EV Plug Type check

Hi,

I would like to check my plugtype and facilitytype specifications for the EV Long Distance Api.

My car, a Kia E Niro has a CCS fast charging system with a max DC of 80kW.
To feed this to the api I defined the:

  • plugtype as Combo_to_IEC_62196_Type_2_Base
    and the
  • facilitype as Charge_50_to_500V_Direct_Current_at_125A_50kW or Charge_200_to_450V_Direct_Current_at_200A_90kW or Charge_200_to_480V_Direct_Current_at_255A_120kW

Is that the right way to describe my cars facilities?

Thanks John

Hi,

These parameters seems to be correct.
Remember that you also need to provide charging curves.

Hi John!

It looks like your EV could also use an extra facility Type, and looking at the link that you sent : https://pod-point.com/guides/vehicles/kia/2019/e-niro-6-kwh about your vehicle, I have prepared a more elaborated set of charging Modes.

var kiaModes = {
    "chargingModes":[
        {
          "chargingConnections":[
              {
                "facilityType":"Charge_50_to_500V_Direct_Current_at_125A_50kW",
                "plugType":"Combo_to_IEC_62196_Type_2_Base"
              },
              {
                "facilityType":"Charge_200_to_450V_Direct_Current_at_200A_90kW",
                "plugType":"Combo_to_IEC_62196_Type_2_Base"
              }
          ],
          "chargingCurve":[
              {
                "chargeInkWh":40,
                "timeToChargeInSeconds":3600
              },
              {
                "chargeInkWh":51,
                "timeToChargeInSeconds":4020
              }
          ]
        },
        {
          "chargingConnections":[
              {
                "facilityType":"Charge_50_to_500V_Direct_Current_at_62A_25kW",
                "plugType":"Combo_to_IEC_62196_Type_2_Base"
              }
          ],
          "chargingCurve":[
              {
                "chargeInkWh":51,
                "timeToChargeInSeconds":36000
              }
          ]
        },
        {
          "chargingConnections":[
              {
                "facilityType":"Charge_200_to_480V_Direct_Current_at_255A_120kW",
                "plugType":"Combo_to_IEC_62196_Type_2_Base"
              }
          ],
          "chargingCurve":[
              {
                "chargeInkWh":40,
                "timeToChargeInSeconds":2400
              },
              {
                "chargeInkWh":51,
                "timeToChargeInSeconds":4020
              }
          ]
        }
    ]
  }

The charging times are updated depending on the facility type.

I have emailed you in private the route again.

Best regards
