Dynamic Power Management for Home
Optimal charge speed without overloading
Would you like to charge your electric car at high power and still be sure that your electricity connection won't overload when charging?
With Dynamic Power Management, the Shell Recharge charging station optimizes the distribution of energy from your home connection for efficient charging. The charge point regularly communicates with the Dynamic Power Management module, monitoring electricity consumption in your home and adjusting the charging speed of your vehicle as needed.
If sufficient capacity is available, the charging speed increases automatically, providing optimal charging without the need for an expensive grid connection upgrade.
This feature is ideal for high-power charging compatible vehicles such as the Tesla Model 3, Model Y, Porsche Taycan, Audi e-tron, Jaguar I-PACE, VinFast and Volkswagen ID.4.
- The charge point knows the capacity of your grid connection.
- The charge point constantly checks how much energy is being used.
- The Dynamic Power Management - Module continuously relays the total consumption.
- The charge point calculates and supplies all available energy.
The Dynamic Power Management - Module: a type of meter that communicates the home electricity consumption to the charge point. This allows the charge point to only use the energy that's available. This module has been developed by Shell Recharge and is an essential part of the Dynamic Power Management feature.
Costs involved in upgrading your grid connection
In most cases, Dynamic Power Management spares you the expense of upgrading your grid connection. Upgrading your grid connection will cost you a one-off installation payment as well as additional monthly payments. The costs depends on your network operator and your home situation.
