OCA Webinar: OCPP & Plug and Charge on February 3rd

OCA Webinar: OCPP & Plug and Charge on February 3rd

You can now register for OCA Webinar: OCPP & Plug and Charge on February 3rd.

In this webinar we will look at the combination of OCPP 1.6 and ISO 15118 Plug & Charge.

The OCPP 2.0 specification (first published in April 2018 and revised by OCPP 2.0.1 in April 2020) supports the use of ISO 15118 edition 1 between a Charging Station and an Electric Vehicle (EV). All functionality that requires Charging Station to Charging Station Management System (CSMS) communication is supported: managing ISO 15118 certificates in both the Charging Station and the EV, handling Plug and Charge authorization and Smart Charging using ISO 15118. 

The OCPP version 1.6 (published October 2015) does not support ISO 15118 messages. However, some OCPP implementers have asked the Open Charge Alliance if an intermediate solution, combining both OCPP 1.6 and the ISO 15118 Plug & Charge functionality would be possible.

We have an Application Note about this subject available on our website. 

This application note describes how to use the data transfer mechanism in OCPP 1.6 to exchange messages for ISO 15118 certificate management and Plug and Charge (excluding the smart charging functionality). The data structure used in the DataTransfer is based on the messages defined at OCPP 2.0.1, but are slightly simplified. Please refer to Generic DataTransfer fields for an example how this is done. This application note describes the use cases only on a higher level. Please refer to the OCPP 2.0.1 specification for more detailed information.

The webinar is open to all OCPP enthusiasts and no membership is required!
