What are the requirements for building a charging station and what are the advantages?

Charging station

Electric vehicles are the way of the future. Charging your automobile without a charging station is getting increasingly difficult as more charging stations become available. A regular, smart, or bidirectional charging station at home is the solution. There is always vacant space at the charging station, and it is also a wise financial investment. Let’s talk about how to get a charging station and how we can set it up for you.

You may charge your electric vehicle in a variety of ways. You’ll almost certainly have to charge (partially) on the road at a fast charging station. You may charge your car rapidly on the road in the Netherlands and neighboring countries at so-called ‘fast charging points.’

Advantages of fast charging

Electric vehicle charging station in India has the major benefit of being extremely efficient. Fast charging is the quickest (and, in many cases, the only) way to fully recharge a battery. You have to re-charged your battery to 80% capacity in roughly 30 minutes. In comparison, recharging your battery at a public charging station or at home (for those who have the luxury) can take anything from 6 to 10 hours. Fast charging is the only charging station that can compete with it.

Do you have to cover a large number of kilometers in a single ride, as well as return? You won’t be able to get it back with most batteries. Or do you get home with an almost empty tank and have to go back to work the next day? At a public charging station, your battery is frequently not fully charged. Electric driving would not be practical in practice without the ability to charge quickly.

Principle of a fast charger

A charger’s capacity is measured in kWh. A public charging station’s capacity is commonly 11 or 22 kW. If more current passes through it, particularly at least 43 kWh, we’re talking about a fast charger. The capacity of the later installations has increased to around 350 kWh. The faster an automobile can be charged, the bigger its capacity. Only the vehicle must be capable of doing so.

Charge between 20% and 80%

The use of a rapid charger increases the load on the vehicle’s battery. The capacity of an electric automobile can quickly deplete if it is often plugged in to a fast charger. When the battery is fully charged, the rapid charger will charge more slowly. In practice, you’ll use a fast charger to charge what you need until you need to use a charger again. In fact, you want to keep the charge between 20% and 80%. Usually, this suffices. During the charging process, which takes around 20 to 30 minutes, you stay close to the car and, if a gas station or roadhouse is nearby, you enjoy a cup of coffee.

What is required for the installation of a charging station?

Choice between fixed charging station

There are two methods for installing a charging station. You have the option of mounting it on the wall as a wall model (wall box) or attaching it to a separate pole. The charging speed is unaffected by this. Find out how far your electric vehicle is from a parking spot (so you can save on cable length).
