Review of Battery Charger Topologies, Charging Power Levels, and Infrastructure for Plug-In Electric and Hybrid Vehicles
This paper reviews the current status and implementation of battery chargers, charging power levels, and infrastructure for plug-in electric vehicles and hybrids. Charger systems are categorized intoExpand
Averaged modeling of PWM converters operating in discontinuous conduction mode
Various aspects of averaged modeling of hard-switching pulse-width modulated (PWM) converters operating in the discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) are studied. A more streamlined modeling procedureExpand
Elements of Power Electronics
Building on the tradition of its classic first edition, the long-awaited second edition of Elements of Power Electronics provides comprehensive coverage of the subject at a level suitable forExpand
Switched capacitor system for automatic series battery equalization
A clocked switched-capacitor circuit can exchange charge between adjacent batteries in a series string. This exchange drives all batteries to identical voltages, without regard to component values,Expand
Review of the Impact of Vehicle-to-Grid Technologies on Distribution Systems and Utility Interfaces
Plug-in vehicles can behave either as loads or as a distributed energy and power resource in a concept known as vehicle-to-grid (V2G) connection. This paper reviews the current status andExpand
Differential Power Processing for Increased Energy Production and Reliability of Photovoltaic Systems
Conventional energy conversion architectures in photovoltaic (PV) systems are often forced to tradeoff conversion efficiency and power production. This paper introduces an energy conversion approachExpand
Minimum Energy and Capacitance Requirements for Single-Phase Inverters and Rectifiers Using a Ripple Port
Converters with a dc port and a single-phase ac port must store energy to buffer the inherent double-frequency power flow at the ac port. The minimum energy storage required to isolate the powerExpand
Electrical battery model for use in dynamic electric vehicle simulations
Simulation of electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles over driving schedules within a full dynamic hybrid and electric vehicle simulator requires batteryExpand
Dynamic maximum power point tracker for photovoltaic applications
A dynamic process for reaching the maximum power point of a variable power source such as a solar cell is introduced. The process tracks maximum power nearly cycle-by-cycle during transients.Expand
A Schwarz–Christoffel-Based Analytical Method for Electric Machine Field Analysis
With the recent increase in the availability and widespread use of inverters, exotic rare earth permanent-magnet materials, and low-cost, precision manufacturing, new design tools are needed to aidExpand
