The test site is conceived to be a living lab so the plant (electrical switchboard, electric supply, . .) and the safety issues are already addressed with a modular approach in order to allow any further experimental with minimum “tailoring” costs.
Location: close to A32 Motorway Torino – Bardonecchia, c/o Safe Driving Track.
- Traffic information
- Management of the electric vehicles
- Vehicle detection
- Evaluation of on-road charging solutions for future electric vehicles
- Simulation of urban and extra-urban environment
- Electric power supply: > 50 kW
The FABRIC test bed will be designed and constructed in accordance with safety guidelines and standards to provide at least 260 m of electric car and LDV dynamic charging infrastructure. The site will be able to support for at least one vehicle and possibly three powered simultaneously (~20 kW each). There will also be smart grid interface including commercial and industrial (C&I) electricity meter capable of 1 second readings. The Italian Test Site will also implement the SAET SPA system that is constituted by coils supplied by loadresonant power frequency converters operating at a frequency range of 10-150 kHz and a pick –up system on board of EV. The system will be installed on additional 50m of the Italian test track (additional in respect to the Politecnico of Torino implementation).
