JET Charge CORE

Energy Management System. Making the impossible, possible

Charging optimisation at the CORE

Core – an Australian innovation engineered by JET Charge, is a single ‘on premise’ intelligent, holistic and autonomous EV energy management system (EMS) capable of managing up to 1000 smart EV chargers across common electrical & data infrastructure. Our world leading solution provides dynamic power management, single point administration, real time monitoring, electrical asset safety and 3rd party integration to support your EV charging installation.

Chances are if your building is an apartment or commercial site with multiple EV charging needs, the JET Charge CORE (EMS) is a vital addition to your site electrical infrastructure offering resilience, capacity and cost savings when scaling up more charging stations to support growing EV adoption.

How you benefit

Protect electrical assets
Core monitors your entire EV charging network electrical supply 24/7. It dynamically responds ensuring the charging consumption of electricity is not oversubscribed, avoiding costly power trip outs.
Freedom to choose
JET Charge CORE uniquely can connect with compatible multi-vendor OCPP hardware and software. Put simply, different brands of smart EV chargers can be managed by Core simultaneously along with support for integration with a variety of BMS, embedded networks and other billing platforms.
Charge more vehicles
Accommodate more than 5 times as many chargers with JET Charge CORE! Our digital algorithms and analytics optimise multiple connected smart chargers to ensure equitable and sustainable charging, whilst staying safely within the available power supply.

How does it work?

CORE is the smart heart of your building-wide EV charging system and uses digital analytics to optimise an increasing number of connected EV charging stations. Just like a ‘digital traffic cop’ CORE automatically diversifies or juggles charging sessions based on set conditions creating more equitable charging for all users and in turn protecting the building’s electrical infrastructure, ensuring EV charging sessions don’t over subscribe the facility power supply.

Energy efficiency of the charging activity is also increased where dynamic load management, time shifting, and renewables can contribute to reduced energy costs and a more sustainable outcome for your building.

JET Charge CORE monitors the building’s power demand in real time and adjusts the charging rate of each charging station dynamically. We’ve illustrated a typical charging scenario in an apartment car park to show how load is managed at peak & off-peak periods on a weekday.

12pm —  As most residents are out for work and building has a low power demand, EV chargers can be set to maximum charging for the low number of cars plugged in.

4pm — As some residents return home and plug in their car, EV chargers will reduce their output to match the building’s increased demand.

7pm — This is the peak period for the building with a majority of residents at home with their car plugged in. The JET Charge LMS will moderate the load off each charger to stay within the network’s limits.

1am — This is the off-peak period for the building when residents are sleeping and demand is at its minimum. EV chargers are operating at their maximum for a full charge overnight.

What do you want to provide to EV owners?

JET Charge Core’s fully flexible and agnostic central EMS permits versatile scaling up of multiple EV chargers on a single site, whilst managing all chargers automatically. Whether you are starting small or planning for a bigger EV future, JET Charge CORE provides an important foundational back bone of your charging system. Here some examples of how JET Charge CORE can be a crucial partner in an apartment setting:

I want to offer EV charging for the first few residents

Retrofitting existing infrastructure
Buildings can elect to provide EV charging for the first few residents without any capital expenditure. These charging stations will be installed to the closest public light and power distribution board depending on how much power capacity and physical space the board has. The number of charging stations that can be installed on the board will be limited by the maximum demand of the network (generally between 2-6 stations).

Cost on OC: Low to none
EV penetration: Low

I want to expand my EV charging capability without a cabling upgrade

Load balancing across existing distribution board
Your existing public light and power distribution board will be retrofitted with the JET Charge EMS. This will allow more charging stations to be installed without upgraded cabling or circuit protection, typically up to 30 charging stations. There is a capital cost for the EMS, but this is relatively minor compared to what it delivers.

Cost on OC: Low
EV penetration: Medium

I want to futureproof my building(for existing buildings)

Electrical infrastructure upgrade
When there isn’t enough capacity to meet the incoming demand, buildings will need to consider upgrading their electrical infrastructure. This allows residents to retrofit chargers to their private parking space using the new system at any time. Detailed site assessments will be required to determine the building’s supply and capacity. Charging will be supplied site-wide, with load sharing conducted separately across each floor.

Cost on OC: Medium to High
EV penetration: High

I want to futureproof my building (for new developments)

Electrical infrastructure provisioning
We recommend new developments install EV distribution boards (DBEVs) at each floor of parking. By installing these boards at accessible locations, developers can minimise costs for the addition of more charging stations with time. Residents can then retrofit the submains later when they’ve purchased an EV. By involving electrical engineers and electricians from the outset, the most effective solution can be found for your building.

Cost on OC: Medium to High
EV penetration: High

I want to offer EV charging for all residents

Load balancing across entire building
This final stage of development allows load sharing for each floor across entire buildings. A central LMS is installed in the main switchboard to ensure the building does not exceed its maximum demand, with supplementary systems to monitor individual floors’ usage. Detailed engineering is required to design the required load balancing solution for the specific needs of the building. Costs include engineering, hardware, and software.

Cost on OC: High
EV penetration: High
