Solutions for Electric Vehicle Integration into Power Grids

Funded by: National Science Foundation Country: Worldwide Date Range: 2012-2015 Project Lead: College of Engineering Notre Dame Collaborators: NDIGD

This National Science Foundation-funded project designs algorithms for the integration of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PEVs) into the power grid. Charging at both commercial charging stations and at residences were included in this study, for both the case when PEVs only function as loads, and the case when they can also function as sources, equipped with vehicle-to-home or vehicle-to-grid energy reinjection capability. NDIGD assisted in coordinating this project.
