Electric vehicles (EV), are being hailed as part of the solution to reducing urban air pollution and noise, and staving off climate change. Their success hinges on the availability and reliability of fast and efficient charging facilities, both stationary and in-motion. These in turn depend on appropriate integration with the grid, load and outage management, and on the mitigation of loads using renewable energy and storage. Charging management to preserve the battery will also play a key role.
This book covers the latest in charging technology; stationary as well as wireless and in-motion. Grid integration, simulations, fast charging, and battery management are also addressed.
The objective of this book is to provide readers with an in-depth knowledge about EV charging infrastructure, and grid integration issues and solutions. The book serves as a reference for researchers in academia and industry, covering almost every aspect of the charging and grid integration of EVs.
