G Kenyon Technology Ltd, as a content partner with the IET Academy, has developed an on-line course for designers and installers of Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Installations.
Learn on-line, at your own pace
This course will cover: the design of electrical installations for, and specification of, electric vehicle charging equipment installations; the requirements detailed in Section 722 of BS 7671:2018; and recommendations of the IET Code of Practice for Electric Vehicle Charging Installations, 3rd Edition. It provides an understanding of the key requirements for protection against electric shock, including selection and use of earthing systems, and introduces vehicle-as-storage, wireless power transfer (WPT) and smart infrastructure installations.
Many electrical installations now incorporate new technologies, including embedded generation and home or building automation systems. As use of these technologies becomes more widespread, we need to be ever mindful that control of power to a circuit no longer relies on simple human switching operations. Electrical energy storage technologies that are capable of operating in island mode, continue to provide power when the grid is isolated.
Some incidents that have occurred recently when implementing energy storage systems outside the UK prompted Dr Andrew Crossland and myself to write an article for IET’s Wiring Matters. The article highlights the risks, and discusses safe isolation.
Further guidance on electrical energy storage systems can be found in the IET Code of Practice for Electrical Energy Storage Systems.

Draft for Public Comment (DPC) for IET Code of Practice for Electric Vehicle Charging Installations, 3rd Edition
The 3rd Edition of the IET Code of practice for electric vehicle charging installations is due to be published later in 2018.
A draft for public comment is now available from the IET web-site: https://www.theiet.org/resources/standards/dpc-ev-3rd-ed.cfm
The consultation period will end on 28 February 2018, and all comments must be submitted to the IET by this date, in accordance with the instructions in the link above.

Interest in utilising d.c. power systems within buildings is on the increase, for various applications relating to:
- Distributed / local energy generation and storage
- Electronic devices
- Data centre installations
- LED lighting
Our Principal, Graham Kenyon, has written an article for the IET’s Wiring Matters, which discusses the challenges that are presented by what could be seen as a change of direction for wiring systems in buildings.
