Prospects of optimized distributed generation and electric vehicle charging in micro grids

Schäuble, Johannes; Jochem, Patrick; Fichtner, Wolf ORCID iD icon


The design of a likewise sustainable, climate-friendly, safe, and efficient energy supply presents both current and future society with great challenges. In order to meet this requirement, the energy sector, driven by political, economical, and social decisions, is changing continuously. This evolution thereby affects all areas of energy supply, namely provision, transport, distribution and demand. Induced by expansion of decentralized electricity generation by renewable energy sources (RES), use of storage, new load characteristics such as electric vehicles (EVs) (Flath et al. 2013), and market liberalization (Markard and Truffer 2006), as well as increased involvement of society on climate protection and market participation (Clastres 2011), the growing number and heterogeneity of actors and elements particularly increase the complexity of the electricity sector. Apart from the implied problems, these developments offer great potential within a new design of a future power supply: More and more consumers will generate electricity by using combined heat and power (CHP) and photovoltaic (PV) systems, and will even apply either a stationary or mobile storage (EV) (IEA 2012; Flath et al. ... mehr
