  • Sustainable Transportation with Electric Vehicles

    While electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming increasingly popular. Their low oil dependency and low emissions will significantly benefit the environment. However, as demand increases for EVs, their prevalence will also lead to two crucial consequences. First, electric vehicles introduce a heavy load impact onto the power grid by shifting energy demand from gasoline to electricity. The surging load is likely to compromise the grid¿¿¿s reliability and jeopardize its power supply quality. Second, charging stations become indispensable infrastructure to support widescale deployment of EVs. EVs will therefore find themselves competing for both power supply and charging stations. Such competition can degrade quality of service and thus compromise the original intent of advocating electric vehicles. Sustainable Transportation with Electric Vehicles investigates smart electric vehicle charging. It focuses jointly on the quality of service for EV users and the stability and reliability of the powe grid. It lays out a solution framework that addresses many of the key problems arising from both the lower and upper levels. The proposed solutions are developed mainly using techniques from the optimization, game theory, algorithmic, and scheduling fields.

  • Introduction to Electric Vehicles (EVs)

    In this chapter, a general overview of electric vehicles (EVs) is briefly provided because EV is one of the major applications of WPT in this book. Currently, IPT is a majority method for EV charging though CPT is being researched as a potential candidate. Neither detail nor professional introduction to EVs will be tried in this chapter because this book is not intended for EV but for WPT. Those who are aware of EVs may skip this chapter.

  • Electric and Plug¿¿¿In Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    Shortage of petroleum is considered as one of the most critical worldwide issues today. At the same time, as of today, car owners worldwide, in general, spend more money at the gas station than they have done ever before. The most practical solution to the transportation industry oil¿¿¿consumption crisis problems lies in commercially viable electric and plug¿¿¿in hybrid electric vehicles (EVs and PHEVs). EVs and PHEVs present a significant opportunity to reduce greenhouse gases and dependence on oil. Major automotive companies have already developed exciting new EVs. This chapter presents the structure and basic design aspects of EVs and PHEVs. Future trends in EV manufacturing are also presented. Integration of EVs with green, renewable energy sources is presented, along with an introduction to the design of such systems. Various charging scenarios for EV batteries is presented, when charging at home, at work, or in between routes. Future advanced battery charging infrastructures, such as from combined PV and grid sources are also presented.


    Since mid¿¿¿1970s, the federal government has provided funding for research into battery and vehicle technologies that could provide an alternative to the gasoline¿¿¿powered engine. Federal tax credits for purchasing an electric vehicle, grants and loans to vehicle and parts manufacturers, and greenhouse gas (GHG) regulations have contributed to the evolution of federal support for electric vehicles. Despite major advancements in electric vehicles in the past 40 years, one factor remains elusive: a safe, inexpensive, high energy density battery. The federal role in seeking such a battery technology supplements similar research by domestic (and foreign) automakers. This chapter reviews federal and state efforts to the advance the U.S. electric vehicle and vehicle battery industries. It also reviews government efforts to spur interest in a range of electric vehicles, including hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), plug¿¿¿in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), battery electric vehicles (BEVs), extended range electric vehicles (EREVs), fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).


    Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) fall into one of the following four categories: hybrid electric vehicle (HEV), plug¿¿¿in electric vehicle (PHEV), extended range electric vehicle (EREV), and pure BEV. This chapter reviews different formats and structures of Li¿¿¿ion battery cells, modules, and packs in BEVs. It focuses on the characteristics relevant to the joining, assembly, and packaging rather than the battery chemistries, functions, and performances. A number of BEV manufactures use pouch cells for lightweighting, better volumetric energy density, and high spatial efficiency. The chapter reviews a few selected joining technologies that are pertinent to Li¿¿¿on battery cell and pack manufacturing, that is, ultrasonic welding, resistance welding, laser welding, wire bonding, and mechanical joining. It discusses the advantages and limitations as well as the applications in major BEVs. The chapter also discusses the battery manufacturing processes and particularly the joining processes. The chapter focuses on the manufacturing processes most relevant to BEVs in today's marketplace.


    The cost and driving performance of electric vehicles (EVs) highly depend on the capability and efficiency of the energy storage system (ESS), which can preserve a large amount of energy, along with the capability of responding instantaneously to the load demand. This chapter reviews the state of the art of battery, supercapacitor, and battery¿¿¿supercapacitor hybrid energy storage system (HESS) for advanced EV applications. It discusses the optimal control methods for the HESS and presents the existing battery and supercapacitor technology for automotive applications, respectively. The chapter introduces the control strategy and algorithm for the HESS and summarizes the conclusions and future research directions. The representative characteristic of a passive HESS is the direct combination of the battery and the supercapacitor in parallel. Optimal use of the supercapacitor bank and the battery pack requires an efficient power flow controller between the two energy storage subsystems.


    Energy storage and power management are two critical factors to the performance of various electric vehicles (EV), including pure, hybrid, and plug¿¿¿in hybrid EVs. This chapter focuses on the state¿¿¿of¿¿¿the¿¿¿art technologies of hybrid energy storage systems (HESS) for EVs, mainly in power management strategy. It analyzes low¿¿¿level hybrid topologies of hybrid system. The chapter discusses high¿¿¿level supervisory control between battery and supercapacitor. It describes the advantages and disadvantages of four commonly used hybrid structures for EVs. Effective management of power flow via optimal use of supercapacitor bank and battery pack and via an efficient power flow controller are the key to achieving high performance. The chapter investigates some power management strategies from both time domain control and frequency domain control to improve system efficiency, battery life cycle, and robustness of the hybrid system. A power management strategy based on wavelet transform algorithm has proved effective in dealing with the transient phenomena in load power demand.

  • History of RPEVs

    An extensive review on road¿¿¿powered electric vehicles (RPEVs) is provided in this chapter. RPEVs are attractive candidates for future transportation, as introduced in the previous chapter, because they do not rely on large and heavy batteries but directly and efficiently get power while moving along a road. The inductive power transfer systems (IPTSs) that have been widely used for the wireless powering of RPEVs are reviewed in this chapter. The development history of the IPTS is tracked from the origin of the RPEV in the 1890s to the recent RPEV. Throughout its hundred¿¿¿year history, the size, weight, efficiency, airgap, lateral tolerance, EMF, and cost of the IPTS have been substantially improved, and now RPEVs are becoming more widely commercialized. Important milestones of the developments of the IPTS and RPEVs are summarized in this chapter, focusing on recent developments of on¿¿¿line electric vehicles (OLEV) that were firstly commercialized in 2013. Some pictures in this chapter are reused in other chapters to give detailed explanations.This chapter is rewritten based on the literature of the author, C.T. Chun, by S.Y. Choi, B.W. Gu, S.Y. Jeong, and C.T. Rim, ¿¿¿Advances in wireless power transfer systems for road powered electric vehicles,¿¿¿ _Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics of Power Electronics_, vol. 3, no. 1, pp. 18¿¿¿36, March 2015, and by S.Y. Choi, G. Buja, C. Mi, and C.T. Rim, ¿¿¿Modern trends in wireless power transfer system for road powered electric vehicles,¿¿¿ _IEEE Trans. on Industrial Electronics_, accepted for publication.

  • Narrow¿¿¿Width Dual¿¿¿Phase Power Rail (I¿¿¿type)

    As an improved solution to the I¿¿¿type power supply rail, as explained in the previous chapter, a dq I¿¿¿type power supply rail is introduced in this chapter. The single¿¿¿phase I¿¿¿type power supply rail for on¿¿¿line electric vehicles (OLEVs) has a very narrow power supply rail with 10 cm width and exposes pedestrians to a very low electromagnetic field due to its alternatively arranged magnetic poles along the driving direction of electric vehicles; however, it has a major drawback: sinusoidal variation of the induced pick¿¿¿up voltage depending on pick¿¿¿up positions on the power supply rail along the driving direction. To overcome this disadvantage, a dq¿¿¿power supply rail fed by two high¿¿¿frequency AC currents of the d¿¿¿phase and q¿¿¿phase is introduced in this chapter. The d¿¿¿phase and q¿¿¿phase magnetic poles are alternatively arranged in a line; hence, the induced voltage of a pick¿¿¿up becomes spatially uniform. The power invariant characteristic of the proposed scheme has been verified by analysis, simulations, and experiments. A practical winding method is suggested as well.This chapter is based on the paper by C. Park, S. Lee, S.¿¿¿Y. Jeong, G.H. Cho, and C.T. Rim, ¿¿¿Uniform power I¿¿¿type inductive power transfer system with DQ¿¿¿power supply rails for on¿¿¿line electric vehicles,¿¿¿ _IEEE Trans. on Power Electronics_, vol. 30, no. 11, pp. 6446¿¿¿6455, November 2015. Readers should gain much insight from the dq¿¿¿power supply rail.
