Wiring Matters brings you an overview of electric vehicle charging. In Part 1, we discuss general requirements and domestic charging of electric vehicles, and we continue in Part 2 with standalone charging and protection against mechanical and environmental damage. This video does not take into account any changes made by Amendment 3 to the Wiring Regulations BS 7671:2008.

Watch part 2 at:
When Nikola Tesla invented the alternating current motor in 1887, he paved the way for the invention of the electric vehicle more than a century later. Electric vehicles could make gas- and diesel-powered vehicles obsolete by the year 2025, effectively ending the reign of the internal combustion engine.
The acceptance of EVs into car culture has already begun with the Tesla Model S winning the Motor Trend Car of the Year in 2013. And with electric car sales growing by 81 percent from 2017 to 2018, it seems electric cars could be the norm sooner rather than later.
Understanding how an electric vehicle works is actually much simpler than understanding how a gas- or diesel-powered car works. That’s why we created the infographic below — to help readers understand the basics of electric vehicles and how they could be instrumental in changing our environment for the better.
Batteries in electric vehicles are not the same as your typical ICE (internal combustion engine) vehicle’s battery. Electric vehicle batteries power everything in your car, most importantly the electric motor.
When a battery in an electric vehicle runs out of charge, you simply recharge it through grid electricity as you would your phone or laptop. Charging can be done at home through a wall outlet (there are many home charging setups) or at a designated charging station in a public parking area.
Almost all electric vehicles use lithium-ion batteries. These are low maintenance, lightweight, and more efficient than other batteries. Lithium-ion batteries tend to be more expensive to manufacture than nickel-metal hydride or lead-acid batteries.
Most lithium-ion batteries last for between 8 and 12 years, depending on the climate and maintenance schedule.
To charge an electric car, you just plug it into a charger connected to the electric grid. Charging occurs through the car’s electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE). Three levels of EVSEs exist, each with its own charging speeds and equipment.
Level 1 Home Charging
Level one charging uses a 120-volt plug and a standard outlet. Level one charging requires no special equipment and is typically done at home. Level one chargers take the longest time to charge your electric vehicle, averaging about three to five miles per hour of charge.
Level 2 EVSE Home Charging
Level two EVSEs use a 240-volt plug and typically need to be installed by an electrician. They can be used for either home or commercial charging. Many electric car automakers provide purchase options for level two EVSEs at the time of vehicle purchase, and private companies also offer electric vehicle chargers.
Level two chargers are much faster than level one chargers, offering up to 60 miles of range per hour of charge. They are capable of fully charging an electric car battery in about two hours.
Level 3 EVSE DC Fast Chargers
DC fast chargers are the charging stations you’ll see in parking lots around town. They can deliver up to 100 miles of power in about 20 minutes of charging. These highly specialized pieces of equipment aren’t compatible with all plug-in hybrid vehicles.
DC fast chargers can be accessed through payment apps or specific cards set up for use at public charging stations.
Batteries can store only direct current electricity, but many electric cars run on alternating current electricity. The inverter takes the direct current electricity and converts it into alternating current electricity for the electric motor to use.
The inverter controls the frequency of the alternating current sent to the electric motor, which essentially means the inverter controls the speed of the vehicle. It acts as the brain of the system, directing the motor and other components.
The induction motor is an AC motor, meaning it runs on alternating current electricity. This alternating current creates a rotating magnetic field within the induction motor which causes it to rotate. The speed at which the motor turns is based on the alternating current frequency sent from the inverter.
Induction motors work efficiently at any speed range, giving it a sizeable advantage over an internal combustion engine which only has limited efficiency and torque. This is why internal combustion engines need multiple gears, so that they can stay within their power band. Induction motors don’t need multiple gears because their power band doesn’t drop in efficiency and power.
Regenerative braking is a valuable feature of many electric cars. Regenerative braking allows the vehicle to recharge while decelerating by using the induction motor as a generator. The induction motor turns into a generator when the wheels and drivetrain rotate faster than does the induction motor.
That electricity is then sent back to the battery pack for later use.

Are you getting ready to build your own homemade electric car? Have you chosen a car to convert to electricity yet? If not, then here is some information to get you started.
Before getting started, it is always good to plan out the process that you will take to convert a car. You do not want to get into the middle of a conversion and realize that you need to begin again. An important part of the conversion process is the vehicle that you choose to convert.
Although pretty much any car can be converted into an electric car, there are just some cars that tend to be more efficient when converted. This is to not say that you should only pick cars that fall into this criteria. This information should just serve as a guide to be used if needed:
Build Homemade Electric Car Selection Criteria
Have you determined if you will be choosing a small car, sport utility vehicle, or a truck to convert? The best cars to be converted are small sedans that have the capacity and space for storage of your batteries. Pickup trucks are also great for conversion projects.
Experts suggest that you choose manual transmission over automatic transmission whenever possible. Manual transmissions tend to be more efficient than cars with automatic transmission.
Regardless of what vehicle you choose to convert, your vehicle must be able to support the added weight that will be required for your batteries and motor. This can vary anywhere from 200 to 500 lbs. You may need to check the weight rating of your vehicle. This can usually be found in your owners manual.
These are just some guidelines that you can use to select a vehicle for conversion. Once you select your vehicle to convert, then you are really on your way to driving your first electric car.
Stopping on State Highway 5 (SH5) en route to Napier to inspect an ABB EV charger which had 3 options – two via DC (CCS and ChaDeMo at 50kW) and Type 2 Mennekes AC at 22 kW. These chargers were accessible by RFID presumably via subscription to Unison Energy in NZ. We saw at least 2 of these well signed roadside EV chargers on the drive between Rotorua and Napier. Hopefully one day, we will have as many fast EV chargers dotted throughout Australia and NZ as there are currently service stations.

Electric Vehicle Dilemmas, lists many things to consider before purchasing an electric vehicle. My views have been gained from working for 44 years in the electrical industry and from my general interest in cars. This 1080p video is best viewed on a large screen. I will add comments here in the Description when I receive any updated Electric Vehicle information worth publishing. One day after I uploaded this video Auto Expert John Cadogan uploaded his video to YouTube called,
The truth about Bill Shorten’s proposed electric car future.
And just to clarify the acceleration from 60-100km/hr that I mentioned, that is from a steady 60km/hr. Because the batteries can weigh as much as the rest of the electric vehicle, there is a lot of inertia to get moving from 60km/hr when electric motors don’t have much torque. However, a petrol turbo engine is at its best at these higher speeds from 60-100km/hr, especially when the auto transmission initially changes down a gear or two.
Also, something I didn’t mention about range. Every petrol engine car can travel from Melbourne to Sydney in a day with just one short top-up of fuel along the way. Electric vehicles that don’t have fast charging, could take 3 days to get to Sydney, as they may need 2 long nights along the way to recharge the battery.
And forget about the idea of travelling in something like a Nissan Leaf v1 from Sydney to Perth, or from Adelaide to Darwin in less than a week, even if you can find battery chargers for your vehicle every 100-200km.
