Zachary Fertig, Mariya Kossover, John Majors, Nicole Stoff ECE 317 Abstract September 20, 2011 Since the seventeenth century, scientists and engineers have been searching for a way to develop feasible hybrid technology, with the focus shifting toward electric vehicles in the twentieth century. However, it was not until the turn of the millennium when Toyota revolutionized the automotive landscape with the Prius. Now, scientists and engineers are trying to take this concept one step further and mass produce plug-in hybrid vehicles. These vehicles amplify the benefits of traditional hybrids, while moving toward further sustainability and efficiency. Plug- in hybrid cars differ from conventional hybrid cars in their ability to “plug - in” to the electric power grid. A single-phase bidirectional AC/DC converter is used in order to connect the DC batteries to the AC power grid. With a bidirectional converter, vehicle-to-grid technology will
