Excess PV Charging – What does that mean?
Installing photovoltaic (PV) solar panels on your roof allows you to generate not only power for your home or the grid. Solar electric energy can also go directly to your electric vehicle. We explain what excess PV charging is exactly and how it works.
From the outside, a conventional combustion engine differs only marginally from its electric relative - internally, however, it differs a great deal. A different engine brings with it many new terms that require explanation. From 'A' as in 'AC' to 'F' as in 'FI circuit breaker' and many other terms, we have listed the most important technical vocabulary that an e-car driver should know.
Load management - importance and benefits
There are still more ICE vehicles than electric cars. But what if the situation changes over the next few years? Are the power inputs, particularly of large residential buildings, de-signed to have the majority of tenants “fill their tanks” at home? The answer is yes – if the load management is sophisticated enough.
How long does it take to charge an EV?
People often cite charging time as a major shortcoming of electric vehicles. However, the duration is dependent on many factors and can range from a few minutes to several hours. Find out below what causes such big divergences and why the actual charging time is irrelevant in most cases.
Cable or no cable? That is the question.
Aside from the inner qualities of a wallbox – which include performance and safety features as well as attributes such as user identification, consumption gauge, and communication with existing systems – a purely external distinction can be made between two types: wallboxes with a fixed cable and wallboxes with a charging socket. These are the advantages of both models.
AC and DC? Single-Phase and 3-Phase Charging?
If you want to drive an e-car or a plug-in hybrid, you have to deal with the subject of charging. You’ll quickly come across terms like alternating and direct current, single-phase and 3-phase charging. But what do they mean and how do these concepts influence the way you charge your vehicle? Here’s a summary of the most important points.
