The Dynamic load balancing for home EV charging

When the users of the world turn to drive electric vehicle or plan to drive, it’s useful to think about the charging options. If you choose your own charging stations, there will be implications for your electricity network. By charging an EV, you’re using more power, and you will have the risk of blowing the fuse box and losing power. Dynamic load balancing prevents your energy network from overloading and failing. Dynamic Load Balancing is an intelligent solution for EV charging that safely balances energy usage between EVs and other appliances in a building in real time.

Why choose an EV charger with Dynamic load balancing?

When home appliances are working at the same time, such as air conditioner, washing machine, oven and other energy-intensive equipment, the circuit breaker will trip. In order to prevent electric circuit overload, in addition to circuit breakers, people also try to turn off some working electrical appliances to reduce the load. However, it is not only inconvenient, but also somewhat disruptive. To avoid electric circuits overload, using a dynamic load balancing EV charging station, it can monitor the electrical load on the circuit and intelligently allocate available capacity to the devices that need it most, allowing them to operate simultaneously without overloading the circuit.

How does dynamic load balancing work?

Dynamic load balancing is by using CTs to monitor the total input current in real time and transmit real-time energy usage data to the charging management system, which automatically prioritizes control of different electrical appliances and allocates available power to ensure the most efficient use when charging electric vehicles and other electrical appliances, utilize available power and avoid electric circuit overloading.

Once we use electrical appliances such as oven, washing machines and refrigerators, etc., the dynamic load balancing will limit the power supply to the EV charger, speed up or slow down, or even stop the EV charging process to supply power to other appliances, because the EV charger consumes more energy. If these appliances are turned off, the charging speed of the EV charger will resume or increase again.

Dynamic load balancing allows one or more electric vehicles to be charged concurrently and automatically balances the distribution of available power between the vehicles. Of course, dynamic load balancing can also concentrate power in one vehicle and slow down other charging vehicles, so the owners of multiple electric vehicles can prioritize which vehicle to charge according to their preferences.

What can the users benefit from Dynamic Load Balancing?

It has many advantages to use a dynamic load balancing EV charging station. Below is the list for your reference.

1.  Avoid electric circuit overloading

The main advantage of dynamic load balancing is that the power network will not be overloaded. In addition, dynamic load balancing ensures that the charging time of your electric vehicle is as short as possible without the need to reinforce the instrument cabinet.

2. Safe charging

With Dynamic Load Balancing, your power connections will be used safely and optimally. The charging station is always in touch with your instrument cabinet. In this way, it is always possible to monitor how much power is available. All appliances in the home are prioritized over charging stations. The remaining power can be used to charge the car. This way you can prevent other devices from being affected. This way you can keep using it while the car is charging.

3. Charge many EVs simultaneously

A dynamic load balancing charging station is ideal for charging two or more electric vehicles. If you have two or more electric vehicles, dynamic load balancing ensures both cars are charged without overloading the grid. Also, if you have a smart charging station, you can choose which car should charge faster or which car should stop charging.
