Report: Assessment of FCAS Capabilities of a V2G Capable EV Charger - A Case Study (PDF 2MB)
This report is about actual data coming from the bi-directional charger and exploration of FCAS revenue in the grid.
V2G is a promising technology that can provide frequency control ancillary service (FCAS) in Australian National Energy Market. However, the capabilities of V2G technology to deliver FCAS services are still unproven at technical level. This report aims to be a “first look” at the technical capabilities of the V2G technology for delivering FCAS services. The experimental tests are undertaken on a “Wallbox Quasar” charger using the DER lab grid simulator facility at the Australian National University (ANU). This report presents a series of experimental test results on the charger’s technical capabilities to deliver FCAS services. These tests were undertaken against both the AS4777.2:2020 and UK G99 standards
