Alexandria, Jan. 15 -- Weave Grid has sought a patent for optimized charging of electric vehicles over distribution grid. Bhargava Apoorv and Taggart John Marshall developed the invention.
The patent application number is 16/925167.
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has released the abstract. According to the abstract, "Techniques are presented for scheduling the charging of electric vehicles (EVs) that protect the resources of local low voltage distribution networks. From utilities, data on local low voltage distribution networks, such as the rating of a distribution transformer through which a group of EVs are supplied, is provided to a load manager application. Telematics information on vehicle usage is provided from the EVs, such as by way of the original equipment manufacturer. From these data, the load manager application determines schedules for charging the group of EVs through a shared low voltage distribution network so that the capabilities of the local low voltage distribution network are not exceeded while meeting the needs of the EV user. Charging schedules are then transmitted to the on-board control systems of the EVs for implementation."
