This paper introduces the main concept of battery charging and discharging of an electric car with an intelligent charging system. With the intelligent charger, the bottlenecks in the distribution system can be minimized. The charging system has also an option to discharge the batteries and provide backup power in the case of a distribution network failure. With the intelligent charging and discharging, the effects of electric cars on the distribution network and investments related to them can be essentially minimized.
