TYPES OF CHARGERS

Electric Car Chargers Paddington

The three main types of EV chargers are – Rapid, Fast and Slow. Rapid charger is the quickest way to charge an EV, often used on long journeys. Fast chargers are common in public places and shopping centres. Slow chargers are the most popular method of charging EV, used by many owners to charge at home overnight.

EV CAR CHARGER INSTALLATION PROCESS IN Paddington

Your specialist installer will confirm the date and arrival time with you well in advance of the installation. Based on your power supply and parking, our installer will assist you in choosing the best position for your charger. Our installer will begin positioning the charger and then fix it by drilling and clipping the cable to the wall. After this the installer will turn off the power supply and install the RCBO and connect it to your main supply. Later the installer will conduct the final safety tests to ensure your home charger is ready to use. Our installer will then give you a full demo of your charger and guide you on what various lights mean and how to get in touch with us if you have any questions later. Lastly, we will need your Wi-Fi details to complete the set-up.

TETHERED OR UNTETHERED

Tethered Wall box chargers are much more convenient in comparison to untethered. More then 90% of our customers in Paddington opt for tethered which comes with a built-in lead whereas the Untethered comes with a socket only. With tethered, you simply park up and unwind the cable and plug in. We believe it’s a matter of personal choice and what suits you. At EV chargers London, we can supply and install both types of electric car charging points.

Smart EV Charging in Paddington

Smart EV charging reduces energy consumption, costs, and carbon dioxide emissions. It can also improve safety by preventing overcharging. Learn how it works. In this article, you'll discover how to find a charger that meets your needs. It's the latest way to charge your electric car, and the advantages are clear. Learn about the latest technology to maximize your safety and reduce your carbon footprint. But before you make a purchase, read up on the pros and cons.

Optimized EV charging reduces energy consumption

In order to optimize EV charging, we must first consider the peak demand for both electric vehicles and the power distribution grid. This peak demand can be extremely large and can result in blackouts or even power shortages. We can reduce this peak demand by minimizing the duration of timeslots with high power demand. This can be accomplished by defining ramp rates, the time-rate at which real power consumption in the system changes. We should also set ramp rate limits to prevent undesirable effects of rapid changes in load, such as large frequency deviations and loss of stability. Our goal is to minimize ramp rates and optimize EV charging to reduce energy consumption.

Reduces carbon dioxide emissions

Using smart EV charging stations can save electric car drivers PS110 per year. It reduces carbon emissions by over 20% and spreads electricity demand to avoid overloading the National Grid. The number of electric cars on UK roads is increasing rapidly, with 11 million predicted to be on the road by 2030. This technology can help utilities and other stakeholders reach their climate goals. However, it should be noted that these systems cannot replace conventional electricity grids.

Reduces costs

As the use of EVs grows, utilities must upgrade grid infrastructure. This means installing more distribution cables, substations, and circuitry to handle the extra load. According to a study by BCG, these investments will add up to nearly $2 billion per year by 2030. This amount of money will be passed onto consumers in the form of higher grid connection fees. The benefits of EV charging infrastructure are numerous, but one major concern is that they may not be affordable.

Improves safety

Electric vehicles increase the need for charging infrastructure. Smart charging stations should be able to reduce power or shut off their power during a power outage. This paper focuses on the design of smart EV charging infrastructure and the safety systems that must be present for it.
