AeroVironment licenses PNNL EV smart charger controller technology

Green Car Congress

The PNNL technology tells a vehicle’s battery charger when to start and stop charging based upon existing conditions on the electrical grid. has licensed smart charging controller technology developed at the US Department of Energy (DOE) Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) for incorporation into its charging station equipment. If an unexpected event on the grid causes a rapid drop in the AC frequency, the charging system will stop charging, providing a grid “shock absorber.”
