Renewable Energy Transmission through Multiple Routes in a Mobile Electrical Grid Conference Paper uri icon


  • Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) technology utilizes the stored energy in electric vehicle batteries to contribute electricity back to the grid. The energy in batteries can move with electric vehicles (EVs). Combining V2G and the mobility of vehicles, EVs can provide a natural energy transmission architecture called mobile electrical grid. The main idea of this paper focuses on multiple energy transmission route in mobile electrical grid from solar energy sources to places as capacity of every energy route is limited. The features of energy route in mobile electrical grid are analyzed and a minimum cost flow algorithm is presented. Simulations using real-world transporting data in Manhattan. Simulations show that this method is efficient. © 2014 IEEE.
