On the participation of charging point operators to the frequency regulation service using plug-in electric vehicles and 5G communications

  • 1. Sapienza University of Rome - Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering "Antonio Ruberti"


This work deals with the problem of enabling plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) to the provisioning of ancillary services to the grid, for frequency regulation purposes. The paper presents and discusses a reference scenario for such a use case, describing the systems and actors involved. A system architecture for enabling the use case is proposed, detailing the relevant system components, technologies, and control algorithms. The paper also discusses the issue of the coexistence of the PEV-based frequency regulation services with PEV smart charging. Finally, it is discussed the crucial role that 5G technologies could play for making actually feasible the implementation of the proposed scheme for PEV-based frequency regulation service provisioning.
