Electric and Hybrid Vehicles: Power Sources, Models, Sustainability, Infrastructure and the Market reviews the performance, cost, safety, and sustainability of battery systems for hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs), including nickel-metal hydride batteries and Li-ion batteries. Throughout this book, especially in the first chapters, alternative vehicles with different power trains are compared in terms of lifetime cost, fuel consumption, and environmental impact. The emissions of greenhouse gases are particularly dealt with. The improvement of the battery, or fuel cell, performance and governmental incentives will play a fundamental role in determining how far and how substantial alternative vehicles will penetrate into the market. An adequate recharging infrastructure is of paramount importance for the diffusion of vehicles powered by batteries and fuel cells, as it may contribute to overcome the so-called range anxiety."" Thus, proposed battery charging techniques are summarized and hydrogen refueling stations are described. The final chapter reviews the state of the art of the current models of hybrid and electric vehicles along with the powertrain solutions adopted by the major automakers.

This thesis addresses power scheduling aspects of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. The use of electric vehicles (EVs) as demand response resources and the unidirectional vehicle-to-grid benefits obtainable are investigated. Power draw could be scheduled with the EV0́9s charger being in control of charging or via utility control. Charging cost func-tions suitable for a charger and utility-controlled power-draw scheduling are presented. Ancillary service levels possible with unidirectional vehicle-to-grid are quantified using different charging scenarios. Impacts of various electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle power-draw schedules, and the vehicles0́9 participation as demand-response resources on electricity prices are evaluated. This includes cost benefits to the owners, and load-serving entities. Also, a discussion comparing unidirectional and bidirectional V2G benefits is given. Finally, ideas on encouraging vehicle-to-grid participation by electric vehicle owners are proposed, and the role utilities or aggregators have to play is discussed.

This essay sheds light on why plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are the best type of vehicles and elucidates why natural gas vehicles do not warrant the cost. Moreover, why electric cars do not warrant the cost is delineated and the ample problems with buying an electric vehicle are explicated in this essay. Furthermore, the criteria for how to determine if buying a car is worth the investment is demystified and how to earn substantial money online so that you can afford to finance your plug-in hybrid electric vehicle purchase is expounded upon in this essay. While it may seem far fetched, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are the utmost best type of vehicles available for sale on the car market in the digital era. Succinctly stated, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are the utmost best type of vehicles since they can operate off electric power or gasoline, unlike other types of vehicles. "The reason that hybrid vehicles are more efficient than conventional gasoline-only vehicles is because they have the ability to 'reclaim' energy that was once wasted, for example, the energy used when braking" ("Plug In Hybrid," 2012). Regenerative braking for instance allows plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to partially recharge their battery pack. Regenerative braking can be exhibited enroute and helps prolong the vehicle's driving duration before the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle becomes rendered inoperable. In stark contrast to a typical hybrid vehicle, the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle has the highly pragmatic ability to be recharged "by connecting it to a wall outlet in your home or elsewhere" ("Plug In Hybrid," 2012). More customers are beginning to take heed of the possibility of procuring a plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. It is far more affordable it is to operate a car off of wattage as opposed to gasoline. Customers can even convert their existing hybrid vehicles into plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. This process involves going to an auto body shop so that vehicular modifications can allow their hybrid vehicle to be able to recharged when connected into "a wall outlet in your home or elsewhere" ("Plug In Hybrid," 2012). In order for a hybrid vehicle to become a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, an auto mechanic will need to "add extra batteries into the vehicle in order to improve the hybrid's electrical holding capacity and will also need to add a 'jack' "("Plug In Hybrid," 2012) so that it can connect "to the power grid" ("Plug In Hybrid," 2012). Even though converting a hybrid vehicle into a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle can be very costly, it is an expenditure worth paying if you profusely utilize your vehicle. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles offer a host of benefits to vehicle owners. "The extra battery capacity of the plug-in hybrid is the key to reaping the benefits of the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle configuration. On a conventional hybrid car, that kind of extra capacity is out of reach since the hybrid vehicle never fully charges except on long freeway trips. By adding the plug in jack with the extra battery, the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle has the ability to use its extra capacity by running on all-electric mode for an extended range of 30 miles or more. That means that instead of depleting expense gasoline, the car uses electrical energy which is much cheaper. Since most trips are less than 30 miles, that means the vehicle can operate in-town without ever using a drop of gasoline" ("Plug In Hybrid," 2012). Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles discharge minimal tailpipe emissions relative to conventional gasoline powered vehicles. This means that they help reduce mankind's carbon footprint and decelerate the rate of climate change due to a reduction of carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere. Furthermore, by owning a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle you are less dependent on needing gasoline to fuel your vehicle than most vehicle owners. Fortunately, a plug-in hybrid vehicles can operate off of electricity.
