EV in the 21st Century

5 October 2023

In the ever-evolving landscape of the 21st century, the quest for sustainable energy solutions has taken centre stage. Energy Management Systems (EMS) have emerged as a critical tool in optimising energy consumption, reducing carbon emissions, and harnessing renewable sources like Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Photovoltaic (PV) systems. The issues of global warming and use of fossil fuels have paved opportunities for the industry.

In addition, the rapid development of power electronics technologies has even realised high energy-efficient vehicles. EV could be the alternative to decrease the global greenhouse gases emission as the energy consumption in the world’s transportation is high. However, EV faces huge challenges in battery cost since it represents one-third of the EV cost.

As a new player in sustainable solutions, Mastertech offers a range of EV and PV products that align with this vision.

The Rise of Energy Management Systems (EMS)

EVs and PVs, EMS plays a pivotal role in ensuring efficient energy utilisation. EVs have emerged as a game-changer in the transportation sector, offering a cleaner and more sustainable alternative to traditional internal combustion engine vehicles. Energy Management Systems act as the brain behind the operation of these vehicles, optimising charging and discharging cycles, managing battery health, and ensuring a seamless integration with the grid.

EMS enabled features such as smart charging, where EVs charge during off-peak hours when energy demand is lower, and therefore reducing stress on the grid and lowering electricity costs. It also facilitates vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology, allowing EVs to discharge excess energy back to the grid during peak demand, turning them into mobile energy storage units. This dual direction energy flow enhances grid stability and maximises the utilisation of renewable energy sources.

Photovoltaic (PV) Systems: Harvesting Solar Energy

PV systems, commonly known as solar panels, have gained prominence as a clean and abundant source of energy. EMS enhances the efficiency of PV systems by monitoring solar irradiance, tracking the sun’s position, and optimising the energy output of solar panels. Through real-time data analysis, EMS ensures that PV systems generate the maximum energy possible, even under varying weather conditions.

One of the primary advantages of PV systems is their environmental friendliness. Unlike conventional energy sources like coal or natural gas, PV systems produce electricity without emitting greenhouse gases or pollutants. This results in a significant reduction in carbon emissions and air pollution, contributing to global efforts to mitigate climate change. Additionally, PV systems require minimal water for operation, in contrast to water-intensive fossil fuel power plants.

In addition, EMS enables the integration of energy storage solutions with PV systems. Excess energy generated during sunny periods can be stored in batteries for use during cloudy days or at night. This seamless energy transition not only makes PV systems more reliable but also contributes to reducing the strain on the conventional grid infrastructure.
