Are you a programmer or engineer working in the electric vehicle industry? Do you or your company plan to become a leader in the e-mobility space? The course has arrived that will take your understanding and application of ISO 15118 and RISE V2G to new levels.

This advanced course will show you how to program the sophisticated, machine-to-machine communication that is necessary for successful charging sessions. Such conversations will ensure the needs of the EV, driver, and energy grid are met in every use-case scenario.

Become an expert in:

  • The Document Family of ISO 15118: From Use-Cases to Conformance Tests
  • Using state machines to control information exchange, with a focus on one of the most sophisticated request-response message pairs: the Charge Parameter Discovery Request & Response
  • Adapt and integrate RISE V2G into your product line, including a guide to DIN SPEC 70121
  • How to use RISE V2G on your charging controller and how to retrieve and deliver necessary information to-and-from various control units
  • The Combined Charging System (CCS) and low-level communication mechanisms like Signal Level Attenuation Characterization (SLAC) using powerline communication
  • How I utilize RISE V2G with the HomePlug GreenPHY-compliant modem of INSYS to use powerline and SLAC communication with a charging station

This is the most in-depth and complete course on the market. After completing the 22 video tutorial and bonus quizzes, you’ll be able to design and market products with the highest possible interoperability in the industry – leading to higher demand and quicker consumer adoption.

Together, we’ll revolutionize the global transportation industry and create a future fleet of smart cars that reliably and securely talk to any charging station on the market!

Course prerequisites:

Please be sure to have some understanding of Java and object-orientated programming. This will help you understand the concept of classes versus objects and instances, abstraction and inheritance, private and public variables, methods and functions, and various data types.

Please complete the RISE V2G Basics Course: Revolutionize Electric Vehicle Charging – With RISE V2G Powered by Plug & Charge before beginning Advanced Course I. This will enable you to grasp and work with the concepts on a much deeper level.

What Others Say About RISE V2G

ICT Solutions eMobility, innogy SE

RISE V2G has accelerated the implementation of ISO 15118 Plug & Charge in our backend. With open sources and compatible licensing, it can be a future-proof building block of our software. Conversely, we can share our experience with the V2G community and help design a reference implementation.

We are an R&D company specializing on electric mobility and high efficiency Silicon Carbide charging systems. Thanks to RISE V2G, we were able to develop our own solution for DIN SPEC 70121 and ISO 15118 communication in just a couple of months. The knowledge offered by V2G Clarity, like the ISO 15118 Manual and the RISE V2G software, really helped to better understand the standard.

Marc Mültin is inspiring my interest in ISO/IEC 15118. He also helped me have the knowledge needed to more deeply discuss technical issues and potential business models with our global customers. For beginners, I truly believe his courses could help you get started in this field. For experienced managers, engineers, or entrepreneurs, Marc's practical courses encourage innovation by adding a new perspective.

RISE V2G is a practical technology that helps to develop charging devices that meet the international ISO 15118 standard. In addition, the explanations given via email and in his ISO 15118 Manual tremendously minimize the developers’ confusion about the difficult parts of the international standard itself. His products and services are an excellent and well-appreciated resource.

As a 1st tier supplier of several automotive OEMs (e.g. VW, Daimler, Porsche, BMW, Audi) we develop various electronic control units, including OnBoard-Chargers (AC / DC). Due to the high effort to set up this EVSE simulation, however, I decided to deploy RISE V2G to a RaspberryPi, which is an affordable system-on-chip Linux system. A QCA7000 chip is connected via SPI to the RaspberryPi. RISE V2G is running in parallel with Oracle Java for the ISO 15118 communication. This significantly reduces our costs and scales way better to set up various test sites across our department.

Over the last decade, I have become a recognized e-mobility expert after developing the widely-used RISE V2G software and co-authoring the ISO 15118 and related international standards. I now work with companies and research institutions across the globe to integrate RISE V2G and ISO 15118’s promising Plug & Charge feature into their products and innovations.

While I was working on my Ph.D. in computer science at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), I became a member of the prestigious German DIN standardization committee. Since then, my mission has been to help bring convenient, secure, and user-friendly electric vehicle charging to a global audience.

I genuinely believe ISO 15118 and Plug & Charge will transform electric vehicle charging. With this course, my “ISO 15118 Manual” eBook, and my consulting within the industry, I hope to contribute to making this vision a reality. Join me in driving the electric vehicle market forward to revolutionize the future of worldwide transportation.
