More reliable interoperability between vehicles and charging equipment is the goal of a new SAE International project. (ECOtality)

A safe, reliable, and easy-to-use charging infrastructure is key to further market acceptance of plug-in vehicles. With that in mind, SAE International is seeking participation from OEMs and electric-vehicle-supply-equipment (EVSE) manufacturers in a project to develop consensus-based industry standards and test procedures addressing EVSE-vehicle interoperability. Currently, OEMs and EVSE manufacturers test their products using their own internal procedures. The likelihood of interoperability problems would diminish if there were a uniform standard and test procedure. To address this, SAE is leading the new interoperability project. Uniform testing procedures will be spelled out in SAE J1953/2 - Test Procedures for the Plug-In Electric Vehicle (PEV) Interoperability with Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE). SAE’s work is being done under a contract from ECOtality, which is under a U.S. Department of Energy contract to carry out a larger project addressing advanced-vehicle technologies. Parties interested in participating in the interoperability project should contact SAE’s Keith Wilson at kwilson@sae.org.
