A model and simulation of EV use in environments with V2H and battery replacement infrastructure

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This paper proposes a model for city-scale EV infrastructures. Recent advances both in EV battery technology and alternative battery ownership formulations have created favorable conditions for houses where EVs are used not only for commuting but also as one of the main power supplies. Power supplied by EVs is a natural complement for solar panels, where the former is the only choice at night when solar panels cannot function by definition. The proposed model is based on a system of practical considerations with the main objective to build simulations as close to reality as possible. The model is applicable to a wide range of simulations including EV infrastructures, distributed power microgrids, smart cities, etc.
