Charging electric vehicles (EVs) from smart microgrids fueled by renewable energy resources is becoming a popular green approach. Although some works have been done about renewable energy sources and EVs in smart microgrids, the stochastic characteristics and the dynamic interplay between these two important green solutions should be carefully considered. Furthermore, one of the important performance metrics, service availability for EVs, is largely ignored in the existing works. In this paper, we study the charging policies in smart microgrids with EVs and renewable energy sources. We analyze service availability under different charging policies. Numerical results are presented to show the performance of different charging policies.
