  • Operation of Smart Grid

    This chapter introduces some basic concepts and technologies of the smart grid, as well as applications of smart grid operation. Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) technology uses remote two-way wireless communication to retrieve customer energy usage information at frequent intervals from customers' electric smart meters and/or natural gas meters via a radio frequency (RF) fixed network. A smart grid is typically reliable, secure, efficient, economic, environment friendly, and safe to the extreme extent as feasible. Demand response (DR) encompasses many customer-level actions that can help to smooth the electric power load shape and reduce energy consumption. A virtual power plant (VPP) can be understood as a coalition composed of multiple energy producers (such as renewable sources) and, possibly, energy storage providers (such as electric vehicles (EVs) or Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G)) that come together to sell electricity as an aggregate. The chapter discusses a new phase angle measurement algorithm.

  • DQ Coils for Large Tolerance EV Chargers

    In addition to the asymmetric coil structure in the previous chapter, another idea of increasing tolerance is to use DQ power supply coil sets for wireless stationary electric vehicle (EV) chargers. Two coil sets having a 90 phase difference can increase tolerances for longitudinal, lateral, as well as diagonal displacements. Each power supply coil set consists of two same magnetic poles to generate uniform magnetic flux density over the power supply coil. A prototype inductive power transfer system (IPTS) using the proposed DQ power supply coil sets for the wireless stationary EV chargers was fabricated for the experimental verifications with an operating frequency of 85 kHz to satisfy Standard J2954 of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). From simulation and experiment results, it is found that the lateral, longitudinal, and diagonal displacements of the proposed coil sets increase by about 35% and 19%, respectively, at an airgap of 150 mm, compared with conventional rectangular loop???type coils.This chapter is based on the paper by S,Y. Jeong et al., ???DQ???quadrature coil sets with large tolerance for wireless stationary EV chargers,??? in IEEE 2015 WoW, June 2015.

  • Introduction

    With ever-increasing concern on energy diversification, energy efficiency, and environmental protection, electric vehicles (EVs), including pure electric vehicle (PEV), hybrid electric vehicle (HEV), and fuel-cell electric vehicle (FEV) are becoming attractive for road transportation. This chapter discusses the classification of EVs. In general, EVs are classified as the PEV, HEV, and FEV types on the basis of their energy sources and the propulsion devices. Currently, the conventional HEV has been commercially available and widely accepted as an energy-efficient and environment-friendly vehicle, while the PEV is becoming commercially available and tagged with a zero-emission label. The chapter presents key technologies for various types of EVs, with emphasis on their emerging research activities. Among them, the motor drive technology is most actively developed in recent years where there are many innovations and advancements in the design, analysis, and control of motor drives.

  • A REVIEW ON END¿¿?OF¿¿?LIFE BATTERY MANAGEMENT: CHALLENGES, MODELING, AND SOLUTION METHODS

    End¿¿?of¿¿?life (EOL) battery packs may have significant residual value for secondary use and are too expensive to simply recycle. Quality variation adds complexity to EOL decision¿¿?making among multiple EOL options including disposal, recycling, remanufacturing, and reuse in secondary applications. The aim of the modeling and analysis for battery¿¿?remanufacturing systems is to determine the battery's optimal EOL decisions that maximize cost savings or minimize life cycle cost. This chapter considers the quality variation of EOL returns, resulting in different EOL decisions as well as different routes of remanufacturing processes and inventory level. It discusses some of the basics of battery remanufacturing, including the economic and ecological benefits, principles, operational strategy, and processes of battery remanufacturing. Several emerging issues of battery remanufacturing have been discussed with a main focus on modeling and analysis of electric vehicles (EVs) battery¿¿?remanufacturing system as well as decision¿¿?making related to the remanufacturing processes, inventory control, and reassembly strategy.

  • Coupled Coil Model

    The core of an inductive power transfer (IPT) system can be said to be coupled inductors. In this chapter, the coupled coils are modeled as equivalent circuits. We will start from the general distributed inductor case and then derive a lumped element circuit model. Furthermore, we will derive the transformer model and M???model, which correspond to an explicit transformer and mutual coupled coil, respectively. These two models are related to each other and shown to be equivalent. Finally, the T???model, which has a T???shaped structure of three inductors, is introduced and also related to the previous two models; these three models are generally unified in this book as the model of IPT.

  • 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.

  • Wireless Nuclear Instrumentation

    In this chapter, the dipole coil inductive power transfer system (IPTS) is applied to a special purpose instrumentation. A highly reliable power and communication system that guarantees the protection of essential instruments in a nuclear power plant (NPP) under a severe accident is explained. Both power and communication lines are established with not only conventional wired channels but also the proposed wireless channels for an emergency reserve. An IPTS is selected due to its robust power transfer characteristics under high temperature, high pressure, and highly humid environments with a number of scattered debris after a severe accident. A thermal insulation box and a glass???fiber reinforced plastic box are proposed to protect the essential instruments, including vulnerable electronic circuits, from extremely high temperatures of up to 627 ??C and pressure of up to 5 bar. The proposed wireless power and communication system is experimentally verified by an IPTS prototype having a dipole coil structure and prototype Zigbee modules over a 7 m distance, where both the thermal insulation box and the glass???fiber reinforced plastic box are fabricated and tested using a high???temperature chamber. Moreover, an experiment on the effects of a high radiation environment on various electronic devices is conducted based on the radiation test having a maximum accumulated dose of 27 Mrad.This chapter is based on the paper by B.H. Choi, G.C. Jang, S.M. Shin, S.I. Lee, H.K. Kang, and C.T. Rim, ???Development of highly reliable power and communication system for essential instruments under severe accidents in NPP,???

  • Applications to Lightning Surge Protection Studies

    This chapter reviews representative applications of the finite-difference time domain method (FDTD) method to lightning electromagnetic pulse and surge simulations. The applications reviewed include lightning electromagnetic fields at close and far distances, lightning surges on overhead power transmission line (TL) conductors and towers, lightning surges on overhead distribution and telecommunication lines, the lightning electromagnetic environment in power substations, and lightning surges in wind-turbine- generator towers. It also includes lightning surges in photovoltaic arrays, the lightning electromagnetic environment in electric vehicles, the lightning electromagnetic environment in airborne vehicles, lightning surges and electromagnetic environment in buildings, and surges on grounding electrodes. When an overhead ground wire of a TL is struck by lightning, corona discharge will occur on this wire. Corona discharge around the ground wire reduces its characteristic impedance and increases the coupling between the ground wire and phase conductors.
