Electric vehicle conductive charging system - Part 1: General requirements
|Publication Date:||1 January 2001|
|ICS Code (Electric road vehicles):||43.120|
This part of IEC 61851 applies to equipment for charging electric road vehicles at standard a.c. supply voltages (as per IEC 60038) up to 690 V and at d.c. voltages up to 1 000 V, and for providing electrical power for any additional services on the vehicle if required when connected to the supply network.
The aspects covered include characteristics and operating conditions of the supply device and the connection to the vehicle; operators and third party electrical safety; and the characteristics to be complied with by the vehicle with respect to the a.c./d.c. EVSE, only when the EV is earthed.
NOTE 1 Class II vehicles are not excluded, but the lack of information on this type of vehicle means that the requirements for the standard are unavailable at present.
NOTE 2 This standard applies to EVSE with on-site storage capability.
NOTE 3 Requirements for specific inlet, connector, plug and socket-outlets for EVs are also under consideration. They shall be incorporated in a separate standard (in the IEC 60309 series) when complete.
This standard does not cover all safety aspects related to maintenance.
This standard is not applicable to trolley buses, rail vehicles, industrial trucks and vehicles designed primarily for use off-road.
