Integrating Plug-In Electric Vehicles

Preparing the distribution grid to embrace PEVs BY ARINDAM MAITRA & JASON TAYLOR, Electric Power Research Institute As customer adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) continues to grow so does the potential for adverse consequences to distribution system operations and assets. These...

Plugging into Electric Vehicles

Most future planning discussions about electric vehicles begin with a prediction for significant impact by 2020. While these studies are important for future planning, utilities must consider the direct impact that EVs are currently having on society. Despite recent news about lower gas prices at...

Vehicle-to-Grid Integration

How utilities can move forward using electric vehicles BY BEAUDRY KOCK, Recargo Until recently, North American electric utility reps might have understood electric vehicles in one dimension only: potential adverse impacts on the power grid. However, as knowledge and understanding have grown, such...

Electric Vehicles Overview

Electric vehicles (EVs) are still considered a new source of transportation/technology, and may even seem somewhat futuristic. In reality the electric vehicle has been around for more than a century. In the 1830’s Robert Anderson invented the first electric carriage, powered by non-rechargeable primary cells. By the early 20th century electric transportation was a commonplace with electric automobiles having the majority of the market, until powerful internal combustion engines fueled by gas...

How Electric Vehicles Could Sink the Texas Grid

Simultaneous charging of just 60,000 next-generation electric vehicles could one day threaten the Texas grid, an analysis has shown. Based on a 100-kilowatt EV battery with a 5-minute charge time, which could potentially be the standard for EVs in three or four years, demand from 60,000 cars...
