Hey Cdf, and congrats on the delivery of your car. I get around 35km/hr 240v 32/32A from my HPWC.
Have a great weekend with your new machine!
thanks Trav... Why then am I only charging at half your rate? I can't change the Amp's up in the car at all? I am meant to have dual chargers installed in the car as well... Any ideas?
Dual chargers don't add anything with your 40A single phase HPWC. 40A x 240v = 9.6kW which is less than the capacity of a single charger, you need to wait for the 3 phase HPWC or install a 3rd party solution to charge more that 11kW at home. If the car isn't letting you adjust the amps above 16A, then I would guess that the dip switches in your HPWC have been set to limit current to 16A.
16A 3 phase is the max from the single charger. With the dual charger you can go higher, up to 32A per phase (22kW). Sounds like your electrician has determined that 20A is the limit of what he can install based on other stuff you have connected at home. Check with the electrician if you could put in higher rated breakers on that circuit to make use of your dual chargers.Thanks everybody.
I think it has been set at 20A as everybody mentioned and 16A draw for the car. I believe it was also set this way so that when 3-phase HPWC comes along, I'll be able to get more 16A 3 phase, or 50 km/hr.
If you upgrade your connection to 3 phase you will have 3x 63A, so you can then put your charger on one of the phases giving you the full 40A draw.Or even to make use of a single charger, which goes up to 40 A. I am getting 32 A on a single phase. I can't go to 40 A as my total supply for the whole house is only 63 A.
In WA a "standard supply" is either 63A single phase or 32A 3 phase, so wouldn't really help with the single phase wall connector.If you upgrade your connection to 3 phase you will have 3x 63A, so you can then put your charger on one of the phases giving you the full 40A draw.
I now see from the manual that the UMC will only draw 8 amps from a 10 amp socket. That explains the 2 kW not 2.4.

32A is more than enough to recharge overnight anyway.
On the charging screen in the car there is a slider to set the amperage limit. I have seen the pictures with it at 32 amps. What are the other options. Hopefully something different to the dip switch settings which have a gap between 40 and 20 amps.
Exactly the same as mine. If you check your myTesla, you will find a UMC manual, I had not seen that before.
