Low-Voltage Transformer Loss-of-Life Assessments for a High Penetration of Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs)

In the coming years, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) will strongly penetrate the French car fleet. Their impact on each element of the electric distribution grid needs to be estimated. In this paper, the impact of PHEVs on the life duration of the medium-voltage/low-voltage (LV) transformer using a thermal model to estimate the hot-spot temperature… (More)
