S4V2G: Services for Electriv Vehicles to SmartGrid connection
Objectives: Active rule of the driver smartphone for the optimization of the energy distribution with smart interaction between driver-EV-EVSE and smart grid to reduce the impact of EV recharge on power grid. Additional services (smatphone app): reservation, GPS navigation, Automatic payment (NFC ), Real time information on battery charge and recharge status, …
Many different types of connections can be established between driver, vehicle and infrastructure for the control, management and billing of the recharge. We propose the use of a smart phone with Bluetooth connection and Near Field Communication (NFC).
The user, through the smart phone, performs a secure authentication of the driver itself with charging station, enabling the billing process. The user defines the amount of charge required and the recharging speed on the basis of the actual charge status of the battery, of the time the user have at disposal, of the cost that depends on the charging station, the charging power required, the energy at disposal of the power grid company in that moment.
