With the increasing of electric vehicle (EV) adoption in recent years, the
impact of EV charging activities to the power grid becomes more and more
significant. In this article, an optimal scheduling algorithm which combines
smart EV charging and V2G gird service is developed to integrate EVs into power
grid as distributed energy resources, with improved system cost performance.
Specifically, an optimization problem is formulated and solved at each EV
charging station according to control signal from aggregated control center and
user charging behavior prediction by mean estimation and linear regression. Read More
