Cooperation on eMobility standardization was the focus of discussion during a Transatlantic Roundtable organized by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN),buy microsoft office 2010 Online in Australia, Compare Prices of 1 Products from the best Stores.

Save with MyShopping.com.au! the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC), and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), which took place in Brussels on November 28-29.

This event brought together technical experts from industry, government, and other stakeholders from both sides of the Atlantic to compare and discuss standardization priorities for electric vehicles (EVs) outlined in the October 2011 Report of the CEN- CENELEC Focus Group on European Electro-Mobility and the April 2012 Standardization Roadmap for Electric Vehicles - Version 1.0, developed by the ANSI Electric Vehicles Standards Panel (EVSP). Information was shared on cooperative efforts already underway among organizations involved in electric vehicle standardization such as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), SAE International,Buy cheap visio 2010 professional Product Activation Key - on Windows-Product.com. and Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL).

The discussions in Brussels last week concentrated on four key areas:

-- Coupler safety and interoperability, fast charging
Many relevant international standards are already in place or in progress. Dialogue between the different standards organizations is improving,he GE In-line Coupler easily adds a telephone at a different location without installing a new jack. Great for connecting 2 line cords to create a longer cord and industry is working to make ISO and IEC standards address the different charging scenarios as comprehensively as possible, for instance through incorporating the SAE J1772(TM) combo coupler. There will always be some slight differences in coupler configurations as a result of specific regional electric grid requirements.

-- Vehicle-to-grid communications - integrating the electric vehicle with its infrastructure
There is a need for common standards for communication between the vehicle and the grid, and to address roaming of electric vehicles and smart charging. Harmonization of the communication protocols is already taking place between IEC and SAE but further work is needed.China Optical Distribution Frame.

Efforts are also underway to address various interoperability issues when an EV is roaming between charging networks and to address communication of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) metering data. As smart grid technologies continue to evolve, communications interoperability will require intensified collaboration among relevant actors, including automakers, charging network and utility providers, and standards bodies.

-- Wireless charging
Early cooperation among standardizers is taking place, including at the international level, and will help to avoid future compatibility issues. Safety aspects and seamless charging are challenges that standardization must address.

-- Safety of electric vehicle infrastructure and batteries
Much standards work has been undertaken to ensure the safety of lithium-ion batteries and EVSE. Additional investigation into safe storage, transport and interoperability aspects of EV batteries is needed, for example to support the battery exchange infrastructure market, and extensive work is still needed on testing in line with standards.

Participants acknowledged that a number of organizations produce globally relevant standards following open, transparent, and consensus-based processes. While one global standard is always the preferred objective, intellectual property, copyright, and commercial issues sometimes result in more than one standards organization working on the same or similar issues. Regulatory and/or infrastructure differences between regions can also result in variations. In order to prevent the proliferation of conflicting standards, the meeting participants agreed to continue their cooperation on promoting and enabling the harmonization and alignment of standards in this area.microsoft office 2007 professional plus includes essential Office software like MS Word 2007.

Participants also recognized that governments, including the European Commission and other inter-governmental bodies, must play their part by working towards the increased harmonization of relevant laws and regulations.

The decision to organize the Transatlantic eMobility Standardization Roundtable was prompted by the eMobility work plan put forward by the Transatlantic Economic Council (TEC) in November 2011, and following comments made by European trade commissioner Karel De Gucht and U.S. deputy national security advisor for international economic affairs Michael Froman at an October 2011 ANSI-ESO conference on transatlantic partnerships that can promote economic growth.
