V2G Infrastructure

The V2G concept was coined by Willet Kempton in the year 1993. A sufficiently large number of aggregated EVs in a Charging Station (CS) could provide several important services to the grid such as:

  • Voltage regulation,
  • Peak power shaving,
  • Spinning reserve, and
  • Other ancillary services

The grid can be supported with the Electric Vehicle (EV) by storing the energy during off-peak hours and supply back when the grid demands. This can be achieved with the EV because 96% of the time, EV is idle.
