Title PHEV-EV Charger Technology Assessment with an Emphasis on V2G Operation.
Publication Date Mar 2012
Media Count 113p
Personal Author A. Bedir B. Ozpineci L. M. Tolbert M. C. Kisacikoglu
Abstract More battery powered electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) will be introduced to the market in 2011 and beyond. Since these vehicles have large batteries that need to be charged from an external power source or directly from the grid, their batteries, charging circuits, charging stations/infrastructures, and grid interconnection issues are garnering more attention. This report summarizes information regarding the batteries used in PHEVs, different types of chargers, charging standards and circuits, and compares different topologies. Furthermore, it includes a list of vehicles that are going to be in the market soon with information on their charging and energy storage equipment. A summary of different standards governing charging circuits and charging stations concludes the report.
