Carrying Out the COTEVOS Interoperability Test Plan: Technical Report on 1st V2G Plugtest is Online

On 30 November – 4 December, 2015, EV stakeholders, under the technical support of COTEVOS, gathered in Ispra (IT) at the V2G (Vehicle-to-Grid) Plugtests™ event to assess the interoperability of systems, apparatus and protocols for the integration of EVs within the electricity grid.









Organised by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute’s Centre for Testing and Interoperability (ETSI CTI), the event was hosted by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) and was dedicated to carrying out the testing campaign based on the interoperability test plan developed by COTEVOS partners. The test plan contained around 50 interoperability tests for ISO/IEC 61851, ISO/IEC 15118, and OCPP. Participating EV stakeholders had a unique opportunity to test end-to-end functionality with real Devices-under-Test (DuT) and partially emulated environment.


The goal of interoperability tests was to check that different devices implementing the same protocol specification are able to communicate and follow the expected behaviour. The test sessions were carried out with devices from different vendors, and tests were performed depending on the test configuration. Here you can find the complete technical report on the Plugtest.

The outcomes of this Plugtest event will be also partly published in the upcoming COTEVOS white book “Business Opportunities and Interoperability Assessment for EV Integration”.
