Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the advent of smart grid, vehicle-to-grid (V2G) enables electric vehicles to play a new role – interaction with the power grid by delivering electricity to the grid or by controlling the charging rate. This special issue entitled “Vehicle-to-Grid” invites articles that address the state-of-the-art technologies and new developments for V2G, including but not limited to system configuration and integration of gridable vehicles, energy storage and management systems, charging infrastructure and chargers, sensor networks and smart metering, communication and control systems, information and billing systems, V2G interfaces and applications, as well as demonstration projects and case studies. Articles which deal with the latest hot topics for V2G are particularly encouraged such as V2G frameworks, vehicle-to-home interfaces, bidirectional power inverters, future battery development, dynamic load leveling, control algorithms, communication protocols, and energy arbitrage. As the impact of V2G on our daily lives is important, articles which deal with the relationships between the V2G and the energy security issues, environmental impacts and economic benefits would be of particular interest.
