Electric vehicles charging systems rely on IEC International Standards By Morand Fachot As electric vehicles EVs become more popular in many parts of the world, ensuring that charging systems for these operate safely and reliably is central to wider EV adoption. A new edition of the general requirements for these has just been published. It is a complete overhaul and much expanded version of the previous edition. The number of these so-called battery-powered EVs BEVs is expected to overtake conventional vehicle powered by internal combustion engines ICEs in coming decades. Charging batteries for BEVs can be done through well-established conductive systems using charging outlets connecting to the vehicles via special cables, sockets and plugs, or through wireless power transfer WPT , which is a more recent charging system.
