How Does Vehicle2Grid Mode Work?
Vehicle2Grid mode is a new type of technology that enables the vehicle owner to sell their electric vehicle’s energy back to the grid.
For example, when the car is plugged in, the owner can earn money by selling excess power into the grid.
When there’s no demand for certain types of energy on the grid, then this system can absorb it and store it in batteries for later use. Clean energy battery storage is a beneficial process where power generated from a renewable source, such as solar or wind, is stored in a battery for later use. When the power grid has dirty energy you can switch to the battery storage to remain under renewable energy conditions. This is a more environmentally friendly way of using energy because it doesn’t rely on fossil fuels. These batteries also help regulate the electric grid by providing a steady supply of electricity.
In the future, drivers will be able to increase their wallet size and decrease their carbon footprint via vehicle2grid.
How Does SAE J2954 Wireless Charging Work?
Wireless charging is a newer technology than plug-in electric vehicles, but it’s quickly gaining ground.
Wireless chargers charge electric vehicles by transmitting power through an electromagnetic field by means of electromagnetic induction. A vehicle must be equipped with a receiver that converts the energy into electricity and stores it in the cars battery. Additionally the vehicle must be in relatively close proximity to the power source or charging pad.
Wireless charging is used in electric vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf and BMW i3, and will lead to widespread adoption of electric vehicles.
The SAE J2954 standard was created to provide a wireless system for electric vehicles.
Whenever an electric vehicle needs to be charged, this device will automatically determine the time needed and the current charge rate/voltage. The standard will also turn off when it has completed charging.
The SAE J2954 Level 2 Charger is an electric vehicle (EV) battery charger that offers a charging rate of 3.7 kW, 7.7 kW and 11 kW. Theses variations of charge rates are named WPT 1, WPT 2, and WPT 3, which stands for Wireless Power transfer. The charging time is dependent on the size of the battery pack, standard plug-in chargers at 11kW can take 8 hours to fully charge. Therefore it could take 8 hours or longer to fully charge an electric vehicle on the SAE J2954 standard. Some manufacturers claim that a full charge can be achieved in 4.5 hours. Larger batteries will take longer to charge due to the number of cells in the pack.
The SAE J2954 Level 2 Charger has a safety protection system that protects against overcharging and provides a standard voltage output for multiple plug types, including 12V, 24V, and 32V. It also detects faults in wiring connections and protects against shorts across plugs or adapters by shutting down power during charging.
What are the Benefits of the New SAE J2954 Wireless Standard With Vehicle2Grid Mode?
The SAE J2954 is a wireless standard that has been developed to allow vehicles and grid systems to communicate. It also enables the vehicle to charge or send energy back to the grid system.
Vehicle2grid mode can be used for automated sustainability. The vehicle can unload electricity from its battery and store it in the grid system. This mode enables the vehicle to become a fully renewable source of energy generation and storage which significantly contributes to sustainability efforts worldwide.
Combining Vehicle2Grid with the SAE J2954 wireless standard is a way for vehicle owners to automate sustainability effortlessly. Today we drive up, park and go into a store with little thought. In the future we can drive up, wirelessly charge, and maximize clean energy usage. Vehicles driving with renewable energy stored in their batteries can offload this energy through a companies parking lot that may need extra carbon offset. Of course the benefit to the customer is that said company would pay a premium for your energy. This concept is still in its early phase but future automation through advanced technology can greatly benefit sustainability goals.
The new SAE J2954 wireless standard is a step forward for electric cars. Combining it with Vehicle2Grid mode will make it much easier for electric cars to use renewable energy sources like solar and wind and feed this power back into the grid during peak hours, autonomously. These advancements in our infrastructure will have major benefits towards sustainability efforts.
