Owing to the consistent increase in energy efficiency issues, studies for improving the charging efficiency and energy density of batteries have been receiving attention in the electric vehicle transportation sector. This paper deals with an online electric vehicle (OLEV) system which utilizes the dc power system for reducing loss as well as reducing the size of the required battery capacity. Intensive research on grid integration with OLEV has not been performed until recently and it is necessary to calculate the power flow analysis considering the unique characteristics of OLEV for the commercialization of this new transport system (for the application of this new system in the transport sector). In this paper, the dc OLEV power system is being investigated for reducing line losses and peak power thereby reducing the electric cost levied on the substation. Verification processes are performed through simulation for various scenarios to examine the effectiveness of the proposed system in terms of power consumption, battery state of charge, peak power, and loss reduction.
