Electric Vehicles Could ‘Provide Substantial Storage to a City’s Grid’
Virginia’s Stylus Publishing is promoting the Institution of Engineering and Technology’s Vehicle-to-Grid: Linking Electric Vehicles to the Smart Grid.
The new book, edited by Jenwei Lu and Jahangir Hossain, “provides an integrated treatment of smart grid using electric vehicles by exploring the connection between the stationary grid and PEV power storage.”
“Plug-in electric and hybrid vehicles (PEVs) have the potential to provide substantial storage to a city’s grid, a key component in mitigating intermittency issues of power sources,” states a release.
The 312-page volume covers
- the impact of PEVs and V2G on smart grid and renewable energy systems;
- distributed energy resource with PEV battery energy storage in the smart grid;
- power conversion technology in smart grid and PEVs;
- power control and monitoring of smart grid with PEVs;
- PEV charging technologies and V2G on distributed energy resources
- utility interfaces; and
- economic, social and environmental dimensions of PEVs in the smart grid.
IET’s Vehicle-to-Grid is priced at $130.00.
