Grid-Integrated Vehicles (GIVs) are plug-in Electric Drive Vehicles (EDVs) with power-management and other controls that allow them to respond to external commands sent by power-grid operators, or their affiliates, when parked and plugged-in to the grid. At a bare minimum, such GIVs should respond to demand-management commands or pricing signals to delay,(More)
—At the University of Delaware, we are providing ancillary services by controlling the bidirectional power transfer between 15 EVs and the grid. To control this power transfer, a set of algorithms, models and interactions is used, called a " GIV (Grid Integrated Vehicle) mechanism ". In literature, many GIV mechanisms are proposed. However, because these(More)
