In order for the growing share of electric vehicles on our roads to continue gaining momentum, there needs to be sufficient charging infrastructure and, consequently, successful integration into our power grids. However, detailed monitoring of power grid components and segments in the low-voltage range does not yet take place across the board. The distribution system operator is therefore faced with the challenge of monitoring its own network. It needs to establish cost-efficient methods of recording all relevant measured variables from the outgoing feeders in low-voltage grids to guarantee network stability.
This requires the collection of measured values such as current and voltage and their transmission in variable time intervals (e.g. minute values). These captured values can be transferred to a scalable cloud system, in compliance with all requirements of the GDPR. Furthermore, data access from different end devices must be coordinated and configuration via remote access must be enabled.
