Abstract

Electric Vehicles are anticipated to have a considerable percentage of the vehicle market sales in the forthcoming years. The additional energy requirements for charging their batteries may affect the network operation, in terms of stability and reliability, especially when these are synchronized with the system peak demand. This issue will present power system operators with the challenge to efficiently integrate Electric Vehicles into power systems by exploiting their ability to behave as manageable loads. The Multi-Agent System technology has been proven a promising way to manage distributed energy resources in electrical networks. A multi-agent system approach to manage the charging of the Electric Vehicle batteries is described. The types of agents required to satisfy the technical operation and the market participation of Microgrids with Electric Vehicles are provided.
