When you see the word OCTT many of you may be confused, so today I will take you through it. OCTT is the Compliance Test tool for OCPP implementers to test their devices on protocol conformity. With this tool you can test your OCPP 2.0.1 and OCPP 1.6 implementation and check if you have implemented the OCPP specification correctly. OCTT is our platform for testing OCPP implementations of a Charging Station Management System (CSMS), a Charging Station (CS) or a Charging Station Software Stack (CSSS). While the focus when developing OCTT has been to support OCPP version 2.0.1, this is being cur ..read more

How to Choose Between Fast and Slow Charging for EVs?
SETEC POWER
by Ye Chen
2M ago
Longer Range with Slow Charging Slow charging is acknowledged for providing a longer driving range compared to fast charging. This difference stems mainly from how the battery behaves under rapid charging conditions. With fast charging, the current and voltage increase (voltage = current × resistance) leads to battery polarization. This process can prematurely trigger the battery’s maximum charge voltage, creating the illusion of a full charge. However, in reality, the battery’s electrode materials have not fully reacted, resulting in what’s commonly known as ‘phantom charge.’ Combining Fast ..read more

The Benefits of Dynamic Charging of Electric Vehicles
SETEC POWER
by Ye Chen
3M ago
When an electric car is plugged to a DC charger, the car sends a message to the charger, requesting a specific amount of power. The charger starts the charging session based on this request. The charging curves of electric passenger cars are strongly declining by nature. If the charging curves were more stable throughout the charging session, the need for dynamic charging would be smaller. In other words: if the cars would ask for a steady amount of power throughout the charging session, there would be no need for dynamic charging. The charging curves of electric vehicles also massively differ ..read more
