INCIT-EV Demonstrations in the city of Amsterdam and Utrecht area

USE CASE 1. Intelligent, user-centered two-way charging

The aim of this use case is to demonstrate the benefits of intelligent charging systems at the local level, from district and regional. To this end, 3 modes of electric vehicle charging will be demonstrated in the Amsterdam – Utrecht área

Regional load aggregation: by developing algorithms that will be applied to the EV so that the user can choose the optimised load mode to obtain economic benefits while adding load to the network.

Two-way charging at community level: enabling two-way charging in a district in the Amsterdam-Utrecht area to be used by a car-sharing company whose journeys are usually short and downtime long.

Intelligent charging for private car parks: similar to the previous case, the development of

management algorithms required for the use of two-way chargers in private car parks.

Demonstrations in the city of Paris

USE CASE 2. Wireless dynamic load for a city line

 A dynamic inductive loading lane will be implemented in the city of Paris that for urban transport vehicles such as buses, can be loaded while waiting at the city’s traffic lights. With a power of 120kW over a length of 25 meters, it is expected to increase traffic flow in the center of congested cities.

USE CASE 3. Wireless dynamic load for long distance routes

A dynamic inductive load lane will be implemented in a test circuit to study the potential use of high-speed wireless loading on highways. With a power of 90kW along 80 meters, it is expected to be able to charge vehicles circulating up to 120km/h.

INCIT-EV Demonstrations in the city of Torino

USE CASE 4. HUB charger in a rest area around Turin

During the INCIT-EV project, the possibility of placing several charging systems located at the same point ina parking  and supported by a virtual battery system will be demonstrated. Specifically, they will be demonstrated:

  • – 10 bi-directional 3.6kW chargers
  • – 1 x 150kW one-way super charger
  • – 1 100kW static inductive super charger
  • – A dynamic inductive charger with an input area of 20kW

Demonstrations in the city of Tallinn

USE CASE 5. Super chargers in European corridors

The objective of this use case is to demonstrate an ultra-fast 175kW charging system with bi-directional capabilities to support the power grids on highways, where grid reinforcements are most needed.

Specifically, some of the capabilities of this charger will be:

  • To provide an active power filter to stabilize the power grid during power outages
  • voltage.
  • A cloud-based system with charger information so that users can make optimized use of their vehicles, taking into account route planning.
  • Long cables together with optimized cooling systems that allow the chargers work in sub-zero and high heat conditions, without decreasing their efficiency.

INCIT-EV Demonstrations in the city of Zaragoza

USE CASE 6. Low power bi-directional chargers and personal mobility e-vehicle charging

Development of medium power chargers connected to each other in direct current. These chargers will allow energy exchange with nearby building installations, as well as with other vehicles, renewable generation sources, or batteries, providing auxiliary services to the infrastructure and the electrical network.

The prototype installed in Zaragoza will be a single system composed of:

1 V2X CHAdeMO charger (7,4kW – 15kW)

1 V2X CSS2 COMBO charger (7,4kW – 15kW)

4 Chargers for electric bicycle

USE CASE 7. Static inductive charger for taxis and public vehicles

CIRCE will design, develop and demonstrate two inductive load systems with a power of 50 kW at 85kHz.

The system will allow charging up to 1.66kWh within 2 minutes of shutdown, resulting in an estimated additional range of 12km thanks to the load.
