A battery electric vehicle (BEV) is a widely used type of electric vehicle (EV) that uses chemical energy stored in rechargeable battery packs. BEVs are becoming more attractive with the advancement of new battery technology that has higher power and energy density and allowing matching the requested autonomy and vehicle dynamics. BEV batteries are recharged on board vehicles using either the grid (G2V for Grid to Vehicle) or renewable energies in a stand-alone application (H2V for Home to Vehicle). This paper deals with the design, modeling, sizing and control of a photovoltaic stand-alone H2V application that can fully charge the BEV overnight at home. The different topologies are presented with the sizing and simulation results.
