Being the next big step in automobile industry, electric vehicles continue to have limited autonomy which associated with the long charging times, limited charging stations and undeveloped smart grid infrastructure demands for a hard planning of the daily use of the vehicle. This paper presents an information system that will help the driver in the daily(More)
This paper presents a mobile information system denominated as vehicle-to-anything application (V2Anything App) and explains its conceptual aspects. This application is aimed at giving relevant information to full electric vehicle (FEV) drivers by supporting the integration of several sources of data in a mobile application, thus contributing to the(More)
– Until not long ago, most fuzzy logic based control applications were limited to the management of user interfaces, sensors and actuators, corresponding to a slow software operation. These techniques are specially appropriated whenever the system model is non-linear and/or difficult to obtain. Is it viable to use fuzzy logic in faster " real time "(More)
In this work is proposed the design of a system to create and handle Electric Vehicles (EV) charging procedures, based on intelligent process. Due to the electrical power distribution network limitation and absence of smart meter devices, Electric Vehicles charging should be performed in a balanced way, taking into account past experience, weather(More)
This paper describes an intelligent Vehicle to Grid (iV2G) Charging Platform for plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles that can be used at user's home, and which includes a mobile control system. The car drivers can control remotely the charging or discharging process through a mobile communication device. This mobile communication device can also gather(More)
—The large dependency of the imported fossil fuels and the soaring oil prices, makes essential the look for alternatives to the traditional people transportation system. The natural bet is the electric mobility, namely Electric Vehicles (EV), and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV). This way, in this paper is analyzed the potential impacts of the(More)
— The main objective of this tutorial is to present the basic concepts on the instantaneous p-q Theory and them show its applicability for controlling switching converters connected in a micro-grid. These converters can be used for connecting renewable energy sources (solar, wind, and others) to the micro-grids or for harmonic, reactive power or unbalance(More)
