After reading some docs about Electric Vehicles (EV), I learned that there are 4 differents charging modes.
For example, let's consider a slow recharge, where EV is connected to a single-phase domestic wall socket: its battery will absorb 16 A, so (considering a voltage of 230 V) about 3.7 kW.
3.7 kW is, often (depending on the type of contract with the grid operator), a value near the maximum power rating of an household.
So, I guess that 16 A is only the maximum current value allowed by that precise "charging mode", and that it's also possible to recharge the EV with a smaller value of current (so a smaller power). Otherwise, during EV charging, no other electric equipment (such as TVs, applicances, ...) could be supplied, without generating an electric overload.
Am I guessing right?
If it's possible to recharge an EV with a smaller power than 3.7 kW (in my case), how, and by which device, is this power value determined? Will this value be the maximum power value which doesn't cause an electric overload?
Is there anyone who could clear this?
