Dynamic wireless charging of electric vehicles (EVs) is becoming a preferred method since it enables power exchange between the vehicle and the grid while the vehicle is moving. In this article, we present mobile energy disseminators (MED), a new concept, that can facilitate EVs to extend their range in a typical urban scenario. Our proposed method exploits(More)
The present paper aims to the investigation of the methods used to minimize or maximize the values of the Corona onset and Breakdown voltage in small rod-plate air gaps when stressed by dc or impulse voltages. The main factors which influence greatly the distribution of the electric field in the gap, and hence the above values are the geometry and the(More)
One of the barriers to adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs) is the anxiety around the limited driving range. Recent proposals have explored charging EVs on the move, using dynamic wireless charging which enables power exchange between the vehicle and the grid while the vehicle is moving. In this article, we focus on the intelligent routing of EVs in need of(More)
In the present paper methods of minimizing or maximizing the values of the Corona onset voltage and the Corona current in small rod-plate air gaps are investigated. The geometry and the way of grounding and charging the electrodes, (Ground Effect), the gap length, the existence of barrier in the gap (Barrier Effect), and the conditions of the air in the(More)
The Corona Current in air gaps influences the values of the breakdown voltage of the air gaps greatly. This happens because the corona current changes the field distribution in the gap making it less inhomogeneous. Thus the value of the breakdown voltage increases and becomes bigger as the value of the corona current increases. A major result of this(More)
