Dynamic Load Management

Webasto Live dynamic load management not only saves you money, it also helps you avoid peak loads and thus power outages. This is because it manages the phase-accurate control of the power load within a system. The total available power is adapted to the building's power consumption and the charging capacity is intelligently distributed to the connected electric cars. 

Key facts at a glance:

  • Efficient use of available energy and distribution between the charging stations
  • Central control of up to 250 charging points
  • Phase-accurate control: automatic phase detection at the start of the charging process
  • Avoiding peak energy loads prevents high costs 
  • Interfaces for connecting external meters
  • Numerous safety features such as overload protection and delayed switching on the wallbox following a power failure
  • Easy set up and control by using the Webasto Live configuration interface
  • Flexibility when adding more charging points as each charging station can be configured as a master or slave

Energy System Integration

Electricity and mobility will be connected in the future, because the installation of charging stations also means a new major consumer in the energy consumption of your building. An energy management system (EMS) can control all energy flows depending on the generation, consumption or battery storage and thus regulate the total load centrally. The Webasto Live charging station can be flexibly integrated into both commercial and private EMS thanks to its Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) and Modbus TCP communication interfaces. For example, excess power from the PV system can be used for the charging station.

Key facts at a glance:

  • Own power consumption monitoring and optimization
  • Intelligent charging with advanced power distribution
  • High cost savings by avoiding energy peak loads
  • PV-optimized charging
  • Demand-oriented control of multiple consumers
  • Interfaces for connecting external meters and software
  • Easy set up and control by using the Webasto Live configuration interface
  • Management of diverse EMS parameter for controlling self-generated energy
  • Compatible energy management systems: Beegy, Kiwigrid, TQ, Smart1, ChargePilot (TMH)
