Electric Vehicle Technologies in The Smart Grid Era: A Comprehensive Review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Electric Vehicles (EVs) present an effective means to decrease greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and to improve the grid power quality. EVs offer numerous advantages over conventional internal combustion engines, mostly in lower emission, decreased dependency on oil, higher energy ef-ficiency, less engine noise, produce zero emissions, and improved air quality by releasing toxic chemicals into the atmosphere. However, there is a lack of literature that comprehensively reviews the factors that can facilitate the assimilation of electric vehicle technology. Therefore, this survey addresses three main types of electric vehicles, which are hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), plug-in electric vehicles (PHEVs), and battery electric vehicles (EVs). Also, compares the advanced tech-niques of these motors in terms of topology, and control strategies. Despite their numerous benefits, there are significant barriers to the rapid adoption of EVs include limitations of battery technology, lack of recharging infrastructure, and high production cost. The advancement of various technologies and improved EV infrastructure is required for the adoption of EVs. This paper surveys the literature on the concepts of the different motor types used in the EV and ad-dresses the latest taxonomy of EV. The paper proceeds to review the details about the EV tech-nology, EV charging infrastructure with advantages and limitations, and challenges in EV are charging infrastructure. This paper discusses the merits and challenges of developing the charging system for EVs and discusses various standards of EV.
