About this Research Topic
The synergetic cooperation between electric mobility and smart grids will encourage collaborative engagement by different players in the energy market, offering sophisticated management and control approaches. Therefore, new advances and innovative technologies toward such cooperation are of preeminent importance. To ensure excellent power grid performance and stability considering the scope of different solutions of electric mobility in the context of smart grids, power quality aspects must also be considered. For this purpose, the introduction of innovative technologies of renewable energy systems and energy storage systems are seen as fundamental to encourage and facilitate the spread out of electric mobility and smart grids. Furthermore, based on collaborative and concerted operation, it is possible to accomplish with environmental targets and accommodate the demand for electricity.
The Research Topic aims to organize and originate a guideline for future perspectives of electric mobility and smart grids, including all the related contributions with these subjects. Therefore, academic scientists and researchers, including MSc and PhD students, as well as professional communities, are welcome to submit their original works. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Advanced technologies of on-board and off-board bidirectional chargers (i.e., V2G, G2V, V4G);
• Electric mobility in on-grid and off-grid scenarios;
• Unified systems for electric mobility, renewables, and energy storage systems;
• Electric mobility integration in industrial, commercial, and residential scenarios;
• Technologies of wireless power transfer for electric mobility;
• Innovative solutions for energy efficiency in transportation;
• Integrated solutions for charging and propulsion systems;
• Technology and innovation for railways;
• Power quality, reliability, and security.
Keywords: electric mobility, smart grids, renewables, energy storage, power quality
