Plug-In Electric Vehicle Integration

By Islam Safak Bayram, Ali Tajer

270 pages, marked as a review copy. ". . . authoritative resource that provides a comprehensive introduction to plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and portrays a holistic overview of the challenges associated with the mainstream adoption of PEVs at three distinct layers pertinent to the technological, economic, and social aspects. From a technological perspective, "Plug-in Electric Vehicle Grid Integration" discusses various critical enabling technologies, such as energy storage, electric charging standards (e.g., fast, slow, and bidirectional), power converters, and telecommunication technologies. It explains how the economic layer formulates and analyzes the interface and the interactions between the charging infrastructure and PEV drivers. These include addressing architecture and modes for designing sustainable charging infrastructures, energy storage sizing, capacity planning, and optimal placement of small- and large-scale charging stations. Furthermore, the decision mechanisms for optimal charging rates under various pricing schemes and user preference models are investigated thoroughly. "Plug-in Electric Vehicle Grid Integration" is a unique volume that also explains how mainstream adoption of PEVs necessitates integrating relevant social aspects into the technological and economic frameworks. Readers gain insight into the socioeconomic factors influencing individual preferences toward replacing gas-powered vehicles with PEVs. Specifically, "Plug-in Electric Vehicle Grid Integration" analyzes the current purchasing behavior via relevant and widely adopted models, such as diffusion of innovations, theory of planned behavior, and rational choice theory. Additionally, "Plug-in Electric Vehicle Grid Integration" is an indispensable reference and resource for policy makers to prioritize and adjust incentive programs that facilitate mainstream PEV adoption. "Plug-in Electric Vehicle Grid Integration" underscores how successful PEV integration requires co-investigating and designing all three layers in a holistic framework. Critique: An impressive and seminal work of outstanding scholarship offering a complete and comprehensive study under one cover, "Plug-in Electric Vehicle Grid Integration" is exceptionally well written, organized and presented, making it an ideal and unreservedly recommended addition to corporate, governmental, college, and academic library Power Engineering collections in general, and supplemental studies reading lists in particular."
