1 Energy for Transportation and Developments in Plug-in Vehicles
Guenter Conzelmann Center for Energy, Environmental, and Economic Systems Analysis Decision and Information Sciences Division (DIS) Argonne National Laboratory 9700 South Cass Avenue Argonne, IL 60439

2 Why Electric Transportation?
The nation has an oil problem U.S. is refining more oil than it has, and consumes even more The current high oil prices reflect the increasing global demand for a limited energy resource: China is number 2 in oil use and India is 6th…and growing Oil is predominately a transportation energy problem, with economic, environmental, and geopolitical concerns for the nation Oil is an energy security issue Reliance on domestic oil is not sustainable, we cannot drill our way out of the problem Even optimistic projections leave us heavily dependent on foreign oil

3 Electric Vehicles: Are they Real?

4 Electric Vehicles are Part of the Government-Industry Partnership Advanced Propulsion Portfolio Vision Portfolio approach as there is no clear winner Likely, the U.S. solution with include a mix of technologies with multiple fuel sources (electricity, biofuels, alternative fuels, etc.)

5 Existing Battery Technologies do not yet Approach the Energy and Power in an Internal Combustion (IC) Engine R&D on New Technologies is still needed

6 HEV, PHEV, E-REV, BEV, AEV, CS, CD, V2G, etc
HEV, PHEV, E-REV, BEV, AEV, CS, CD, V2G, etc.: Might as well Talk to my Dog???

7 The Main Concepts in Simple Terms
HEV: Hybrid electric vehicle (Ford Escape, Toyota Prius) Small battery, gets recharged from regenerative breaking; very limited all-electric range No plug PHEV: Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Larger battery; gets charged by plugging I Different drivetrain configurations Series: ICE turns generator which charges battery which runs electric motor (Chevy Volt) Parallel: ICE and electric motor both run the car simultaneously (Honda Insight) Mix E-REV: Extended Range Electric Vehicle A PHEV with a bigger battery for driving ranges of miles using only the battery (all-electric driving); after which the gas engine starts BEV: Battery Electric Vehicles Pure electric vehicles; only has an electric drivetrain When your out of battery, you are out of battery

8 Basic Concept of a Plug-in Electric Vehicle
10 kWh JCS Li-ion battery

9 Different Ways of Controlling/Operating PHEVs Engines/Batteries
Blended Modes (conventional engine cycles on/off fairly frequently) All-Electric Modes (conventional engine stays off for an extended period of time until the battery charge reaches a certain level; then starts up) SOC: State of Charge (Battery)

10 There Will be a Substantial Cost Premium to Early Adopters; Estimates of Premium Vary Noticeably

11 Estimated Paybacks Can be Very Long; But the More you Drive (and the Higher the Price of Gasoline), the Better it is Source: Sharer and Rousseau, 2009, ANL

12 Increases in Powertrain Cost are Not the Only Cost Increases that Consumers May Need to Pay
Chargers and cord and connector between vehicle and plus Charging Circuit Upgrades or Installation If you want faster charging, you will need an upgrade Level 1: Your standard circuit (110V, 20Amps, 1.1 KW) Level 2: Upgraded circuit (220V, 15 Amps, 3.3 kW) 12

13 Examples for In-Home Charging and Public Charge Stations

14 How do We Use Vehicles? PHEVs with an all-electric-range (AER) of 20 Miles could cover about 40% of daily Vehicles-Miles-Traveled (VMT) on electricity PHEVs with a 30-Mile AER could cover about 55% of Daily VMTs

15 How do We Use Vehicles? (2)
Weekday Last Vehicle Trip Ending Time Shows a Sharp Peak At 5-6 PM, Totaling 15% of Vehicles The chart shows national data. Similar patterns can be observed for different regions in the country. 15 15 Go to ”Insert (View) | Header and Footer" to add your organization, sponsor, meeting name here; then, click "Apply to All" 15

16 How do We Use Vehicles? (3)
Some variation; the hottest months have the smallest peak hour share Jan-Mar Apr-Jun Oct-Dec July-Sep 16 Go to ”Insert (View) | Header and Footer" to add your organization, sponsor, meeting name here; then, click "Apply to All" 16

17 Worst Case: Charging Starts when People Arrive at their Homes; Will Show Grid Impacts

18 A Smart Vehicle-Grid Interface Configuration (Smart Grid, Smart Vehicle) will Reduce (Avoid?) System Impacts V2G

19 Utilities see PHEV Smart-Charging as Critical for Success
Impact of PEVs on the 2020 Summer Load of Southern California Electric Power Grid Peak power will increase substantially without management Optimal management requires smart grids and smart vehicles Local circuits (blocks and neighborhoods) must be protected from overload Transformers need cooling periods at night Lifetime may be reduced Consumer education and pricing policy will be key enablers Source: SCE, 2009

20 Best Case: Smart-Charging Delays Start of Battery Charging, and Perfectly Fills the Load Night-time Valley 20 20

21 V2G: Vehicles could be an Active Component of the Future Grid
Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) is a PHEV equipped with a communications interface Control signals are sent from the grid operator to manage the flow of energy between the vehicle and the grid Changing charging rate; reversing the flow of energy to feed back to the grid depending on a variety of factors including current grid load, current amount of renewable generation, state of charge of the vehicle, and real-time energy pricing Direct load control (similar to AC programs) With true bi-directional flow capability, vehicles could provide ancillary grid services Frequency control, regulation and spinning reserves Help penetration of intermittent renewable energy generation resources (solar and wind) Another option is Vehicle-to-House (V2H) Plug-in vehicles treated as power generation resource along with solar or wind power, and controlled directly by an energy management system which controls the energy load at the home or business Some issues Automakers want dumb charging (KISS), utilities want smart charging Distribution system not built for bi-directional flows; will need infrastructure investments Communication infrastructure would have to be developed Effect of increased grid-controlled cycling on battery life time

22 Argonne is Analyzing Grid Integration Issues of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles
New analysis initiated for DOE Total of 4 case studies at different levels of detail Western Interconnect, Illinois, New York ISO, New England ISO Involves projecting PHEV penetration, electricity demand, charging scenarios, grid and infrastructure impacts, electricity prices, and emissions Western Interconnect Model Representation 22

23 Summary of Recent Studies on Impacts of PHEVs on Power Systems
Study Where? When? How Much PHEVs? Hadley, 2008 (ORNL): Estimates marginal generation needed in individual regions. Estimates GHGs and criteria pollutants. Thirteen 2007 NERC Regions a) after 5 PM b) after 10 PM 25% on-road LDV share in 2030 Lemoine, 2008 (UC Berkeley): Estimates CAISO (CA) capability to meet PHEV electric demand. California a) evening (1 charge/day) b) morning and evening (2 charges/day) Several penetration scenarios from 20% of annual new vehicle sales to 100% by PHEVs Miller, 2007 (Atomic Energy of Canada Limited): Aggregate analysis of new nuclear electricity supply required. Ontario Off-peak charging of PHEVs, balance of plant output replacing current coal. One third of LDV energy demand is from electricity EPRI & NRDC, 2007: Examines GHG impacts of PHEVs under three alternative futures: low, medium, and high carbon intensity Thirteen 2007 NERC regions Charging distributed throughout the day, but mainly off-peak 3 scenarios: 20%, 62%, and 80% share of new LDV sales by PHEVs in 2050 Kintner-Meyer, 2007 (PNNL) 12 modified NERC Regions Valley filling of daily electric load curve Estimates total available energy to charge PHEVs 23 23 23
