Project Summary

The sustainable integration of the electric vehicles requires an intelligent charging system for the real-time exchange of charge related data between FEVs and the grid in order to allow the management of:

  • High-current fast-charging for large numbers of FEVs in a brand-independent way
  • Price-adaptive charging/reverse-charging at optimum price for the customer
  • The real-time grid balancing according to spatial and temporal needs and capacities, influenced by the demand
  • (FEVs) and the supply side (unpredictability of regenerative energies)
  • Competent remote load charging process control in order to prevent damages of FEV batteries.

It is the objective of e-DASH to develop those IC Technologies and processes that are needed to achieve the real-time integration of "FEVs" in the European Electricity Grid to enable an optimum electricity price to the customer and at the same time allows an effective load balancing in the grid.

Great emphasis is placed on the "openness of the V2OEM Interface" granting access to multiple players maintaining the customers' choice.

e-DASH will become crucial to future electric road transport by providing the necessary intelligent charging system, which is able to balance locally and temporarily in almost real-time the electricity demand of large numbers of FEVs (fast charging) and instable regenerative energy supply.

The purpose of e-DASH

"e-DASH" aims at the harmonization of electricity demand in Smart Grids for sustainable integration of electric vehicles. This is addressed by an intelligent charging system supported with near real-time exchange of charge related data between EVs and the grid.

Adopting the e-DASH approach allows high-current fast-charging for large numbers of EVs in a brand-independent way and priceadaptive charging/reverse-charging at optimum price for the customer leading to increased demand of EVs. In order to prevent damages of costly EV batteries, sophisticated charge control is inevitable. Moreover e-DASH also focuses on near real-time grid balancing for highly variable demand/supply situations according to spatially and temporally changing energy requirements
(e.g. temporally connected EVs and regenerative energy sources).

The sustainable integration of electric vehicles requires near real-time exchange of charge related data between EVs and the grid in order to allow the management of:

  • high-current fast-charging for large numbers of EVs in a brandindependent way
  • price-adaptive charging/reverse-charging at optimum price for the customer to increase the desirability of EVs
  • the near real-time grid balancing according to spatial and temporal needs and capacities, be it influenced by the demand or the supply side (unpredictability of regenerative energy sources and simultaneous EV charging processes)
  • competent remote load charging process control in order to prevent damages of EV batteries.
