The technological advancement in the field of energy and proposition of a Smart Grid has paved the way for sophisticated information systems with network management capabilities. Unlike the legacy systems, today we need a two-way communication model for the electricity distribution network that can, not only communicate with the devices but interact with sensors and actuators. This task becomes more daunting when the devices are mobile. For this purpose we chose to design a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) management information base (MIB) for a Plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) that utilizes charge-level sensors to intelligently bill electricity usage per subscriber independent of the location of the charging. This paper proposes the design of a sensor information exchange that would identify and collect data from a PEV at a charging station. The proposed design delivers a scalable and simple network management methodology for these chargeable vehicles.
