Electric Vehicle and Wireless Charging Laboratory

Laboratory projects have included EV charging and discharging through computer assisted communication networks, evaluation of wireless chargers and operation of a bi-directional vehicle-to-building power inverter system. Wireless charging tests have been conducted to document testing protocols, evaluate standards and evaluate operational related wireless charging characteristics. The investigation of using EV traction batteries as distributed energy resources for improving building and utility electric grid efficiency and quality is being conducted. Also under development is an automated communications system to include the bi-directional charger into the building energy management system. The lab has also conducted measurement from varying battery types and electric vehicle chargers (type, rating, programmability).
