Fast Bidirectional Electrical Vehicle Chargers
Increase in electric vehicle mobility has encouraged the growth of vehicle to grid technology. Vehicle to grid technology allows bidirectional power flow between the battery of electric vehicle and the power grid. In this project, a new control strategy for bidirectional battery charger is proposed. The proposed control strategy can charge and discharge an electric vehicle battery in fast mode. Also, topologies of the converter including renewable energies will be included to obtain very fast chargers
Grid supporting using virtual power plants based on aggregated local networks
A virtual power plant (VPP) is a cloud-based distributed power plant that aggregates the capacities of heterogeneous Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) for the purposes of enhancing ower generation, as well as trading or selling power on the open market. The main aim of this project is to use the aggregated capabilities of the a lot of systems to participate in the grid supporting from the point of view of voltage and frequency.
