Adoption of Electric Vehicles into Utility Operational Landscape: A Use Case for Vehicle to Grid (V2G) in Grid Management Systems using IEEE 2030.5


Series: EVs, Smart Cities and DERMS

Time: 10:30 AM – 11:15 AM CT

The adoption of Electric Vehicles is accelerating due to economic, environment and market drivers. If passively managed, EV charging load can present unique challenges to electric power utilities. At the same time, capabilities for monitoring and control of EV charging load/generation are starting to reach maturity, and EVs can soon be treated as dispatchable resources. IEEE 2030.5, in particular, is gaining widespread adoption and is uniquely suited to interconnecting DER and aggregators to utility systems. EVs now present a wide range of opportunities for grid operators. In this presentation, Deepal and Jesse will share how Electric Vehicles, specifically those with Vehicle to Grid (V2G) capabilities, are integrated into the utility Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) and Grid Operations utilizing the IEEE 2030.5 protocol-based integration.col-based integration.

Lessons Learned:

  • Vehicle to Grid (V2G) capabilities, particularly for electric buses, are closer to reality than you may think and can be used as a generation resources for suppling other loads.
  • EV charging stations, advanced inverters and other grid edge technologies present unique opportunities to utilities for electrical supply/demand management.
  • The IEEE 2030.5 protocol is gaining widespread adoption and is uniquely suited to integrating DER, including EV, to utility systems.
  • Actively managing DER requires tackling challenges related to modeling, communications, cyber security, registration and operations workflows.
