The Combined Charging System is recognised throughout the automotive and other industries for its ease of use, simplicity and flexibility. As with many successful products, its simplicity belies the fact that the technology “under the hood” is more complex than appearances would suggest.
The CCS development team created this universal solution by combining multiple existing standards and technologies, resulting in an innovative new product. It has created this Design Guide to assist other companies with an interest in electric mobility – including carmakers, municipal power utilities, manufacturers of charging equipment and so on – to understand the standards involved and the relationships between them, as well as the charging architecture, safety concept, and communication between the electric vehicle and the charging station.
With the Design Guide, companies can review detailed illustrations of the charging sequence with step-by-step descriptions. It also shows how pulse width modulation is used for low-level communication between the vehicle and the charging equipment, along with a layer-by-layer description of high-level communication based on PLC. The Design Guide also features an extensive chapter on safety. This includes information on all the relevant standards used, the product’s safety concept, possible errors and how they are resolved.
The Design Guide concludes with an overview of all the standards included in the entire CCS architecture and a partial list of some of the major suppliers of equipment related to the CCS solution.
