Hi guys. after my water tank question, I have another electrical question, and this time about the wiring for an electrical vehicle. It was specified on the plans for a new home, for a 32A circuit to be installed in the garage, to be used in the future for electrical vehicle charging, to future proof it. At the moment it just has a normal power socket on it, but eventually it will be hooked up to a EV charging station that plugs directly into an electric car.
Now the electrician has named some of the circuits in the distribution board, we noticed that the EV socket is using a C16 circuit breaker as per the photo below, which appears to be rated at 16 A. S I understand 32 A allows a car to be charged in double the time. Would the fact that he has used a 16A circuit breaker indicate that it is likely that he hasn't wired it up with 32A capable cable? If so what would be the process of getting it correct...rewiring it?
The other concern is that there doesn't appear to be a dedicated RCD on this circuit. According to the note in the distribution board, the RCD 7 to the left is for all the power circuits on the right of the RCD. SO the circuit breakers to the left RCD7 don't appear to be on any RCD at all. However I was reading that an EV circuit must now be on a dedicated RCD in order to be compliant. Is this correct, does this EV need it's own dedicated RCD and must that have been installed?
