As the execution unit of transmitting energy deals, EP-400 is crucial in Eloncity Platform.
Firstly, EP-400 and BESS (Battery Energy Store System) are connected to the same router via RJ45 Internet Access or WiFi. The IP address of EP-400 will be broadcasted to a specific access, until BESS receives the broadcast and confirm that there is an Endpoint existed in the local network.
Subsequently, BESS sends out a binding request to the Endpoint and gets a feedback of binding successful. Once bound, data of EP-400 will be saved in BESS, therefore no further binding is required for communication.
In the data transmission between BESS and EP-400, data of energy sending and receiving, Scheduler dispatching command execution will be reported simultaneously to BESS by EP-400.
Throughout the process, communications and transactions are highly secured through AES and RSA algorithm.
