Electric Vehicle Integration

Start and end dates: 
January, 2009 to December, 2013
Prevailing Stage of Development: 
Research & Development
Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
This project will take two typical LV (220V) circuits, one urban and one rural and will examine in detail through modelling and through demonstration. the impact of EV’s on the network. The specific objectives of this project are:• Assess amount of Electric Vehicle Charging allowable on existing network;• Identification of low cost investments required to increase network EV capacity;• Assess impact on power quality of EV and how this can be kept within standard without unduly limiting use of EV;• Assess scope for use of EV in DSM through HAN control via Smart Meter;• Assess scope for future use of Electric Vehicle to Grid (V2G) operations; and• Assess (by simulation) the interaction between plugged-in vehicles and variable electricity (wind generated)
