Electric Vehicle Charging Simulator for Distribution Grid Feeder Modeling
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The objectives of this agreement are to design and assemble a PEV simulator that can be used to conduct testing of typical distribution grid feeder arrangements. This testing will measure the actual effects of charging vehicle batteries and provide data that can then be transferred to computational models. This agreement will also demonstrate PEV charging that integrates renewable generation, energy storage, and smart charging to show that grid performance, reliability and power quality can be maintained, even with the introduction of a substantial PEV charging load. Stakeholder coordination is provided by a technical advisory group that will meet regularly to discuss the research. There is interest by the other utilities in California, and the information from this research will be made available to them.
