This chapter focuses on energy storage by electric vehicles and its impact in terms of the energy storage system (ESS) on the power system. Due to ecological disaster, electric vehicles (EV) are a paramount substitute for internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. However, energy storage systems provide hurdles for EV systems in terms of their safety, size, cost, and general management issues. Furthermore, focusing solely on EVs is insufficient because electrical vehicle charging stations (EVCS) are also required for the deployment of these vehicles. Because these vehicles are powered by electricity, installing these charging stations presents some challenges. Grid overloading and load forecasting were previously major issues. The latter refers to charging time and charging station traffic management. This chapter discusses the essential terms of charging stations (CS). To address these issues, various technologies are discussed, including a brief overview of lithium-ion battery charging techniques and battery management system (BMS). As the Indian government is focusing on creating an an eco-friendly system, and as ...
