—Large-scale deployment of electric vehicles (EVs) is anticipated in the foreseeable future. Heavy intermittent charging load of EVs will create bottlenecks in supplying capacity and expose power system to severe security risks. In this paper, we propose an intelligent method to control EV charging loads in response to time-of-use (TOU) price in a regulated(More)
There is an increasingly hot debate on whether the replacement of conventional vehicles (CVs) by electric vehicles (EVs) should be delayed or accelerated since EVs require higher cost and cause more pollution than CVs in the manufacturing process. Here we reveal two hidden benefits of EVs for addressing climate change to support the imperative acceleration(More)
With the ongoing large-scale implementation of electric vehicles (EVs), the exploration of a more flexible approach to maintain fair interaction between EVs and the power grid is urgently required. This paper presents an aggregator-based interactive charging management scheme adopting interruptible load (IL) pricing, in which the EV aggregator will respond(More)
Large scale integration of electric vehicles (EVs) provides new ideas for power system stability and control. Connected to power grid, EVs can be taken as distributed energy storage and thus cooperate with traditional automatic generation control (AGC) units to help stabilize the system frequency and achieve energy saving. On the basis of previous(More)
