OCPP

Typescript package implementing the JSON version of the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP). Currently OCPP 1.6 is supported.

Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP, http://www.openchargealliance.org/) is a communication protocol between multiple charging stations ("charge points") and a single management software ("central system").

Installation

npm i ocpp-ts

Usage

Central System

import {
  OcppServer, OcppClientConnection, BootNotificationRequest, BootNotificationResponse,
} from 'ocpp-ts';

const centralSystemSimple = new OcppServer();
centralSystemSimple.listen(9220);
centralSystemSimple.on('connection', (client: OcppClientConnection) => {
  console.log(`Client ${client.getCpId()} connected`);
  client.on('close', (code: number, reason: Buffer) => {
    console.log(`Client ${client.getCpId()} closed connection`, code, reason.toString());
  });

  client.on('BootNotification', (request: BootNotificationRequest, cb: (response: BootNotificationResponse) => void) => {
    const response: BootNotificationResponse = {
      status: 'Accepted',
      currentTime: new Date().toISOString(),
      interval: 60,
    };
    cb(response);
  });
});

Charging Point

import {
  BootNotificationRequest,
  BootNotificationResponse,
  OcppClient, OcppError,
} from 'ocpp-ts';

const chargingPointSimple = new OcppClient('CP1111');
chargingPointSimple.on('error', (err: Error) => {
  console.log(err.message);
});
chargingPointSimple.on('close', () => {
  console.log('Connection closed');
});

chargingPointSimple.on('connect', async () => {
  const boot: BootNotificationRequest = {
    chargePointVendor: 'eParking',
    chargePointModel: 'NECU-T2',
  };

  try {
    const bootResp: BootNotificationResponse = await chargingPointSimple.callRequest('BootNotification', boot);
    if (bootResp.status === 'Accepted') {
      console.log('Bootnotification accepted');
    }
  } catch (e) {
    if (e instanceof Error || e instanceof OcppError) {
      console.error(e.message);
    }
  }
});
chargingPointSimple.connect('ws://localhost:9220/');

Security

Add required certificates for Central System, note from OCPP protocol:

As some Charge Point implementations are using embedded systems with limited computing resources, we impose an additional restriction on the TLS configuration on the server side:

  • The TLS certificate SHALL be an RSA certificate with a size no greater than 2048 bytes
centralSystemSimple.on('authorization', (cbId: string, req: IncomingMessage, cb: (err?: Error) => void) => {
  console.log('authorization', cbId, req.headers.authorization);
  // validate authorization header
  // cb(new Error('Unathorized')); // Deny
  cb(); // Accept
});
centralSystemSimple.listen(9220, {
  cert: fs.readFileSync('cert.pem'),
  key: fs.readFileSync('key.pem'),
});

If the central system requires authorization, an authorization header can be placed as the second parameter.

chargingPointSimple.connect('wss://eparking.fi/ocpp/', {
  Authorization: getBasicAuth(),
});
