Overview

Presenting the policy drivers, benefits and challenges for grid integration of electric vehicles (EVs) in the open electricity market environment, this book provides a comprehensive overview of existing electricity markets and demonstrates how EVs are integrated into these different markets and power systems.

Unlike other texts, this book analyses EV integration in parallel with electricity market design, showing the interaction between EVs and differing electricity markets. Future regulating power market and distribution system operator (DSO) market design is covered, with up-to-date case studies and examples to help readers carry out similar projects across the world.

With in-depth analysis, this book describes:

  • the impact of EV charging and discharging on transmission and distribution networks
  • market-driven EV congestion management techniques, for example the day-ahead tariff based congestion management scenario within electric distribution networks 
  • optimal EV charging management with the fleet operator concept and smart charging management
  • EV battery technology, modelling and tests 
  • the use of EVs for balancing power fluctuations from renewable energy sources, looking at power system operation support, including frequency reserve, power regulation and voltage support

An accessible technical book for power engineers and grid/distributed systems operators, this also serves as a reference text for researchers in the area of EVs and power systems. It provides distribution companies with the knowledge they need when facing the challenges introduced by large scale EV deployment, and demonstrates how transmission system operators (TSOs) can develop the existing system service market in order to fully utilize the potential of EV flexibility. With thorough coverage of the technologies for EV integration, this volume is informative for research professors and graduate students in power systems; it will also appeal to EV manufacturers, regulators, EV market professionals, energy providers and traders, mobility providers, EV charging station companies, and policy makers.

Professor Qiuwei Wu, Centre for Electric Technology, Department of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby

Qiuwei Wu is an assistant professor with the Centre for Electric Technology (CET), Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and is currently involved in the research of integration of electric vehicles (EVs), integration of wind power, market driven optimal operation of distribution systems, and the congestion management of distribution systems. He is co-work package leader of the first large scale demonstration project related to EV integration into power systems (WP2 of the EDISON project). Within this he is the main contributor on tasks of EV system architecture design, the potential of using EVs to provide ancillary services, and network impact of EVs on distribution and transmission systems. He has also worked on congestion management of distribution systems with large scale EV integration. Professor Wu gave a tutorial on “smart charging for electric vehicle(EV) fleet operators (FOs) and ICT implementation using IEC 61850” in the ISGT Europe 2011 conference. He contributed a chapter to the large edited book Modeling and Control of Sustainable Power Systems: Towards Smarter and Greener Electric Grids (Springer, 2011).
