(54)SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SELECTIVELY CHARGING AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE


(57) The disclosure is directed to a smart charging cable that enables dynamically and remotely controlled charging of a battery such as may be found in an electric vehicle (EV). The EV charging cable is not specific to any particular manufacturer or brand of electric vehicle thereby facilitating unrestricted application and access to vehicular charging. The EV charging cable includes a processor arranged to execute instructions stored on a memory along with a communication module for wireless communication between the cable and a remote source. A car emulator may be used to simulate the presence of a vehicle to allow switched high-power sources like standard installed EV chargers as well as a power meter for measuring the flow electricity passing through the cable. The aforementioned may be housed in a control box arranged between two portions of the cable to receive and deliver power from a source to a battery.
