Cover Story: As generally recognized, the G2V/V2G operations incorporated EV with utility grid and microgrid can effectively reduce fossil energy utilization. This paper develops an electric vehicle (EV) synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM) drive and its vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and vehicle-to-microgrid (V2M) bidirectional operations. A wind switched-reluctance generator (SRG) based microgrid is employed here as test plant.... View this paper.
