    The paper discusses an electric vehicle (EV) charging control method enabling flexible high-power charging in domestic real estates. In the method, the charging current(s) of an EV is adjusted in accordance of the free capacity between maximum current limit and the non-EV load current(s). This kind of harging is simulated using long-lasting electricity consumption measurements and is also demonstrated with a real commercial charging station and an EV. The
    simulations and the real world demonstration show that the method works well and is very flexible. However, if it is widely used, its impacts on distribution grids are not favorable from distribution system operator (DSO) point-of-view. Power based distribution tariffs, which are nowadays under active consideration by Finnish DSOs, could cope with this problem.
