Company Description:

ElaadNL is operating as a non-profit knowledge center, founded by the Dutch grid operators (DSOs) to investigate the impact of electric mobility on our energy grids. ElaadNL is the knowledge and innovation center in the field of Smart Charging and is doing research on newer technologies regarding Smart Charging.

Role and main tasks within the project:

ElaadNL will provide knowledge to the project partners to give a clear view of the Power Quality behavior on the electricity grid, influenced by DC fast chargers and (wireless) induction chargers. The following aspects are related to the Power Quality (PQ) behavior: different types of (harmonic) distortions, maximum allowed levels, and the recommended maximum of other phenomena without norms; examples are supraharmonic currents and inrush currents. This information will be used as a maximum allowed distortion baseline for the PQ improvements used in WP2.


This project has received funding from the Electronic Components and Systems for European Leadership Joint Undertaking under grant agreement No 876868. This Joint Undertaking receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Slovakia.”
The project has an overall budget of about 19.576 M€. The project will receive an ECSEL JU funding of some 5.785 M€ completed with national funding from – Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Italy and Slovakia.
