IEEE SmartGridComm Symposium on

Scope and Motivation

Pluggable EV will become a new significant entity in today’s electricity system. The resulting increase in electricity demand is not only a risk for a system but also a chance to increase the manageability of the electricity system. E.g. the introduction of EVs might improve the integration of renewable energy resources into the grid. Beyond the direct power management the EV will be included in the diversity of smart grid applications currently under discussion. E.g. also dynamic pricing models and automatic billing systems are discussed for charging processes. And even beyond that the EV will also introduce new smart grid applications. For instance the public charging infrastructure requires coping with roaming infrastructure users and changing users behind the connection point equipped with a smart meter. Accordingly clearing houses and identity providers are introduced into the smart grid.

Topics of Particular interest

The symposium aims to focus on applications and communication technologies enabling Vehicle2Grid services, including (but not limited to):

  • Energy and Power Management
    • Energy and power management systems integrating EVs into the smart grid
    • Research work coping with the dual use of EVs (personal use and vehicle 2 grid)
  • Fleet management and infrastructure operation
    • Research work on communication systems for fleet management and infrastructure operation
  • Messaging and control protocols
    • Research work on communication protocols used for interfacing between the EV, the smart grid and the variety of stakeholders
    • Messaging and control protocols between Home Area Networks and vehicles
  • Experiences from field trials focusing on the integration of EVs in smart grid applications.
    • Roaming EVs connecting to public charging infrastructure
    • Experiences on Vehicle2Grid applications
    • Experiences on applications using the EV for grid services, e.g. demand response
