Diverse Effects of Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer Roadway In-Motion Electric Vehicle Charging


With the advent of dynamic wireless power transfer
(DWPT) electric vehicle (EV) in-motion charging has caused
many concerns to arise regarding the feasibility of such an
infrastructure. These systems rely heavily on vehicle density
levels, velocity of travel, and capacity limits of transmitter
pads to determine the amount of electric load that could be
present. In relation to electric power distribution systems, this
can cause diverse effects to occur if not mitigated properly.
This paper presents an approach to determine the mitigation
strategy for electric load demands with an effective utilization
of photovoltaic (PV) modules and battery energy storage
system (BESS) on DWPT. Test results demonstrate that load
demands from a DWPT roadway generate rapid fluctuations
in voltage magnitudes of approximately 10%, which is shown
to decrease to 4.9% using our proposed approach.
