Electric vehicle conductive charging systems (IEC61851 - EN61851)

Applies to EV supply equipment for charging electric road vehicles, with a rated supply voltage up to 1 000 V AC or up to 1 500 V DC and a rated output voltage up to 1 000 V AC or up to 1 500 V DC. Electric road vehicles (EV) cover all road vehicles, including plug-in hybrid road vehicles (PHEV), that derive all or part of their energy from on-board rechargeable energy storage systems (RESS). The aspects covered in this standard include:
- the characteristics and operating conditions of the EV supply equipment;
- the specification of the connection between the EV supply equipment and the EV;
- the requirements for electrical safety for the EV supply equipment.
