IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications
The paper entitled “An Integrated DC Microgrid Solution for Electric Vehicle Fleet Management” has been published in the IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications journal!
In this paper, the structure of a modular electric vehicle supply infrastructure is proposed. It is based on the integration of photovoltaic rooftops, energy storage and electric vehicle stations in a dc microgrid, enabling coordination and control as well as the functions of bidirectional charging and the possibility to provide grid services at connection point. The main features of the technical demonstrator are described, along with the targeted innovations for system manager and final user, and the possible control functions involving operation planning, real-time control, and ancillary service market inclusion.
