Gridable (Plug-in) Vehicles -Smart Grid Integration

Ahmed Y. Saber and Ganesh K. Venayagamoorthy

Gridable (Plug-in) Vehicles -Smart Grid IntegrationSmart grid consists of conventional generations, wind, solar and gridable vehicles (GVs). Intelligent optimization methods result in reduction of cost of energy and emission. GVs operate in two modes: grid-to-vehicle (G2V, loads and storage), and vehicle-to-grid (V2G, sources). “Smartparks with GVs” are as virtual power plants consisting of several small portable power plants (vehicles).

Impact of Plug-in Vehicles on Power System StabilityV2G power transactions are going to be an integrated part of the smart grid. This study shows how sudden charging and discharging of the SmartParks will impact the power system stability and demonstrates the potential of a wide-area controller to mitigate the impacts.
