The city of Amsterdam set the ambitious target of having local zero emission transport in 2025. To achieve this
challenging goal, the network of public charging stations needs to be developed. This expansion will increase
the load on the local electrical network. To avoid overload and instability in the electrical distribution network,
smart charging needs to be implemented.
During a period of 8 months, from January to Augustus 2018, the Flexpower 1 pilot is one of the 6 pilots of the
SEEV4-City project, supported by the North Sea Region Interreg programme.
From the 2100 public charging stations present at this time across the city of Amsterdam, 102 were selected for
a split-run testing. 50 of the charging stations were used as reference with a constant available charging current
of 25 A. The other 52 were deployed with a time dependent current limitation. During the peak hours, in the
morning, from 7:00 to 8:00 and in the evening from 17:00 to 20:00, the current available for the charging stations
is limited to prevent overload. Outside these hours, the current is set to 35 A, a higher value than the reference
