Abstract

This chapter discusses the problem of managing the charging process of a large fleet of electric vehicles (EVs). First, the attention will be focused on the potential limitations in the quality of service coming from the management of EVs at conventional households, according to traditional fixed-rate charging strategies. Then, smart variable-rate energy management strategies will be introduced. As shown by different analyses, these smart strategies can allow a significant improvement in the quality of service, becoming an important driver to move from the current distribution grid to ...
