The renewable energy sources and plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) are becoming very popular because of the combination of high fuel costs and concerns about emission issues. This paper presents modelling and control of a Building Integrated Fuel Cell and Plug-in Electric Vehicles (BIFC-PEV) in smart distribution systems. In BIFC-PEV system, conventional building elements could be replaced by special fuel cell and PEV for delivering power to the house. The interest in battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) has increased due to their impact on redistribution of the pollution from tail pipe to smog stuck, low-cost charging, and reduced petroleum usages. First, the overall configuration of the BIFC-PEV including dynamic models of fuel cell, battery and its power electronic interfacing are briefly described. Then, to distribute the power between power sources, the fuzzy power controller has been developed to stabilize the DC-link power. Simulation results are illustrated to demonstrate the effectiveness and capability of proposed control strategy during different operating conditions in utility grid.
