  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. Improving energy security for individual households during outages : A simulation study for households in Sweden

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik

    Author : Amelie Bennich; [2019]
    Keywords : Off-grid; Energy security; Solar power; Energy storage; Outage;

    Abstract : In this study, it was investigated how individual households could manage security of supply during an outage by installing a local energy system that could operate independently from the electricity grid. By installing local renewable off-grid energy systems, households could guarantee an uninterrupted supply of energy even during an outage on the electricity grid, while also increasing their energy autonomy during normal circumstances.
