Electric and hybrid vehicles have been globally identified to be the most environmental friendly road transportation. Energy Systems for Electric and Hybrid Vehicles provides comprehensive coverage of the three main energy system technologies of these vehicles - energy sources, battery charging and vehicle-to-grid systems.

The book begins with a discussion of energy source systems, covering electrochemical energy sources, flywheel energy storage, hybrid energy sources, solar energy harvesting, electromagnetic energy regeneration and thermoelectric energy recovery. Then battery technologies are covered, including battery charging strategies and battery management techniques, emerging wireless charging techniques for electric vehicles and the concept of energy cryptography for secure wireless power transfer. Finally vehicle-to-X technology is discussed, embracing the vehicle-to-home, vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-grid energy systems, for electric and hybrid vehicles.

Combining insights from an international team of authors, this book is essential reading for researchers and advanced students developing electric/hybrid vehicles and intelligent transport systems in industry and academia.
