Driven by the environment concern and sustainable requirement, electric
vehicles (EVs) have attracted global attention as they provide more
environmentally friendly transportation. However, the large-scale utilization
of EVs will greatly increase the electricity consumption in the grid. If
charging of EVs are not managed, it will pose significant impact on grid and
require expensive grid reinforcement. On the other hand, vehicle to grid
(V2G) and smart charging will provide opportunities to minimize grid impact
and provide grid support for smooth integration of EVs. Moreover, V2G
integrated with renewables to form a virtual power plant (VPP) for enhanced
sustainability and profits. As researcher in this project you will design
smart charging strategies for EV integration and grid support, as well as the
coordination of power grids with VPPs.
