Article
Full-text available
The integration of photovoltaic (PV) and electric vehicle (EV) charging in residential buildings has increased in recent years. At high latitudes, both pose new challenges to the residential power systems due to the negative correlation between household load and PV power production and the increase in household peak load by EV charging. EV smart c...
Article
Photovoltaics (PV) and electric vehicles (EVs) are two emerging technologies often considered as cornerstones in the energy and transportation systems of future sustainable cities. They both have to be integrated into the power systems and be operated together with already existing loads and generators and, often, into buildings, where they potenti...
Article
Full-text available
Photovoltaic (PV) systems and electric vehicles (EVs) integrated in local distribution systems are considered to be two of the keys to a sustainable future built environment. However, large-scale integration of PV generation and EV charging loads poses technical challenges for the distribution grid. Each grid has a specific hosting capacity limitin...
Article
Full-text available
The integration of photovoltaic (PV) systems and electric vehicles (EVs) in the built environment, including at workplaces, has increased significantly in the recent decade and has posed new technical challenges for the power system, such as increased peak loads and component overloading. Several studies show that improved matching between PV gener...

The world faces the threat of an energy crisis that is exacerbated by the dominance of fossil energy sources that negatively impact the sustainability of the earth's ecosystem. Currently, efforts to increase the supply of renewable energy have become a global agenda, including using solar energy which is one of the rapidly developing clean energies...
Article
The use of electric vehicles (EVs) has been on the rise during the past decade, and the number is expected to rapidly increase in the future. At aggregated level, the large EV charging loads, if not well regulated, will cause great stress on the existing grid infrastructures. On the other hand, considered as a resource-efficient and cost-effective...
Article
Full-text available
Several studies have presented electric vehicle smart charging schemes to increase the temporal matching between photovoltaic generation and electric vehicle charging, including a smart charging scheme with an objective to minimize the net-load variance. This method has proved, through simulations, that the self consumption could be increased, but...
Thesis
Full-text available
The world is now in a transition towards a more sustainable future. Actions to reduce the green-house gases (GHG) emissions have been promoted and implemented globally, including switching to electric vehicles (EVs) and renewable energy technologies, such as solar photovoltaics (PV). This has led to a massive increase of EVs and PV adoption worldwi...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents an electric vehicle (EV) smart charging scheme at residential buildings based on installed photovoltaic (PV) output and household electricity consumption. The proposed EV charging scheme is designed to determine the optimal EV charging schedules for the purpose of minimizing the load-variance or flattening the load profile. When...
Conference Paper
Electric vehicles (EVs) and photovoltaics (PV) are swiftly being adopted to improve sustainability in both the transportation and the electricity sectors. Residential buildings might benefit from self-consuming the locally produced PV electricity to charge the EVs of the residents. However, the temporal mismatch between midday solar power productio...
Conference Paper
This paper evaluates the impacts of electric vehicles' (EVs') smart charging algorithms on reducing the peak of the total load of households. Two smart charging schemes are proposed. The first scheme-postponed charging-is defined as reducing the charging power if the total load exceeds the fuse size, thereby sometimes postponing the charging. The s...

Project
Solar charge 2020 is a project where the combined use of electric vehicles and Photovoltaic power creates a potential to greatly reduce CO2 emissions, impacting both grid and transport sectors. A key feature of the project is the coupling of intermittent and decentralised solar production to storage and consumption by Electric Vehicles – EVs. This can be achieved by using a novel business model for solar charging based on smart meters connecting solar power producers and consumers via a Solar Bank.
