  journal={International Journal of Automotive Technology},
A smart charge scheduling model is presented for potential (1) vehicle-to-grid (V2G) enabled battery electric vehicle (BEV) owners who are willing to participate in the grid ancillary services, and (2) grid operators. Unlike most V2G implementations, which are considered from the perspective of power grid systems, this model includes a communication network architecture for connecting system components that supports both BEV owners and grid operators to efficiently monitor and manage the… 
An Optimal Charging and Discharging Schedule to Maximize Revenue for Electrical Vehicle
A linear programming model is presented that produces an optimized charging-discharging schedule for EV owners while accommodating constraints in travel requirement, battery maintenance and degradation cost, and shows 250% improvement in individual revenue gain for short distance traveller who follows the optimized schedule.
Economic feasibility analysis of vehicle-to-grid service from an EV owner's perspective in the german electricity market
