2.0 and OCPP 2.0.1

      Charge points can be configured, monitored and controlled via the user interface. Guided dialogs support the operator in his various tasks. In case of problems with a charging session, the operator is notified and supported in failure diagnosis. Additional documentation of the charging infrastructure, e.g. schematics of the electrical setup, can be uploaded and stored in the user frontend. This is especially helpful for charge parks with charging stations from various brands. Communication with the charging station is via the manufacturer-independent OCPP protocol.

      Vehicle Preconditioning

      Monitor and control individual vehicle preconditioning via the implementation of Value Added Services

      The control of the preconditioning of electric buses was standardized by the Verband Deutscher Verkehrsunternehmen (VDV) as a Value Added Service. vCharM supports the VDV 261 specification and offers various control interfaces.

      Vehicle Authorization

      Manage and verify vehicle authorization requests

      Various methods are available for the authorization of charging sessions. vCharM supports established technologies such as RFID chips, Autocharge and Plug & Charge according to ISO 15118.

      Reports

      Generate and analyze reports with statistics of finished charging sessions

      Reports with statistics on completed charging operations can be created for various purposes. Pre-defined reports can be customized and exported if desired.

      Fleet Management

      Automate data exchange with your fleet management system

      Existing fleet and depot management systems can be integrated via an automated data interface (REST and VDV 463) and used for optimized load management or pre-conditioning control. The open and standardized interfaces ensure a high interoperability between charging station and depot management systems. Fleet and depot management systems can use vCharM data for their own purposes, e.g. the planned charging sessions for the fleet can be visualized. Further tools can also be integrated, such as a maintenance ticket system.

      Clearing

      Log transactional data of charging sessions in law-conform manner

      Meter readings are centrally recorded and processed. The data is made available for billing transactions. The meter readings can be protected against manipulation by a digital signature in order to meet the requirements of the new calibration law.

      Certificate Management

      Management and validation of contract certificates and charging station certificates

      Enable vehicle and charging station authentication and charging authorization by Plug & Charge according to ISO 15118. Securely exchange contract data for clearing and invoicing between the vehicle and the backend.

      System Architecture

      The vCharM architecture provides a REST and VDV 463 interface for the integration into other management systems. The exchanged data can be used to optimize the charging sessions and the operational business and also for cost tracking and billing.

      Hosting Variants

      vCharM can be operated on a local hardware device and in the cloud. For cloud usage, the hardware device can establish an internet connection between the charging stations and the cloud. The device can be supplied by Vector; please contact us for more information.

      Protocols

      Smart Charging with ISO 15118 and OCPP 2.0.1

      The protocols ISO 15118 and OCPP 2.0.1 provide a comprehensive interface to control the power consumption of charging procedures for electric vehicles. With vCharM, you benefit from the latest OCPP version 2.0.1, including improved transaction handling and increased security. Security is also enforced by TLS encryption of the whole communication, enabling for example secure firmware updates and authentication. In addition, support for ISO 15118 with regard to smart charging requirements, e.g. for Plug & Charge, is implemented in OCPP 2.0.1. Besides, OCPP 2.0.1 offers device management and thus an improved possibility for the customer to retrieve and define configurations and also to monitor a charging station.

      Load Management

      Static load management
      With static load management, a total power output is defined for all charging stations, which is distributed to all charge points. Unless a special prioritization is defined, every vehicle is provided with the same charging power, no matter when it arrives. So if more vehicles are added to the charging gradually, less power is available for each individual vehicle. 

       

      Dynamic load management
      With dynamic load management, the total charging capacity is adapted to the power consumption of the building. If less electricity is consumed there, more is available for charging the electric vehicles and vice versa.  

       

      Schedule-based load management
      Schedule-based load management integrates departure times, required power and other vehicle priorities into the distribution system, so that electric vehicles that have to leave the charging park earlier can be charged more quickly.  

       

      Individual charging strategies
      Would you like to design your load management individually and develop your own charging strategy? We offer pre-configured charging strategies, e.g. for charging bus depots and for employees charging at their workplace, or advise you on the development of your individual charging strategy.
