CHARGING & INFRASTRUCTURE

Overview

Wave Industries has been involved in the planning and development of mass transit electric vehicle systems for many years. This expertise includes the delivery and integration of large electric bus fleets and light rail solutions into a number of European cities. Wave Industries is unique in that we offer a complete and bespoke service suited to each and every customer's requirements, from initial planning right through to long term financing arrangements.

Irrespective of whether the bus is fitted with a fast charge system or super-fast charging system, the daily range will be up to 250 miles. The main difference between the two charging concepts is the amount of charging current available. This is very specific to individual applications, in particular available infrastructure.

'Fast' usually means plug in: The limitation typically is a CSS2 socket restricted to 250A DC current. This could be increased to by using water cooled cables or providing 2 (cables) ie parallel plug - in connections.

'Super-fast' - would typically be 400A and more. Usually it would be by means of a charging pantograph.

FAST CHARGING

Overview

'Fast Charging' is what you might call the ‘traditional technique’. You plug in overnight or for several hours, and with a large battery you have up to 250 miles range for the bus in a single day. This is often adequate but limitations include the vehicle range, demand of depot space, charging infrastructure and grid demand.

SUPER-FAST CHARGING

The alternative too 'fast charging' is ‘Super-fast’, which is a bus equipped with Supercapacitors and rapid chargers positioned at strategic points along a route, or at route end points or terminals. Wave Industries buses are equipped with ‘Hybrid’ Supercapacitors which give around 20 miles of range between super-fast charge points. Charging time is typically 8 minutes. The Opportunity Charging solution can give very cost effective running on certain and particular routes, as well as potential 24/7 service. It is also a very good solution where there are particular infrastructure challenges or restrictive access to the electricity grid.
