Project Title: Design and Analysis of New on Board Bi-Directional Conductive Charging for Electric Vehicle by V2V Energy Transfer Method
Battery-powered Electric Vehicles (EVs) are considered as an effective solution to curb carbon emissions and fight global warming. One of the main drawbacks in driving an EV is range anxiety, which can be defined as the fear of vehicle having insufficient range to reach its destination due to lack of charging. Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) charging is being explored as a solution to mitigate the range anxiety issue. The work focuses on proposing a topology of dc–dc converter for EVs with hybrid energy sources with a wide-voltage-gain range. In order to achieve the objective, mathematical modelling of the proposed topology for the DC on board conductive charging for electric vehicle by V2V method will be carried out. And a comparative analysis of the existing topologies with the proposed model with respect to same specifications on the following factors such as conversion efficiency, voltage stress across the switches, voltage gain, input ripple current and power density will be analysed. The best existing controlling methods such as Fuzzy Logic, Sliding Mode control, Model Prediction control and PI control will be worked out for the proposed topology. Integration of the converter with the control scheme for testing and validation would be the main focus of the work to enhance last mile connectivity.
