Question
Dear rule committee, EV8.3.5 stipulates that "When charging, the AMS must be live and must be able to turn off the charger in the event that a fault is detected." Is it enough to stop the charge (send a stop charge command to the charger) or it has to electrically disconnect the charger from its AC supply.
Answer
Turning off the charger means electrically turning off the charger. Thus you will need a contactor disconnecting the charger from mains power supply.
