GFCI must trip between 15ma and 20ma.

Using Ohms Law select to correct 5 watt resistors to draw 15ma and 20ma. Alternatively, a 5 watt resistor selected for 12ma plus a 5k 5 watt pot can be used to determine the exact trip point.

US - 120v line to ground 8k = 15ma and 6k = 20ma

Europe 230v line to ground 15.3k = 15ma and 11.5k = 20ma

While the EVSE is in State C "Charging" connect a wire with the 15ma resistor in parallel through the GFCI coil from one hot to ground. The Charging Station should not trip.

While the EVSE is in State C "Charging" connect a wire with the 20ma resistor in parallel through the GFCI coil from one hot to ground. The Charging Station should trip this time.
