Grid Electrified Vehicles: Performance, Design and Environmental Impacts $150.00
Editors: Carla Alexandra Monteiro da Silva (Institute of Mechanical Engineering-IDMEC, Insituto Superior Técnico, Portugal)
Book Description:
Grid electrified vehicles or plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) are gaining attention worldwide as a potential low carbon technology. Because it is still an immature technology on the market, there is limited knowledge about the control strategy design; the environmental life cycle rating; the business model behind ‘electricity charging’; charging behaviour's interaction with local electricity grid voltage drop, under dumb or smart grid scenarios; and the monitoring apparatus needed to acquire real data on daily usage of these technologies. This book aims to provide insight into these PEV issues.
The book is composed of 11 chapters. Chapter One addresses the differences between pure or battery electric (EV) and hybrid (PHEV) vehicles and discusses seamless transition from the current social and energy infrastructure.
Chapter Two provides an extensive overview of selected aspects of automotive control system design with a focus on simulation-based development methods. It offers a methodology for simulation-based control network design for implementation of the Data Time Flow simulator, a simulation environment for design and performance analysis for vehicle electronic control systems.
Chapter Three compares three EV business models: battery leasing, vehicle leasing and charging lease.
Chapter Four explores how consumer charging behaviour can affect gasoline consumption over the life of a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. The total fuel savings are calculated as a function of dwell time and infrastructure capability across a range of plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs).
Chapter Five discusses observable variations in PEV charging behaviours, whether PEV charging is more frequent and variable than has commonly been assumed, and the implications for estimates of social, economic, and environmental impacts.
Chapter Six offers an analysis of the replacement of a large share of the traditional ICE vehicles with EVs in a low voltage network by analysing 10% to 60% (six to 36 vehicles) replacement in a residential area. Dumb versus smart charging influence on voltage drop and wind power and energy storage are discussed.
Chapter Seven describes a model that generates individual EV movement patterns, tracking them throughout the simulation period, and output indicators such as individual and global energy needs, greenhouse gas emissions impacts and impacts on electricity grids. The model is illustrated through a case study application.
Chapter Eight reviews vehicle labelling and environmental rating schemes.
The three last chapters focus on real monitoring of PEV in light-duty and soft-mode applications. Toyota Prius plug-in and Renault Fluence ZE are analysed. Bike-sharing systems worldwide, the number of electrical bikes and an electric bicycle, QWIC Trend2 by Prio Energy, are reviewed. (Imprint: Nova)
