Interconnection Requirements for Onboard, Utility-Interactive Inverter Systems
This SAE Standard J3072 establishes interconnection requirements for a utility-interactive inverter system which is integrated into a plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) and connects in parallel with an electric power system (EPS) by way of conductively-coupled, electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). This standard also defines the communication between the PEV and the EVSE required for the PEV onboard inverter to be configured and authorized by the EVSE for discharging at a site. The requirements herein are intended to be used in conjunction with IEEE 1547 Standard for Interconnecting Distributed Resources with Electric Power Systems and IEEE 1547.1 Standard for Conformance Test Procedures for Equipment Interconnecting Distributed Resources with Electric Power Systems.
Rationale: The effort to update this Standard will incorporate public reviews, comments and viewpoints, while additional testing and early implementation requirements from IEEE standards that have also been updated since the 1st publication of this Standard. Results of this effort will then lead to a republished version.
