34.Can I charge my car through a regular plug socket?

It is possible to charge an EV by using a regular 3-pin plug, and most new vehicles will come with a cable for you to do this. It’s best to keep this option as a back-up though, rather than as your main method of charging.
This is because charging your car like this is slow at 2.3kW and puts strain on a regular electric circuit, as it runs close to its 3kW maximum for a long time. For example, it’ll take more than 17 hours to fully charge a 40kWh battery like the one in the popular Nissan Leaf. A 64kWh Kia E-Niro, meanwhile, will take almost 28 hours to charge from empty to full.

37.What’s the best home charger to get?
Home charge points are available in 3kW and 7kW forms, but 7kW chargers are most common. They come in a lot of different styles, whether you’re after a futuristic design to be a feature of your driveway, or a small, subtle covering to hide your charge point inside something like a wood-effect box.

There are plenty of different brands you can choose between, while you should look out for the type of connector your car has and the features on offer with different chargers, such as compatibility with apps and other energy-saving devices in your home. You can also choose between different cable lengths to suit your needs.


38.What is a smart charger?
Example: The UK government is looking to introduce regulations which ensure all EV charge points sold or installed in the country have smart charging functionality, while only smart chargers qualify for the government contribution towards installation of a home charge point.

They allow you to charge up at times of the day when the demand for energy is low, meaning there’s less strain on the electricity grid. You can program your charger to come on overnight to take advantage of the lower energy prices you get on your tariff, while their safe, fast and easy nature makes them win-win all round.


39.What is Vehicle-to-Grid charging?
Vehicle-to-Grid, or V2G charging is where electric cars effectively act as power banks, returning energy to the electricity grid during peak times. Whereas smart charging helps the grid by managing the demand placed on it, V2G technology goes a step further by taking energy from car batteries to power both your home and the country’s electricity network.


40. What is OCPP?

The Open Charge Point Protocol(OCPP) is a protocol for communication between an EV charging Station and a central Back Office system. The Open Charge Pint Protocol(OCPP) is a freely available open standard that enables component vendors and network operators to :mix and match” interoperable hardware and software. Today charing network operators and service providers in more than 50 countries rely on OCPP to manage more than 10,000 charging stations.

 

41.Dose Newyea support OCPP?

Yes. Newyea charging products support OCPP1.6. Currently, Newyea’s OCPP has been tested and certified with official tools, and has successfully docked with Thailand and Italy servers. It can be compatible with servers from different manufactures.

Currently, our charging products support authorization, remote start/stop transaction, setting availability, remote reset, abnormal status and corresponding error information report, changing configuration, firmware upgrade, heartbeat, changing data repot, offline upload, All kinds of functions required for OCPP can be fulfilled.

The concept is almost like having a huge decentralised power station across the UK. This will rely on renewable energy where cars are charged by a supplier offering it, while your car will still be fully charged when you need it to be. V2G technology is improving all the time and will become more accessible over the coming years.


42. What is a 7kw EV home charger?

EV home chargers have a typical charging power of either 3.6kW, 7kW (22kW charge points require three phase power, which is rare in UK homes).

3.6kW and 7kW chargers rely on single phase power supply which 95% of UK homes already have. Therefore for most people, choosing a 7kW charger is the best option because it’s the fastest power rating their home can support.

43.What is the average charge time?

A typical electric car (60kWh battery) takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty to full using a 7kW home charging point.

To work out the charge time of your car you can do the following:

Divide the power of your car battery (also in kW) by the figure obtained to get the charging time.
For example: 60kW/ 7.3 kW= 8.2 hours

This will be a rough indicator as exact charge times vary on the temperature of your environment and the amount of charge already in the battery. Note that charging rate slows down considerably when you are charging the last 5% of your battery.

44.Why is a home electric charger a good idea?

Having a dedicated EV home charger is the most convenient and cost-effective way of charging your EV. This is because most drivers charge at home at night and sometimes top up during the day.
