If you pressed the help button it tells you what it is.

It learns your charging behaviours based on time of day you charge and location to decide how quickly to charge the phone (slower charges are better for prolonging overall battery life).

If it thinks you are charging something at a time you are in a rush it will allow the use of "fast charging" which is not great for battery health but does provide a much quicker charge.

The idea is to get a good balance between charging quickly and prolonging overall battery life.

is there a way to controll it manually , for example fast charging at noon but normal charging at night ?

No it's designed just to learn your behaviour.

Settings>Battery>"Smart Charging", you will see this screen. Battery Saver works for me but Smart Charging seems to disable itself the second I leave the screen. For example, if I turn it on, switch to messaging, then switch back to the battery screen, smart charging is again disabled. Does anyone know why this is?
