Effects of the Incorporation of Electric Vehicles on Protection Coordination in Microgrids
Author(s): Saldarriaga-Zuluaga SD, López-Lezama JM, Zuluaga Ríos CD, Villa Jaramillo A.
Electric vehicles (EVs) would connect to the grid using clean, renewable electricity; however, the interconnection between EVs and the grid brings about new challenges for traditional power systems. Plug-in hybrid and plug-in EVs have become more prevalent in the system; therefore, their impacts and benefits are also of concern.
Life-Cycle Analysis of Greenhouse Gas Emissions of Hydrogen, and Recommendations for China
Author(s): Yuanrong Z, Zhen Z, Li Y
This study estimates the carbon intensity of eleven hydrogen pathways in China and compares them to the eligibility requirements for the fuel cell vehicle (FCV) pilot city program in China that promotes the adoption of FCVs and the use of hydrogen fuel.
Recommendations for the Next Generation of China’s Heavy-Duty Vehicle Emission Standard Based on Testing of China VI Vehicles
Author(s): Niu T, Rodríguez F
This study analyzes on-road and laboratory testing of two trucks certified under the China VI-b emission standard and examines the gaps between China VI and the latest developments in European standards.
Integrating Refrigerants with Low Global Warming Potential into India’s Light Vehicle Fuel Efficiency Standards
Author(s): Deo A, German J, Callahan J
This study analyzes potential reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from using alternative refrigerants with low global warming potential and more efficient air conditioning systems in vehicles in India.
No Fleet Left Behind: Barriers and Opportunities for Small Fleet Zero-Emission Trucking
Author(s): Brito J
This paper evaluates the zero-emission truck market and suggests actions to overcome barriers for adoption for small fleets. Failing to support small fleets would put them at risk of being unable to transition to zero-emission vehicles, in turn putting jurisdictions at risk of failing to achieve emissions reduction targets.
Assessment of Light-Duty Electric Vehicle Costs and Consumer Benefits in the United States in the 2022–2035 Time Frame
Author(s): Slowik P, Isenstadt A, Pierce L, Searle S
The study analyzes component-level costs to evaluate electric vehicle price parity with conventional vehicles.
The Evolution of Heavy-Duty Vehicles in China: A Retrospective Evaluation of CO2 and Pollutant Emissions from 2012 to 2021
Author(s): Mao S, Rodríguez F
The study evaluates the effectiveness of policies in China for curtailing emissions from heavy-duty vehicles over the 2012-2021 period
Fuel Cell Hybrid Electric Vehicles: A Review of Topologies and Energy Management Strategies
Author(s): Yu P, Li M, Wang Y, Chen Z.
This paper summarizes and concludes various energy management strategies at the current stage and analyses the advantages and disadvantages and the main roles of various energy management strategies.
Synergy of Unidirectional and Bidirectional Smart Charging of Electric Vehicles for Frequency Containment Reserve Power Provision
Author(s): Schlund J, German R, Pruckner M.
In this paper, the authors analyzed how vast amounts of coordinated charging processes can be used to provide frequency containment reserve (FCR) power, one of the most important ancillary services for system stability.
A Study on Additive Manufacturing for Electromobility
Author(s): Schuhmann D, Rockinger C, Merkel M, Harrison DK.
Additive manufacturing (AM) allows producing components resource efficient and environment friendly. AM can also be used to optimize the design of components in mechanical and physical terms. This way, functionally integrated, lightweight, highly efficient, and innovative components can be manufactured with the help of additive manufacturing in Industry 4.0.
