Abstract(s)This paper presents an innovative off-board electric vehicle home charging station (EV-HCS) operating as a smart home (SH) enabler. The present status and the proposed perspectives in terms of operation modes are comprehensively addressed along the paper showing the contextualization of the addressed research topic. Comparing with the existing solution, the main motivations and advantages of the off-board EV-HCS are: (a) Off-board dc EV charger, faster than a classical on-board EV charger; (b) Flexible operating power value, aiming an optimized power management in the home; (c) Operation as an active conditioner for the home or the grid, with or without an EV plugged-in, which represents an attractive functionality for enhancing the operation of SHs and smart grids; (d) Bidirectional operation with an EV. The methods used to describe these advantages are validated using computer simulations. The control algorithm is succinctly described, demonstrating its adaptability to the power electronics topology presented for the EV-HCS hardware. The obtained results demonstrate that the proposed EV-HCS presents attractive functionalities for enhancing the EV integration into SHs and smart grids.
