Chargepoint Management System (CPMS)

ElectrAssure provides an intelligent EV chargepoint management system.

It is a cloud-based charge point network software platform that connects the user to the hardware. Operators have access to a variety of benefits giving them access to highly useful tools and data provided through an easy to utilise dashboard on their computers.

Dynamic Load Management

Dynamic Load Management (DLM) controls the EV charging load to maximise the power available to each vehicle but doesn’t exceed the available supply.

In the example illustrated by the chart below, overnight and between 09.00 and 16.00 the Total Building Load, including EV charging, is lower than the electrical supply capacity to the building. At these times DLM does not restrict the power available to the EV chargers.

Beginning at 05.00 am general fleet and employee electric vehicles arrive in the car park and are put on charge. As a result, the Total Building Load would exceed the main supply capacity between 07.30 and 09.30.

Similarly, the company electric vans begin to arrive back at 14.30 and between 16.00 and 20.00 the Total Building Load exceeds the main supply capacity.

DLM monitors the main supply. During peak demand, DLM will restrict the power available to the vehicles on charge to protect the main supply. It will also balance the load to enable those vehicles with the lowest state of charge to charge at higher power.
