  • Abstract

    Abattery-charged Electric Vehicle(EV) such as Plug-in Electric Vehicles(PEV) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles(PHEV) has been developing fast due to energy efficiency andenvironmental problems. To commercialize these PEVs, an Electric Vehicle ChargingStation(EVSE) should be installed completely. An international standards organization,ISO/IEC has selected the HomePlug Green PHY(HPGP) technology as acommunication technology for an EVSE, and is pushing to standardize the ISO/IEC15118 Vehicle to grid communication interface. The Korea Electric PowerCorporation(KEPCO) has selected the ISO/IEC 12139-1 High Speed Power LineCommunication(HS-PLC) as Advanced Metering Infrastructure(AMI). HS-PLC andHPGP have an interference problem because of the use of the same frequency band. Inthis paper, we tested the coexistence between HS-PLC and HPGP in Korea AMI-EVSE.HS-PLC signal is coupled to the Main line. HPGP signal is coupled to the ControlPilot(CP) line, in order to enable bidirectional HPGP communications between oneElectric Vehicle Supply Equipment(EVSE) and one EV. The interference problemsbetween HS-PLC and HPGP are observed through the Coexistence test. Also, weanalyze the system stability effects of the KoreaAMI and the EVSE.



    With rising oil prices and threatening environmental problems, developed countries arestriving to develop electric vehicles as replacements for existing vehicles with internalcombustion engines. The replacements aim to reduce environmental pollutant emissionsand to boost energy efficiency. According to their electric energy use ratio, EVs aredivided into Abattery-charged EV(Electric Vehicle), HEV(Hybrid EV), and PHEV(Plug-in Hybrid EV). To enable diverse EVs to successfully make a safe landing on theglobalautomobilemarket, EVcharging infrastructures shouldbeperfectly installed[1].Furthermore, to stabilize EV charging and support diverse value-added services,communication equipment between EVs and Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment(EVSE)are important, and ISO/IEC have selected PLC(Power Line Communication)technology as an EV communication technology, and are pushing to standardizethe vehicle-to-grid communication interface (ISO/IEC 15118) [2].

  • AMR(Automatic Meter Reading), is the technology of automatically collectingconsumption, diagnostic, and status data from smart meter(energy metering devices) andtransferring that data to a central database for billing, troubleshooting, and analyzing.KEPCO(Korea Electric Power Company) started massive installation of smartmeter with PLC module of ISO/IEC 12139-1 High-Speed PowerLine Communication(HS-PLC) in2010. Nationwide smart meter installation will be completed by 2020. (19Mhouseholds). KEPCO is expanding the AMI(Advanced Metering Infrastructure)based on theAMR network.

    ISO/IEC 15118-3 describes PLC technology of HPGP on control pilot linebetween EV and EVSE(Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment). HPGP uses the1.8MHz to 30MHz frequency band. KEPCO adopted HS-PLC on main line todeploy AMR. HS-PLC uses the 2.15MHz to 23.15MHz frequency band. HS-PLC and HPGP have an interference problem because of the use of thesame frequency band.In this paper, we tested the coexistence between HS-PLC and HPGP inKorea AMI-EVSE. HS-PLC signal is coupled to the Main line. HPGP signalis coupled to the Control Pilot(CP) line, in order to enable bidirectional HPGPcommunications between one Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment(EVSE) andone EV. The interference problems between HS-PLC and HPGP areobserved through the Coexistence test. Also, we analyze the systemstability effects of the Korea AMI and the EVSE.

    II. Vehicle to grid communication interfaceISO/IEC 15118 specifies the communication between Electric Vehicles (EV),including Battery Electric Vehicles and Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles, and the ElectricVehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE). As the communication parts of this genericequipment are the Electric Vehicle Communication Controller (EVCC) and the SupplyEquipment Communication Controller (SECC).
