This book explores critical technologies advancing electric vehicles’ design, efficiency, and infrastructure. Across five chapters, the book examines crucial topics underpinning the ongoing EV revolution. The first chapter provides an extensive look at the development of electric vehicle infrastructure worldwide. It details various initiatives, policies, and progress across regions in establishing networks of EV charging stations. Discussion ranges from factors driving infrastructure rollout to optimal planning methodologies and equipment standards. Moving to vehicle systems, chapter two delves into hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). It provides a comprehensive background on HEV configurations, working principles, control strategies, and design optimizations. The transformational potential of HEVs for sustainable transportation is also analyzed in depth. Regenerative braking forms the focus of chapter three. The technical discussion encompasses the design, control systems, energy recovery efficiency, battery wear impacts, and performance benefits of regen braking in EV and HEV contexts. Comparative analysis is provided on different motor-based approaches. The pivotal role of civil engineering in enabling EV adoption forms the basis of the fourth chapter. Key integration opportunities are elucidated, from smart power grids to road construction suited for EVs. Civil engineers’ knowledge base and skillsets toward advancing charging infrastructure is also covered. Finally, chapter five outlines battery management system technology for EVs. Guiding optimal battery usage, this system component plays an indispensable role in performance, efficiency, and safety. Parameter monitoring, charging control, cell balancing, and thermal management are aspects examined. Comprehensively addressing multiple technologies essential to the EV landscape, this book will benefit engineering professionals, researchers, and policymakers working to usher in sustainable electric transportation.
