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.

Learning Objectives
By connecting with this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Cite terminology used for plug-in vehicle charging
  • Comprehend and apply codes, standards and regulations for plug-in vehicle charging
  • Become proficient at the purpose and characteristics of the Control Pilot and Proximity control interfaces
  • Implement the required control state transitions and responses for charging
  • Comprehend the physical, mechanical, electrical, environmental and EMC requirements for EVSEs, charge connectors and vehicle inlets
  • Design vehicle or EVSE electrical interfaces and controls in accordance to the requirements of SAE J1772TM

Who Should Attend
Vehicle OEMs, Vehicle Tier 1 suppliers, EVSE/charge coupler equipment suppliers, Code inspectors, Code developers, Third party testing labs, Students, Electric Utilities, National Labs. This webinar will be best suited for individuals with a moderate understanding of plug-in vehicle charging.

This webinar will provide details to help assure vehicles and EVSEs are compliant to the intent of SAE J1772TM.
