Abstract

Electric vehicles and Hybrid electric vehicles are fetching the attraction of the consumers because of the increasing fuel cost. The growing number of EVs/ HEVs has given a new area to think of since these vehicles can be a part of a renewable energy system. The main idea is to deliver the stored energy of an electric/ hybrid vehicle to the power grid. EVs which are out in the market till date are not capable of transferring the stored energy to the grid because of the power electronics design they have. To implement the new idea of transferring energy back to grid, changes in the installed design is required. A comprehensive study of the various models of the converter system has been discussed in this paper. In this research a design of the integrated bi-directional converter has been proposed. A controller has been introduced to make the converter works more efficiently. Model simulation results with graphical interpretation have been given to validate the design.
