How Does Wireless Dynamic Load Balancing Revolutionize EV Charging?

Home How Does Wireless Dynamic Load Balancing Revolutionize EV Charging?

With the booming growth of the electric vehicle market and the increasing demand for smart charging, we are witnessing the full-scale eruption of the electric vehicle era. As market demands shift and technology advances, Dynamic Load Balancing (DLB) is gradually transitioning from traditional wired connectivity to wireless. What advantages does Wireless Dynamic Load Balancing (WDLB) have over its wired counterpart? Is it necessary to adopt WDLB? Questions like these will be explored today. 

What are the Current Problems?

EV chargers, being high-power devices, pose a burden on the power grid, especially when running concurrently with other electric appliances. This highlights the issue of power balance between chargers and other appliances, particularly during peak hours. The accompanying threat of grid overload cannot be ignored, necessitating an effective way to alleviate the grid’s burden. Dynamic Load Balancing, born out of these requirements, effectively addresses these issues, but the installation of wired DLB requires digging the ground to wire, adding not only time and effort but also costs. In this scenario, we need to find a more advanced and efficient solution.

What Solution Does the Market Demand for?

In this context, Wireless Dynamic Load Balancing (WDLB) emerges as an innovative technology, perfectly suited to solve the aforementioned problems. The introduction of WDLB aims to revolutionize the way electric vehicles are charged, achieving intelligent dynamic power balance through wireless technology, providing users with a more convenient, efficient, and cost-effective charging experience.

How Does the WDLB System Operate?

Components and Installation: The WDLB system consists of an electric vehicle charger, DLB box (installed in the distribution box), signal transmitter (installed in the distribution box), and signal receiver and the main control device (embedded in the EV charger).

Operation: The DLB box serves as the core, responsible for collecting, analyzing, and transmitting data, measuring the power consumption of other electric appliances in real time. The signal transmitter connected to the DLB box via a network cable synchronously receives the measured power information and transmits this data to the signal receiver. The main control device inside the EV charger connects to the signal receiver through a network cable, receiving data and intelligently adjusting the charger’s power. This whole process enables dynamic load balancing between appliances and the charger.

What are the Advantages of WDLB?

Load Balancing: The WDLB system ensures effective power balance between other appliances and the EV charger at any given moment through real-time data analysis, avoiding electricity consumption issues during peak hours.

Grid Stability: The WDLB system not only aids in balancing the power of different appliances but also alleviates the pressure of grid overload, enhancing grid stability.

Cost Savings: Compared to wired DLB, cost savings are the primary advantage of wireless DLB. Traditional DLB requires ground digging to bury transmission lines. WDLB, on the other hand, eliminates this cumbersome step by directly transmitting data through wireless communication, saving significant manpower, time, and costs. This not only provides users with a more convenient installation experience but also facilitates widespread application.


Where is WDLB Mainly Applied?

The flexibility and convenience of WDLB technology make it effective in various scenarios. The system is suitable not only for home users but also for commercial settings, providing feasibility for future scalability. In a home setting, the WDLB system helps users charge their electric vehicles safely and efficiently, avoiding grid overload. As for commercial settings, the WDLB system can be applied to public charging stations, parking lots, and places like malls, cafes, and restaurants, improving the utilization of chargers and the stability of the grid.

How to install Beny WDLB system and how does it function?

Installation: Before implementing the Wireless Dynamic Load Balancing system, thorough installation preparation is essential. This includes determining the optimal installation position that is well-ventilated and ensures a clear frequency signal without interference. Make sure to avoid metal enclosures and prevent proximity to high-power appliances. The recommended installation height aligns with the EV charger height, and care is taken to maintain an optimal receiving distance to avoid signal reception issues. After everything is prepared, note that only professionals or authorized personnel should handle installation and maintenance to avoid any mistakes and electric shock dangers.
