Connecting an electric vehicle (EV) to a charging station, also known as the electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), initiates highly complex, encrypted communication. This charging communication is defined in specifications like DIN 70121, ISO 15118-2, and ISO 15118-20. When it comes to developing the related controllers, understanding this communication is key. The Wireshark Foundation offers a special analysis tool which helps record and analyze the charging communication. With dsV2Gshark, dSPACE now provides a free plug-in offering valuable additional features.

What is dsV2Gshark – and which features does it offer?

The dSPACE plug-in dsV2Gshark for Wireshark® allows you to analyze and decode packets between EVs and EVSEs, also known as vehicle-to-grid (V2G) messages. For this, it uses a special decoder from our valued partner chargebyte GmbH, a solution provider in the field of charging communication. The open-source plug-in lets you visualize and analyze the communication in detail, offering features such as:

  • Decoding of all V2G-based messages
  • Validation of V2G messages with regard to the XSD specification
  • Color highlighting and filtering of the different communication layers
  • Optimized readability of Plug & Charge (PnC) certificates
  • Live transport layer security (TLS) decryption
  • Analysis of incomplete recordings

You have questions about the plug-in? Just contact us.

This screenshot shows the dSPACE plug-in dsV2Gshark for Wireshark® in action: It visualizes the encrypted PnC-based communication in a way that is easy to understand.

Further information and the plug-in itself are available on GitHub.
