Plug & Charge "End-to-End Testing"

In cooperation with HUBJECT

Date: November 28 - 30, 2023

Location: Cleveland, OH, USA
Host: Lincoln Electric

CharIN has extended the scope of the Testival with an additional testing option. Together with our technology partner Hubject, we offer the possibility to perform Plug & Charge end-to-end testing.

What does this mean?

In addition to the Plug & Charge Conformance Testing as part of the standard Testival ticket, you can test the interoperability of Plug & Charge under real conditions. Hubject provides a CPO backend, an eMSP service and a Plug & Charge ecosystem. The CPO Backend and the eMSP Service are connected to the Plug & Charge Ecosystem and participating EVSEs can connect to the CPO Backend via OCPP.

With this Testival setup you can perform the following tests (good and bad cases):

EVSE

EVSE

  • EVSE Leaf Certificate installation via OCPP
  • V2G / MO Root Certificate installation via OCPP
EV

EV

  • Installation of Contract Certificate over the air via OEM Telematics Backend (optional)
  • Installation of Contract Certificate via EVSE – CPO Backend – Plug & Charge Ecosystem
EV – EVSE – CPO Backend / Plug & Charge Ecosystem

EV – EVSE – CPO Backend / Plug & Charge Ecosystem

  • Contract Authentication (TLS)
  • Contract Authorization

Depending on the availability of the test participants and the characteristics of their product implementations (EV, EVSE, test system), there are three test options:

  1. EVSE <-> EV: If there are EV’s and EVSE’s that fully support Plug & Charge and at least one side has already performed a conformance test, the EV and EVSE can test together.
  2. EVSE <-> Emulator as EV reference implementation for the case the EV does not support Plug & Charge in conformance with the standard.
  3. EV <-> Emulator as EVSE reference implementation in case the EVSE does not support Plug & Charge in conformance with the standard.

All tests are supported on-site by Hubject Plug & Charge experts. In addition to the tests at the Testival, the PnC End-to-End Test package includes a pre-check of the products to be tested. The Hubject experts will assist you in preparing the EV or EVSE for testing for up to 4 hours.

The Plug & Charge End-to-End Test Package is offered for $2,500. You may select this option as a part of your event registration.
