Types of Electric Vehicle Charger Installations
Many Electric Vehicle drivers make do with plugging in their vehicles into a standard power outlet for an overnight charge. However if you frequently find yourself needing to recharge your EV by midday on a given day, having a Level 2 charger installed by True Local Electricians Sutherland Shire is a smart investment.
EVSE chargers supply electrical energy to recharge electric vehicles. There are three levels of electric vehicle charging devices available:
Level 1 Vehicle Charger - Type 1 AC J1772 & SAE J1772
This charger comes standard with most electric vehicles sold in Australia and is plugged into any standard three-prong Power Point outlet. Although Level 1 chargers can be the most practical, their power delivery is somewhat limited and can charge EV batteries very slowly. Level 1 EVSE chargers are best used for overnight charging an Electric Vehicle, charging PHEVS (Petrol-hybrid electric vehicles) and those on a budget. Although a great entry level product, Level 1 chargers are not guaranteed or designed to meet the future needs of electric vehicles.
Level 2 Vehicle Charger - Type 1 IEC 62196 & Mennekes
This style of charger is a more advanced EVSE charger that requires its own dedicated 240-volt circuit, and need to be professionally Installed by True Local Electricians. Level 2 chargers work much faster and are able to fully charge an EV in about 3hrs. Increasingly, EV manufacturers like Tesla, Hyundai & Nissan are now including a Level 2 charger standard with each new car purchase. Level 2 chargers are the most recommended type of charger for homes to get the most from their new Electric Car purchase. Level 2 Electric Vehicle chargers offer a wide range of charging speeds up to 22 kw’s which would give your EV 140kms of range per hour of charging. Level 2 chargers provide significantly faster charge times and better safety due to the use of dedicated wiring circuit installed by True Local Electricians. Level 2 chargers may require an upgrade to 3 phase power (H3)
Level 3 Vehicle Charger - Rapid DC Fast Charging
Level 3 chargers are the standalone device commonly available at public charging stations. These chargers are the fastest of all chargers and can add 160 kms of driving range to an EV’s batteries in about 30mins. These do not have much of a residential application at this stage as they can be quite expensive and require an industrial-level power draw. If you own or work at an industrial building, it is possible to have a Level 3 charger installed there. Level 3 chargers are commonly found in commercial applications such as petrol stations, carparks, motorways, and street side areas.
Guide to Electric Car Charger Installation
True Local Electricians will provide an on-site FREE quote to determine your homes delivery capabilities in relation to what your new Electric Car requires.
Level 2 Electric Car chargers must be connected via their own dedicated cable directly from your homes fuse box / switchboard 3 phase power source. No additional appliances should be connected to the cable allowing the maximum rate of power delivery to flow to the vehicle.
Use The Right Cable For EV Charging Load
If the cables you use for your charger are too thin, they become hot and present signs of melting and burning. If the charging current is of 16 A or above we recommend a cable with a minimum size of 2.5 mm or more, allowing the vehicle to be charged with a charging output of 11-22 kW. In application where a three-phase charger installed, we recommend a 5-conductor supply cable to be used. The inner diameter of the cable depends on factors such as cable length, potential drop, environmental temperature and type of installation. True Local Electricians will assess your home and determine the appropriate diameter cable you require. We recommend preparing cables where possible for a three-phase connection, in order to be future-proof you as the future of EV’s will have quicker charging speeds and larger battery capacities.
RCD / Residual Current Device Safety in EV’s.
We use residual current device’s (RCD) to protect you from and electric shocks. An RCD balances the electric current in the live and neutral wires to/from the vehicle charger in the electric car. If a residual current flows through the bodywork of the car or the driver to the floor, the RCD is trips and breaks the circuit to protect the individual. Which Types of
What Residual Current Devices Are There?
At the minimum, a residual current device of Type A is required for each charger. The Type A RCD is a standard RCD safety switch which is installed, however some electric cars may generate smooth DC fault currents during charging. If this is the case then the appropriate DC residual current protection device must be installed. True Local Electricians recommend the installation of a RCD Type B: A Type B RCD which is sensitive to all types of AC and DC residual currents and well suited for all Electric Vehicle charger installations.
Installing a circuit breaker for your EV charger
The circuit breaker protects the cable and ensures that the circuit is broken if too much electricity flows through the cable. This ensures that no damages occur to cables as a result of overloading. In conjunction with an RCD, a circuit breaker with tripping characteristic C is required for a charging station circuit.
