Taking power from an electric range

1

1

Turn off the circuit breaker that supplies power to your electric range. Most circuit breakers are located in a basement, garage or utility room. Flip the breaker to the off position.

2

Remove the plate on the rear of your electric range. The plate is a square panel covering the back of the range. Remove the screws that attach the plate. You will see a small power box housing 4 screw terminals, with the green screw being the ground terminal.

3

Remove the round, metal knock-out inside of the terminal box by using a hammer and a screwdriver to push out the piece.

4

Open the space inside the back panel. Loosen the 2 screws on either side of the strain relief connector to widen the space. Feed the loose end of the power cord through the strain relief entrance.

5

Begin wire connection. Find the copper strip on the end of the 4-pronged cord. Connect the ground wire to the green ground screw, and connect the...

SAE TIR J2954 establishes an industry-wide specification guideline that defines acceptable criteria for interoperability, electromagnetic compatibility, minimum performance, safety and testing for wireless charging of light duty electric and plug-in electric vehicles. The current version addresses unidirectional charging, from grid to vehicle, but bidirectional energy transfer may be evaluated for a future standard. The specification defines various charging levels that are based on the levels defined for SAE J1772 conductive AC charge levels 1, 2 and 3, with some variations. A standard for wireless power transfer (WPT) based on these charge levels will enable selection of a charging rate based on vehicle requirements, thus allowing for better vehicle packaging, and ease of customer use. The specification supports home (private) charging and public wireless charging.

It is anticipated, that, in the near term, vehicles that are capable to be charged wirelessly under this...

All-electric vehicles (EVs) run on electricity only. They are propelled by one or more electric motors powered by rechargeable battery packs. EVs have several advantages over conventional vehicles:

Energy efficient. EVs convert about 59%–62% of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels. Conventional gasoline vehicles only convert about 17%–21% of the energy stored in gasoline to power at the wheels.* Environmentally friendly. EVs emit no tailpipe pollutants, although the power plant producing the electricity may emit them. Electricity from nuclear-, hydro-, solar-, or wind-powered plants causes no air pollutants. Performance benefits. Electric motors provide quiet, smooth operation and stronger acceleration and require less maintenance than internal combustion engines (ICEs). Reduced energy dependence. Electricity is a domestic energy source.

EVs do, however, face significant battery-related challenges:

Driving range. Range is typically...
