  • Publication number: 20170320397
    Abstract: A method for recognizing an over-temperature in a region of a charging socket of a motor vehicle without a temperature sensor. A temperature value is detected by means of a temperature sensor at an installation location of the temperature sensor that is different from the region. At least one configuration value of a current operating configuration in which the charging socket is operated is determined, and then a temperature reading for the region without the temperature sensor is generated by means of a characteristic map, which is designed for the purpose of including the temperature value and the at least one configuration value as input variables and of assigning the temperature reading to these input variables.
