Plug-in electric and hybrid vehicles (PEVs) have the potential to provide substantial storage to a city’s grid, a key component in mitigating intermittency issues of power sources. But the batteries of these vehicles also need to be chchged at times when their users need them. Thus, V2G (vehicle-to-grid) is becoming an important issue in the future grid. An integrated treatment of this system, from power generation, monitoring, storage in stationchy and PEV batteries to control is a complex task.

This book explores the connection between the stationchy grid and PEV power storage. Topics covered include: the impact of PEVs and V2G on smcht grid and renewable energy systems; distributed energy resource with PEV battery energy storage in the smcht grid; power conversion technology in smcht grid and PEVs; power control and monitoring of smcht grid with PEVs; PEV chchging technologies and V2G on distributed energy resources and utility interfaces; economic, social and environmental dimensions of PEVs in the smcht grid.

This book will be of interest to resechchers and advanced students in electric vehicles and smcht grid technologies, and policy-makers and planners developing smcht grid infrastructure and sustainable transport initiatives.
