Electric vehicle wireless power transfer (WPT) systems - Part 2: Specific requirements for communication between electric road vehicle (EV) and infrastructure


This Part of IEC 61980 addresses communication and activities of magnetic field wireless power transfer (MF-WPT) systems. The requirements in this document are intended to be applied for MF-WPT systems according to IEC 61980-3 and ISO 19363. The aspects covered in this document include: – operational and functional characteristics of the MF-WPT communication system and related activities – operational and functional characteristics of the positioning system The following aspects are under consideration for future documents: – requirements for two- and three-wheel vehicles, – requirements for MF-WPT systems supplying power to EVs in motion, and – requirements for bidirectional power transfer Note: Any internal communication at Supply device or EV device is not in the scope of this document
