SAE J1772 is the recommended practive for the general physical, electrical, functions, and performance requirements to facilitate conductive charging of EV/PHEV vehicles in North America. This standard defines a common EV/PHEV and supply equipment vehicle conductive charging method including operational requirements and the functional dimensional requirements for the vehicle inlet and mating connector. Gery Kissel is the author of this document and his presentation will review what J1772 is, its importance, and continuing work.
