  journal={IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid},
Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) has been proposed as a way to increase the adoption rate of electric vehicles (EVs). Unidirectional V2G is especially attractive because it requires little if any additional infrastructure other than communication between the EV and an aggregator. The aggregator in turn combines the capacity of many EVs to bid into energy markets. In this work an algorithm for unidirectional regulation is developed for use by an aggregator. Several smart charging algorithms are used to set… 
Optimal charging strategies for unidirectional vehicle-to-grid using fuzzy uncertainties

Optimal Scheduling of Vehicle-to-Grid Energy and Ancillary Services
A V2G algorithm is developed to optimize energy and ancillary services scheduling that maximizes profits to the aggregator while providing additional system flexibility and peak load shaving to the utility and low costs of EV charging to the customer.
Optimal Combined Bidding of Vehicle-to-Grid Ancillary Services
In this work an optimal combined bidding formulation for regulation and spinning reserves is developed to be used by aggregators, which takes into account unplanned departures by EV owners during contract periods and compensates accordingly.
