FKFS has developed a flexibly-configurable onformity test system for ISO15118 to ensure and check the communication between electric vehicles (EV) and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE).
Standardized charging communication is important to ensure compatibility between electrified vehicles and charging stations. The international standard for high-level communication during charging is published in ISO15118.Its second edition will additionally include use cases such as wireless communication and energy recovery.
To be prepared for these new application cases, FKFS, which is also involved in the standardization committee, is continuously developing its flexibly-configurable conformance tester for testing the communication between charging stations and electric vehicles. The test system realized by FKFS for ISO 15118 conformity tests can be used to emulate and test both charging stations and electric vehicles. Further development could function as Man in the Middle to listen in on, check or manipulate the communication between the charging partners.
