The integration of electric vehicles into distribution networks will require intelligent systems for managing the charging points and the impact on the grid. Electric vehicles represent an opportunity to manage the power demand allowing shifting the electric load to off-peak periods and to store the excess of generation from renewable generators. In addition, the electric vehicles could be used to improve the reliability and power quality if vehicle to grid (V2G) is deployed. The Vehicle to Microgrid (V2M), an Endesa Novare Award, consists on evaluating the impact of electric vehicles into the network and proposing solutions to deal with the challenges that electric vehicles introduce. The results will be validated in a demonstration plant that is a microgrid placed at IREC.
