Overview of strategies and architectures
To understand the field of smart charging and strategically position itself in the wider discussion, a UK-based DNO commissioned an overview of smart charging projects, architectures and strategies. Watture, as a subcontractor, contributed towards this with expertise on smart charging projects and insight in the market and technical setup of the different architectures.
With smart charging for residential customers, flexibility for the network can be unlocked. To understand various options and provide insight in the technical requirements for e.g. flexibility systems, substation communications and charging equipment, descriptions of the architecture of various highlighted examples were compared.
