Electric Vehicles & Charging Stations Introduction

With sustainable urbanization, economical personal mobility and security of energy in emphasis, there is a shift from the monopoly of Internal Combustion automobiles to alternative fuel vehicles. Alternative fuels are vehicle fuels that are not composed of petroleum. Alcohols, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Electricity, Hydrogen, Liquefied natural gas (LNG), Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) (also called […]

Issues Related to the Charging of Electric Vehicles

Issue-1 Using the slowest charging level, PHEVs and PEVs double the load of a typical home (2 kW). Suppose that a distribution transformer serves 7-8 homes, so any significant load increase as represented by PHEVs and PEVs will translate into a significant relative load increase for transformers that are not designed to accommodate such increase. […]

Types of Electric Vehicles

Electric Vehicles mainly are of four types a). Battery Electric Vehicle (BEVs) or Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs) These vehicles run entirely on an electric drive train and battery, without a conventional internal combustion engine. These vehicles take an external source of electricity to recharge their batteries by plugging into a power grid. BEVs may employ regenerative […]
