6.1. Power cable
The electrician is responsible for selecting the power cable type and size & safety components appropriate for the specific situation and according to local regulations;
Wire for the current at the maximum charging speed of the charge point under continuous load;
Calculate with a power factor of 0.8;
Calculate with a maximum allowable voltage drop over the cable that is specified by local regulations.*;
Use shielded cable for underground cabling;
Cable thickness: Ø 10 - 22.5 mm;
Wire cross section
Solid wires: maximum 10 mm2;
Stranded wires: 6 mm2 with end ferrules.
_NOTICE_ The charge point can be limited between 6 A and 32 A, as described in chapter 18.3. Switching on the charge point.
*Shell Recharge is not responsible for voltage fluctuation in the grid. The electric vehicle may be more sensitive to voltage drop.
6.2. Data cable
Ethernet cable: Standard CAT5 or CAT6 UTP ground cable with T568B-wired RJ45 connectors;
DPM data cable: 4-wire Bus-cable (24 AWG minimal) or 4 pairs of wires of a standard CAT5e or CAT6 UTP ground cable.
_NOTICE_
Only use a good quality wire stripper when stripping data cable wires. Never use a knife or cutters as these will damage the copper wires.
The maximum length of data cables between two devices is 100 meters.
Install underground data cables in PVC conduits.
TC06 - Always At least 20 cm apart or install power and data cables in separate conduits. (Check and refer to guideline).
6.3. Earthing
The electrician is always responsible for selecting a cable cross-section appropriate for the specific situation and according to regulations;
TN-system: PE-cable (PEN conductor is not allowed);
TT-system: separately installed earthing electrode < 100 Ohm spreading resistance.
IT-system: only 1-phase compatible. Transformer required for 3-phase.
6.4. Required nominal input voltage at charge point
Single phase*: 230 V ± 10 % - 50 Hz
Triple phase*: 400 V (3 × 230 V + N) ± 10% - 50 Hz
* 3-phase charge point can also be connected to a 1-phase installation. In this case the charge point can only charge on 1-phase. Only connect L1 on the terminal block of the charge point;
* Some electric vehicles can have a smaller voltage tolerance than 10%. If you experience charging issues and see that the voltage is around the edges of the 10% voltage tolerance, check if the electric vehicle type is compatible to charge on your measured voltage.
6.5. Electrical protection
MCB
B- or C-characteristic*;
The installer must select a suitable MCB to match the charging limit of the charge point, taking into account MCB manufacturer specifications, selectivity rules, and EV-Ready guidelines.
MCBs shall comply with one of the following standards: IEC 60898-1 or IEC 60947-2 or IEC 61009-1.
_NOTICE_ Due to rising temperatures that occur under continuous load, derating of the overcurrent protection can happen. This causes the breaker to trip sooner than the rated current when temperatures within the consumer unit rise above 40 ºC, which is practically always the case when charging a vehicle. Therefore, it is advised to set a lower charging limit of the charge point than the rated current of the protection of the charge point:
Set the limit at 80% of the rated current, when the overcurrent protection is built into an existing consumer unit between other electrical components.
Set the limit at 90% of the rated current, when the overcurrent protection is built into a dedicated enclosure with sufficient cooling, or when a simultaneity factor of 1 has been used in the design of the consumer unit.
* B characteristic is advised due to the maximum allowed cable length and cost perspective;
MCB requirements for EV-Ready according to EV17
Each charge point shall be individually protected by a circuit-breaker for overcurrent protection.
The circuit-breaker curve shall be:
curve B or C for single-phase charge point and mode 2 installations;
curve C for three-phase charge point.
Whatever the conditions of use (temperature,...), the design of the distribution of the installation will have to allow the supply of the power corresponding to the gauge of the charge point.
Overcurrent protection shall have a gauge of not less than 125 percent of the gauge of the charge point or the gauge of the supply in mode 2.
The charge point shall be protected by a circuit-breaker with a gauge:
20 A for a 16 A single or three-phase charge point;
25 A for a 20 A single or three-phase charge point;
32 A for a 25 A single or three-phase charge point;
40 A for a 32 A single or three-phase charge point;
80 A for a 63 A three-phase charge point.
RCD
According to IEC 60364-7-722:2015, this charge point must be installed with at least an RCD type A**
** The electrician is responsible to select a suitable RCD to match the local rules and regulations. Please note that these may be different from the international rules and regulations.
IEC 60364-7-722:2015, paragraph 722.531.2.101:
Except for circuits using the protective measure of electrical separation, each connecting point shall be protected by its own RCD of at least type A, having a rated residual operating current not exceeding 30 mA.
Where the EV charging station is equipped with a socket-outlet or vehicle connector complying with the IEC 62196 series, protective measures against DC fault current shall be taken, except where provided by the EV charging station. The appropriate measures, for each connection point, shall be as follows:
RCD type B; or
RCD type A and appropriate equipment that ensures disconnection of the supply in case of DC fault current above 6 mA.
RCDs shall comply with one of the following standards: IEC 61008-1, IEC 61009-1, IEC 60947-2 or IEC 62423.
_NOTICE_ When installing according to EV-Ready guidelines, every type A RCD shall have a high immunity: type HPI, SI, HI, KV … depending on the supplier.
_NOTICE_ Use an RCD with neutral
RCBO
