VEDECOM is the Frontrunner in Innovative Recharging Systems at EVS32

VEDECOM Institute is feeling positive after four days of demonstrations, conferences and manning the stand at the EVS32 symposium – the international scientific fair on electric vehicles and the various recharging solutions. The event took place from 19 to 22 May 2019 in Lyon. It was an opportunity for valuable meetings and discussions with all sectors of the industry.

It was four days in which to showcase VEDECOM activities in the field of vehicle electrification

At the 32nd edition of the Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS32), VEDECOM had a stand in the cluster zone alongside its partner Mov’eo, the transport and automobile R&D competitiveness hub. The 27 m² space provided the room to exhibit a full dynamic induction recharge system comprising two coils: an innovative solution that was wholly designed in-house at VEDECOM Institute and is able to power a vehicle like the Zoé. The event was the chance to meet the Institute’s researchers who came to present the results of their research on recharging, electric engines and power electronics. Four of them also participated in the conferences and poster sessions.

Two electrical recharging solutions in partnership with Renault

VEDECOM has also partnered Groupe Renault and Trialog in two very well-attended demonstrations on innovative recharging solutions:

  • The “Plug and Charge” demonstration presented the simplification of the systems of identifying and charging vehicles across public stations. At present, connecting and charging are dependent on the reading of a badge by the bollard: it is this badge that allows the vehicle to be recognised and to deliver the authorisations necessary for the charge. Ultimately, the vehicle will be automatically recognised by the bollard, which is thus able to manage identification, authorisation, charging and paying processes with the different interlocutors, for a simplified user experience.
  • The bidirectional home charging allows electric vehicles to return the energy stored in their batteries to the electric network, and to better regulate the charge. This is thus performed at a maximum when the supply is most abundant, particularly during renewable energy production peaks. Conversely, in peak periods, the vehicle can feed energy back into the network in order to help smooth out the peaks in consumption, and may therefore serve as a temporary energy storage unit. The vehicles are equipped with embedded bi-directional chargers coupled to a software component developed by the VEDECOM Institute in partnership with Trialog, which provides communication between the vehicle and the bollard.

The communication between vehicle and terminal, required for this smart recharge, is provided by a software brick that was developed by VEDECOM in compliance with the ISO 15118 standard.
