The increasing usage of electric vehicles (EVs) motivates the development of decentralized control strategies for EV charging stations. We present a predictive control scheme that can mitigate the stress on the distribution grids as well as increase photovoltaic (PV) self-consumption while catering for forecast uncertainties. Here, we demonstrate the performance of our approach through a simulation and a field test within a residential context. Results suggest a significant increase in PV self-consumption with our novel dynamic approach compared to a previously static algorithm deployed in the same field environment.
