The Use an Electric Vehicle as a Power Source

Kristyna Friedrischkova, David Vala, Bohumil Horak


Electric cars are becoming a serious competition for the common artificial fuel driven cars in small city agglomerates and short distances. With the new developments on the field of state-of-art accumulators, electric cars are becoming much more that just a single use items, but can serve a number of roles. One of them is possibility to use excessive energy stored in the batteries and its rerouting from the car to other systems (such as offices, family houses, lighting etc.). This brief article is making a suggestion on usage and lifecycle of traction batteries, interconnection of the house and its electric car. Additionally, logic and control of such a transfer processes is put to the test for conclusion, that the electric car can be used as both the mean of transportation as well as energy source while in the meantime its primary function is not dampened at all.
