Electric and hybrid vehicles have been globally identified to be the most environmentally friendly road transportation. This book provides comprehensive coverage of energy systems for electric and hybrid vehicles with a focus on the three main energy system technologies – energy sources, battery charging and vehicle-to-grid systems.

Topics covered include;

  • energy source systems (electrochemical energy sources, flywheel energy storage, hybrid energy sources, solar energy harvesting, electromagnetic energy regeneration and thermoelectric energy recovery)
  • battery technologies (battery charging strategies and battery management techniques, emerging wireless charging techniques for electric vehicles and the concept of energy cryptography for secure wireless power transfer)
  • vehicle-to-X technology (vehicle-to-home, vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-grid energy systems)
