The fast developments of the electric vehicles impose new challenges for power system management and planning. However, considering the recent EVs’ evolution perspectives, such as vehicle-to-grid technology, EVs also present opportunity for a smart grid in the near future. Within the smart grids context, the integration of EVs can be seen as a flexible load, as well as a generation resource, with the capacity to provide different services to the system, such as the frequency regulation and peak shaving.
Beyond the integration with power systems, the management of EVs can be integrated in a more embracing perspective like smart energy network management and planning, e.g., an integrated planning of traffic network, heating network, and power distribution network. With smart energy network planning technology, it can help in building an efficient and low-carbon society.
In the present Special Issue, we invite original and unpublished submissions concerning the integration of electric vehicles in future power systems allowing the development of the smart grids and smart energy network. Intelligent computing methods developments and applications in electric vehicles fields should be specifically addressed in the papers.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Electric vehicle charging infrastructure planning
- Electric vehicle fleet operation management
- Multi-agents’ application on electric vehicles charging and discharging
- Energy resources management considering electric vehicles
- Stochastic analysis and optimization of electric vehicles management in smart grids
- Use of electric vehicles/battery for frequency regulation, peak shaving and load leveling
- Power quality enhancement with electric vehicles
- Integrated management of electric vehicles considering the power grid and other critical infrastructures in a smart energy network context
- Electric vehicle driving pattern analysis and prediction
- Intelligent methods for electric motor fault detection
- Impact of communication delay on system integration of electric vehicles within a smart grid context
