Abstract: Recently electric vehicles are gaining more attention. The major factor to be noted in the development of electric vehicle is the battery technology. Concerned with the battery, a fast charging scheme should be used. In this paper a novel fast charging scheme for the electric vehicle is proposed. Hybrid energy storage system which is a combination of battery and Super capacitor is used, and also online fuzzy logic controller is used for real time evaluation. Hybrid electric vehicles have a major focus in recent years and they have been made leaps and bounds in development. The major benefit of using Hybrid energy Storage System is that the life span of the batteries are extended also the charging time of the battery is greatly reduced. The Fuzzy Logic Controller keeps the State Of Charge within limits which also enhances the life time of the battery.
Keywords: Electric Vehicle (EV), Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC), Hybrid Energy Storage System (HESS), State Of Charge (SOC).
