The Grid 4 Vehicles project (G4V) has analyzed the effects of a mass integration of electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (EV and PHEV) into some distribution grids in Europe. A consortium consisting of six European research institutions and six European utilities has developed a methodology to investigate the effects of EV and PHEV in distribution grids and has proposed different options for intelligent and “grid-friendly” EV charging. This paper introduces the algorithms used for grid calculation, describes intelligent charging methodologies and demonstrates the most significant results of these calculations.
