SmartGrid & Loadbalancing

How can you make optimal use of the electricity grid without the need for major investments or adaptations to the grid?

CENSmart Grid 1.0 (load balancing)

Enables capacity to be divided between two vehicles on a double charging station. As standard, the load balancing is active between two outlets. Account is taken here of the nominal power of the charging terminal. Moreover, load balancing can be deployed on a large scale by means of a coupling with a UTP cable in series between the charging terminals.

CENSmart Grid 2.0 (local smart charging)

To take this a step further, it is also possible to use an additional electricity meter installed after the main incoming power supply to take account dynamically, in real time, of the total consumption of the building or department. Here too, coupling is very easy thanks to a UTP cable going from the electricity meter after the main circuit breaker to the charging terminal controller.

CENSmart Grid 3.0 (coupling with sustainable energy)

To add the finishing touch, a coupling can be established with any solar panel transformers available. This takes account of the renewable energy created, which can be used by the charging infrastructure in real time. This coupling can also be easily established thanks to the power and intuitive aspect of the controller, without the need for additional third-party components.

The next step will be coupling to batteries. CenEnergy aims to develop grid that is as renewable and as autonomous as possible.

Why CENSmart Grid?

  • The local electricity grid is protected against overloading.
  • The available power is optimally distributed for all the electric cars that have to be charged.
  • The grid is used as efficiently as possible without the need for major investments or adaptations to your grid.
  • Consumption can be controlled on the basis of the available power and the market price of the energy supplier.
  • The load management for the Smart Grid application is also integrated into the software – Master/Slave connection with up to 24 controllers.
  • Possibility of connecting an LCD screen to display data on the charging terminal (solar/battery and net consumption and production on site).
  • The IE8511 Communication Protocol between the car and the charging terminal to read relevant information is also available. This facilitates management of the vehicle fleet.
