CS (Charging Station)

A Charging Station (CS), also commonly referred to as a charge point or electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), denotes a device or infrastructure designed to supply electrical power to recharge electric vehicles (EVs). Within the EV charging framework, charging stations are the physical points where EVs connect to the electrical grid or renewable energy sources to charge their batteries. These stations can vary in capacity and speed, ranging from slower Level 1 home chargers to high-speed Level 3 DC fast chargers. They may be located in various settings, including residential areas, public parking lots, commercial establishments, and dedicated charging hubs. Equipped with safety and communication features, charging stations often interact with vehicles and management systems to ensure efficient and safe power transfer. As the cornerstone of the electric mobility infrastructure, charging stations play a pivotal role in facilitating the transition to cleaner and more sustainable transportation.
