SAE Electric Vehicle Inductively Coupling Charging
- Ground Vehicle Standard
This SAE Recommended Practice establishes the minimum interface compatibility requirements for electric vehicle (EV) inductively coupled charging for North America.
This part of the specification is applicable to manually connected inductive charging for Levels 1 and 2 power transfer. Requirements for Level 3 compatibility are contained in Appendix B. Recommended software interface messaging requirements are contained in Appendix A.
This type of inductively coupled charging is generally intended for transferring power at frequencies significantly higher than power line frequencies. This part of the specification is not applicable to inductive coupling schemes that employ automatic connection methods or that are intended for transferring power at power line frequencies.
Data Sets - Support Documents
The Electric Vehicle Forum Committee is intended to coordinate the development of standards for electric vehicles and supporting electric propulsion technologies such as batteries. In support of this goal, the Committee identifies areas where standards are needed, works with existing committees to develop such standards or modify existing standards where practical, and establishes subcommittees and/or task forces to prepare information reports, recommended practices or standards which are specific to electric vehicle. This Committee has included coordination of the development of standards for Hybrid-Electric Vehicles and Fuel Cells. International Cooperation: The committee or its subsidiary groups have formal liaison established with IEC TC69 (Electric Road Vehicles), for which SAE holds the International Administrative Secretariat, with Craig Toepfer of Ford as secretary and SAE Staff as Assistant Secretary, ISO TC22/SC21 with Gregory Nieminski of UL as U. S. TAG Chairman and SAE staff as U.S. TAG Administrator (Electric Road Vehicles), the Japanese Electric Vehicle Association (JEVA), and Battery Council International.
