Topic: Rail Technology Forum: Electric Vehicle Infra Structure

Technology Synopsis: Electric vehicles are a rapidly growing segment of transportation industry owning much of this progress to the improved technologies, public inclination towards minimizing carbon footprint, and government policy initiatives. Currently this industry is undergoing a technological transformation by investing heavily in charging stations infrastructure to improve the vehicle travel range. The charging station market is segmented on the basis of type, end user, and geography. This presentation discusses an integrated fast charging system that connects electric vehicles (VE), power grid, off-grid energy storage and renewable energy sources into one distributed system through a smart management of power and available energy, to enable clean, sustainable operation at high levels of performance. The experimental results of a lab prototype for electric vehicles (buses) are presented. A design case of electric bus deployed for the city of Mississauga is developed and demonstrated with excellent trial run results.
