This part of IEC 61980 applies to the supply device for charging electric road vehicles using wireless methods at standard supply voltages ratings per IEC 60038 up to 1 000 V AC and up to 1 500 V DC.
Electric road vehicles (EV) cover road vehicles, including plug-in hybrid road vehicles (PHEV) that derive all or part of their energy from on-board rechargeable energy storage systems (RESS)
This standard also applies to Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) equipment supplied from on-site storage systems (e.g. buffer batteries).
The aspects covered in this standard include,
the characteristics and operating conditions of a supply device, the specification for required level of electrical safety of a supply device,
communication between EV device and vehicle to enable and control WPT,
efficiency, alignment and other activities to enable WPT, specific EMC requirements for a supply device.
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.
This standard does not apply to:
safety aspects related to maintenance, WPT system for trolley buses, rail vehicles and vehicles designed primarily for use off-road, any safety or EMC requirements for the vehicle side.
