Real-time simulation of EV grid integration with internet-inspired charging control
Kisacikoglu, Mithat C.
Analyzing realistic EV-grid integration (EVGI) with available simulation tools is cumbersome due to the software overhead associated with offline simulation. Alternatively, real-time hardware platforms are becoming convenient means for testing and evaluating systems before field implementation. This study presents a digital implementation of an EVGI model in real-time on a multi-core processor based simulation platform. Furthermore, an Interned-inspired EV charging control algorithm is proposed in a decentralized fashion to prevent congestion related problems in a residential distribution grid. The impact of the proposed EV charging control on the IEEE 37-node test system is evaluated through the real-time analysis. The developed controller results show promise for extension to any utility-interfaced power electronics system. Real-time simulation implementation requirements and challenges in the context of EVGI are also discussed.
