One of the main drawbacks in adopting EV vehicles is the last mile connectivity issue. There is always a chance that the user/rider may get stranded without EV charge and no EV charging stations nearby. With the aim of solving such an exigency, this paper proposes a novel V2V charging technique which allows charge transfer between two EVs off the grid, and discusses its modes of operation. Non-isolated bidirectional DC-DC converters with average current control technique are simulated in a MATLAB/Simulink environment to verify and validate the efficiency and charging time for the proposed charging technique.
