Smart grid emerging technologies include plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to assist the grid in peak hours and be used as storage devices. However, as the size of the vehicle increases, they may impose heavy loads on the grid during charging hours. To reduce the effect of heavy loads on the grid, accurate planning for vehicle charging, stationary charge sharing, and the usage of onboard generators may be considered. This paper introduces a power management strategy for the use of renewable energy in hybrid electric trucks and smart grids.
