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.What we offer
