This document defines the requirements and operation of the on-board vehicle equipment that enables magnetic field wireless power transfer (MF-WPT) for traction battery charging of electric vehicles. It is intended to be used for passenger cars and light duty vehicles.
This document addresses the following aspects for an EV device:
- safety requirements;
- transferred power and power transfer efficiency;
- ground clearance of the EV device;
- functionality with associated off-board systems under various conditions and independent of manufacturer;
- test procedures.
EV devices that fulfil the requirements in this document are intended to operate with supply devices that fulfil the MF-WPT related requirements in the IEC 61980 series.
NOTE 1 Charging of a vehicle in motion is not considered in this edition.
NOTE 2 Bi-directional power transfer is not considered in this edition.
