Home Solutions for EV Charging
Our Home Solutions are designed for homeowners who want a fast and reliable solution for charging their electric vehicles. Our solution includes Dynamic Load Management and Dynamic Load Management with photovoltaic, providing a fast and reliable charging experience.
With our advanced technology, the Smart Current Meter monitors the electricity consumption in the home and calculates the available electrical power, which is then used to charge the electric vehicle. As power consumption in the home increases or decreases, the charging power of the electric vehicle adjusts accordingly, providing a fast and reliable charging experience.
When choosing a charging station, the house’s electrical network and its final power have to be considered. Most single-family houses have a connection power of 3x20A or 3x25A.
Due to the growing trend in the use of heat pumps and other electric sources, the electricity usage in newer constructions is higher than in older houses which use wood or heating oil as a primary source of heat.
In order for your electric car to be recharged as fast as possible, it makes sense to have an advanced solution from GL Charge – DLM. DLM – Dynamic load management, which ensures that the charging of vehicles is adjusted to the electricity usage in the house at a given time. As the power consumption increases, the charging power decreases and as the power consumption decreases, the charging power of the electric vehicle increases. This allows for the fastest possible charging depending on the strength of your main fuses in the house.
See the example of a single-family house below.
Dynamic Load Management
Dynamic Load Management (DLM) is a key component of GL Charge’s Home Solutions. DLM is a smart technology that dynamically adjusts the charging power of electric vehicles to match the available electricity in the home. This helps to ensure that the charging process is fast, safe, and reliable, without putting any undue strain on the home’s electrical system.
DLM works by continuously monitoring the electricity usage in the home and adjusting the charging power of the electric vehicle accordingly. If additional appliances or electronics are turned on, causing an increase in electricity usage, the DLM system will automatically reduce the charging power of the electric vehicle to avoid overloading the electrical system. Similarly, if the electricity usage decreases, the DLM system will increase the charging power of the electric vehicle to allow for faster charging.
This dynamic adjustment of charging power helps to ensure that the electric vehicle is charged as quickly and efficiently as possible, without risking any damage to the home’s electrical system. Additionally, the DLM system is easy to use and requires no special training or knowledge to operate, making it the ideal solution for homeowners looking to charge their electric vehicles at home.
Domestic electricity network
The house gets electricity from the public network. This electricity is then used to power all consumer appliances in the house as shown. Eg. for use of charging station, induction cooker, washing machine etc…
The “Smart Current Meter” takes care of the operation of the DLM – Dynamic load management. This reads the share of consumers in the house and calculates the free electrical power, according to the input fuses in the house electrical cabinet.
See how it takes care of customization below.
Dynamic power adjustment to the network
A smart current meter monitors the electricity consumption in the house and calculates the free electrical power, which is then used to charge the electric vehicle.
As shown on the left, when you turn on additional consumers in the house, as these have the advantage, the power of the charging station is reduced. However, if certain consumers are not included, e.g. induction cooker, vacuum cleaner, washing machine, the power at the charging station increases.
This allows quick and advanced charging of your electric vehicle even during the day when you have more electricity consumers in the house.
Dynamic Load Management with photovoltaic
Dynamic Load Management with photovoltaic is an advanced solution for homeowners who have both an electric vehicle and a photovoltaic (PV) system installed in their home. This solution combines the benefits of DLM (Dynamic Load Management) with the benefits of a PV system to provide a fast, safe, and reliable charging experience for electric vehicles.
DLM with photovoltaic works by monitoring the electricity usage in the home and adjusting the charging power of the electric vehicle accordingly. The system also takes into account the output of the PV system, using excess solar energy to power the electric vehicle when it is available. This helps to reduce the overall energy consumption of the home and reduces the reliance on traditional grid-tied electricity.
In addition to reducing energy consumption and costs, DLM with photovoltaic also helps to ensure that the electric vehicle is charged as quickly and efficiently as possible, without risking any damage to the home’s electrical system. The system is easy to use and requires no special training or knowledge to operate, making it the ideal solution for homeowners looking to charge their electric vehicles using sustainable and renewable energy sources.
