Verifying EV charging conformance with emulation

Verifying compatibility of new vehicle models with different charger types and compliance with a wide range of global standards requires the use of a charging analyzer as a reference measuring instrument, a power source, and an electronic load. With these instruments, quantitative decisions on charging status, rather than just a pass / fail determination, can be made. The instruments support three use cases: person-in- the middle test, EV test, and EV supply equipment (EVSE) test.

For person-in-the middle test, the charging analyzer sits between the charger and the EV. It plays the role of a charger standard to observe the behavior of the device under test (actual voltage, current and protocol decryption). Emulate a charging station during EV test by using the power source and charging analyzer. This method allows all combinations of AC and DC charging interfaces and communication protocols between the vehicle and chargers, operating on differing standards, to be tested. For the EVSE test, the charging analyzer is combined with an electronic load that emulates an automotive battery to emulate an EV.

EV charging test solution

Verifying standard conformance and interoperability of charging infrastructure requires emulation of real-world charging stations in the lab. The Keysight Scienlab Charging Discovery System and Charging Discover test software enable automated in-lab testing of EV and EV supply equipment charging interfaces. Use it to perform all necessary conformance and interoperability tests to worldwide standards, including CCS, CHAdeMO, and GB/T.
