I am a new user of ABRP so I'm still learning the idiosyncrasies of the web app. (And I am finding a few) I imagine this has been asked before, but I can't find it. When I plan a route, ABRP calculates how long to charge at each charging stop. But I find that it seems to minimize the charging time. This means it says to leave a charger with less charge than I would prefer or expect. For example, if I plan a route from Phoenix, Arizona, to San Diego California, ABRP says to depart from the chargers with 49% to 65% SoC. I know I can set individual stops to specify the TILL SoC. but how do I tell ABRP to start calculate with charge to say 85%? I would rather start a leg with a higher SoC. Like always filling the tank on an ICE car. I find that I can eliminate some charge stops if I plan that way. (Of course this means the ones left take longer.)
ABRP appears to try to to minimize charging time. Once I have determined a route, it would really be nice to be able to set the departure charge at individual stops. There may be conditions along the way which would make me want to charge more or less at certain stops, or for comparison. e.g., ABRP suggests charging to 65% at a certain stop. I'd like to change this to 85%, and see what time penalties would incur, and then see the effect on the rest of the trip. I haven't the foggiest idea how you are doing the calculations, or if this might be possible, but this would be a great feature in my book. I've been playing with this for weeks, awaiting the delivery of my new Model 3 this week. Can't wait to try it out.
