Smart Vehicle to Grid Interface

Concept and Project Objectives:

In a context of an obliged continuous optimisation of the energy consumption rates in developed societies, embedded systems and solutions can perform a significant role in the transition process towards a Sustainable Urban Life concept in European countries.

One of the main and most promising technological areas that are expected to be able to contribute in a most relevant way to that overall target is the one constituted by the electric vehicles.

In order to be able to reach the mentioned objective, the following specific objectives have been defined:

  • Develop a V2G system made up of a smart grid of charging stations, where vehicles are allowed to carry out the charging/ discharging operations.
  • Define control systems architecture.
  • Develop technical communication and information processing between EV and charging stations.
  • Define specification of communication standards and interfaces/information processing standards.
  • Ensure security in charging stations and identification.
  • Test and validate the developed technology and systems.
  • Disseminate project results and ensure scalability and compatibility.
