Presentation Summary

  • When the electric vehicles replace fuel vehicles in the near future, inevitably power grids will experience burden to charge tens and thousands of EVs.
  • Aggregate EV charging load may show self-similarity, and thus make load forecasting via traditional methods such as Markov-Chains and auto regression inapplicable.
  • Intelligent EV charging scheduler and admission control mechanisms are needed to lower probability of power outage, while satisfying QoS requirements of the charging EVs.
