Vehicle to Grid (V2G)


Vehicle to Grid (V2G) architectures allow grid connected vehicles to transfer power from the vehicles to transfer power from the vehicle back to the electric supply infrastructure. The optimization of V2G requires properly configured vehicles and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). UC Riverside has created a microgrid testbed with integrated V2G capabilities. The system utilizes both light duty passengers EVs and larger transit vehicles. Research is focused on system architectures, controls, optimization, energy management, and communications.
