Plug-In Vehicle Conductive Charging, SAE J1772 Explained Web Seminar RePlay

I.D.# PD331046ON
Access Period: 30 days
Duration: 3.5 Hours

SAE J1772 - Electric Vehicle and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Conductive Charge Coupler is the first standard in the world reached by industry consensus that provides critical guidelines for safety, charging control and connectors used to charge plug in vehicles. Paving the way for an EV future, the standard accommodates the latest generation of vehicles that need to be plugged in for charging their high-energy batteries.

This course will uncover the details behind the SAE J1772 conductive charging interface. It will discuss overall plug-in vehicle charge strategy, electrical safety strategy, electrical and physical interface requirements and control strategy. Included in the course is background related to the National Electrical Code, third party listing requirements and necessary EMC and regulatory compliance. Upon completion of the webinar, the student will have enhanced knowledge of the properties of the Control Pilot and Proximity circuits and the necessary vehicle and Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) control responses necessary for SAE J1772 compliance.

Familiarity with SAE J1772 is strongly recommended. The document is available for purchase by those who may not already have access.
