  1. 1. Development of a Smart Charging Algorithm for Electric Vehicles at Home

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskaper

    Author : Rebecca Segelsjö Duvernoy; Johanna Lundblad; [2019]
    Keywords : smart charging; electric Vehicle; photovoltaic; household load; self-consumption;

    Abstract : The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to develop a smart charging algorithm for electric vehicles (EVs) and examine the potential of the smart charging scheme, compared to uncontrolled charging scheme at residential houses with an installed photovoltaic (PV) system. The thesis examines if smart charging can increase the photovoltaic self-consumption and self-sufficiency of houses. READ MORE
