The increase in the electric vehicle mobility has encouraged the growth of vehicle to grid technology. The vehicle to grid technology allows bidirectional power flow between the battery of electric vehicle and grid. This allows peak load shaving, load levelling voltage regulation and improvement of power system stability. In this project we developed onboard bidirectional battery charger for Electric Vehicles (EVs) targeting Grid-to-Vehicle (G2V), Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G), and Vehicle-to-Home (V2H) technologies. During the G2V operation mode batteries are charged from the power grid with sinusoidal current and unitary power factor. During the V2G operation mode the energy stored in the batteries can be delivered back to the power grid contributing to the power system stability. In the V2H operation mode the energy stored in the batteries can be used to supply home loads during power outages, or to supply loads in places without connection to the power grid. Along the paper the hardware topology of the bidirectional battery charger is presented. Some considerations about the sizing of the AC side passive filter are considered to improve the performance in the three operation modes. The adopted topology and computer simulations and validated by experimental results achieved.
