Hybrid fast-charging stations with battery storage and local renewable generation can facilitate low-carbon electric vehicle (EV) charging, while reducing the stress on the distribution grid. This paper proposes energy management strategies for a novel multibattery design that directly connects its strings to other DC components through a busbar matrix without the need for interfacing power converters. Hence, the energy management system has two degrees of control: (i) allocating strings to…

Double-String Battery System with Reconfigurable Cell Topology Operated as a Fast Charging Station for Electric Vehicles
A modelling approach is presented that captures the reconfigurable design including the controlling algorithm used for cell engagement that enables the BESS to actively control the EV charging process by changing its cell configuration in a real-time fashion, making a DC-DC converter redundant.
Demonstrations of DC Microgrid and Virtual Power Plant Technologies on the Danish Island of Bornholm
The scope and research activities to be carried out on the Danish Island of Bornholm under the 4-year (2019-2023) H2020 Insulae project are presented and the potential of a renewable-driven virtual power plant embracing different energy domains is investigated.
Fast Charging Systems for Passenger Electric Vehicles
Analysis of current charging patterns at fast charging stations and the role of fast charging among different charging options finds that with increasing battery capacity the need for fast charging decreases, but for those vehicles with large charging capacities there are indications that fast charging is perceived as more convenient as these are used more often.
Grid-Integration of Battery-Enabled DC Fast Charging Station for Electric Vehicles
A system architecture and its control structure that mitigates impact of the Electric Vehicles’ DC fast-charging station on its host weak AC-grid is presented and time domain simulation results in PLECS software are presented to verify that the station's internal dynamics are sufficiently decoupled from the host AC- grid dynamics.
Optimal Sizing of PV and Energy Storage in an Electric Vehicle Extreme Fast Charging Station
Investment of PV and energy storage could help reduce the annualized cost of the extreme fast charging station significantly and the impacts of various parameters on the optimal solution are investigated by sensitivity analysis.
Reconfigurable Stationary Battery with Adaptive Cell Switching for Electric Vehicle Fast-Charging
The simulation results confirm that the BESS can maintain a balanced level of its cell states while following the voltage request of the EV with satisfactory precision, but the approach of adaptive cell switching shows to be not sufficient for fulfilling the current request.
