The Langer Graben multi-storey car park in Schwäbisch Hall is currently undergoing fundamental renovation. In the course of the renovation, Stadtwerke Schwäbisch Hall plan to initially equip one of the four parking levels with 120 charging points for e-vehicles (in the future, all four levels) and to expand the existing transformer station accordingly.
An innovative cascaded connection system with intelligent distribution boxes (for 5 charging points each) is planned for the cabling of the charging stations. This means that the cabling in the multi-storey car park can be realised much more cost-effectively and with considerably less copper than in previous installations. In addition to the controllers in the distribution boxes, a further controllers is planned for each parking level as well as a central controller in the main distribution area. This cascaded intelligence enables highly efficient charging load management, which efficiently avoids local overloads in the distribution and also ensures grid-serving operation through the connection to the Venios system (grid status forecast) of Stadtwerke Schwäbisch Hall. A possible future bidirectional use of the vehicle batteries will also be taken into account and prepared.
As a scientific partner, HFT Stuttgart will support the joint project by developing AI-based methods for predicting and evaluating charging cycles for intelligent charging load management. Monitoring will be used to analyse and optimise the efficiency and effectiveness of the methods and thus prepare them for further application. In addition, HFT will develop an innovative and intuitive mobile application for charging point booking and activation with a connection to the public transport system.
