IEC 61851 is a standard of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for the communication between charging stations and electric vehicles for charging the batteries
. The IEC 61851 standard consists of various sub-standards in which the EMC requirements and the requirements for DC charging stations are dealt with. In detail, these are:
: General requirements. IEC61851-21-1: EMC requirements for on-board electric vehicle chargers for conductive connection
to an AC/DC supply
: Requirements for electric vehicles for conductive connection to an AC/DC supply - EMC requirements for on-board electric vehicle charging systemsIEC 61851-23
: DC charging station for electric vehiclesIEC 61851-24: Digital communication between a DC EV charging station and an electric vehicle for controlling DC charging.
