SAE Worldwide has revealed the primary Technical Data Report (TIR) that specifies, in a single doc, each the electrical vehicle- and ground-system necessities for heavy-duty (HD) wi-fi charging of electrical automobiles (EV).
SAE TIR J2954/2 Wi-fi Energy Switch & Alignment for Heavy Responsibility Functions helps pave the best way for charging HD automobiles with out the necessity for plugging in—extensively thought-about to be a key enabler for accelerating the adoption of EVs and autonomous automobiles. The brand new guideline builds off the success of the primary light-duty SAE J2954 commonplace revealed in 2020. The SAE TIR J2954/2 exponentially will increase the ability stage of Wi-fi Energy Switch (WPT) for heavy obligation automobiles to 500 kW.
Charging a heavy-duty EV needs to be so simple as parking in the appropriate spot—the wi-fi charging SAE TIR J2954/2 Guideline makes it attainable to try this mechanically.

Energy is transferred by making a magnetic resonance area between the bottom transmitting meeting and a automobile meeting fitted on the underbody of a HD automobile. The power crosses an air hole (the bottom clearance between the pads) and is then transformed from AC into DC on the automobile to cost the automobile batteries.
The know-how is a protected and environment friendly technique for transferring energy from the AC grid provide to the HD EV. Discipline trials utilizing a 10-in. (250-mm) floor clearance has proven that WPT techniques function at grid-to-battery efficiencies of 92+%. WPT with extra alignment parts in SAE J2954/2 additionally provides the potential to satisfy the charging necessities for autonomous EVs to cost themselves with out human interplay.
The SAE TIR J2954/2 is a game-changer guideline enabling ultra-fast wi-fi charging to 500kW, for each vehicles and buses. It additionally makes it attainable for wi-fi alternative charging at stops for buses to in a single day charging and not using a wire and HD truck sleeper cabs. To prime it off SAE J2954/2 allows dynamic wi-fi energy switch, making it attainable to cost whereas driving at roadway speeds. This allows a leap ahead for wi-fi charging for EV heavy obligation automobiles by establishing a standard automobile and parking location and frequency.
SAE TIR J2954/2 Heavy-Responsibility Wi-fi Energy Switch has the potential to vary the mindset of the fleet operators enabling each transit buses and truck fleets to go electrical. It makes the entire prospect of charging simpler to deal with in comparison with conductive charging.

Moreover, SAE J2954 revealed an up to date model 2 of its SAE J2954 light-duty commonplace for wi-fi energy switch for electrical automobiles. This replace improves the usual by creating necessities to help UL 2750 in making a certification program for SAE J2954 light-duty techniques.

The SAE J2954 Customary has the potential to drastically speed up validation and due to this fact commercialization of wi-fi charging techniques for mild obligation automobiles.
—Jesse Schneider, Chair SAE WPT Taskforce
SAE and UL signed an MoU to collectively develop and share WPT requirements to assist speed up certification of wi-fi energy switch for electrical automobiles.
