Report: Case Study Grid Performance of a V2G Capable EV Charger (PDF 3MB)
This report looks at the capability of vehicle to grid technologies to provide services to the electricity grid. It presents the results of tests undertaken in the Australian National University DER lab grid simulator facility.
V2G, as described is a promising source of grid services. But as yet, the capability of V2G to provide this service at a technical level is unproven. This report aims to be a “first look” at this capability. It presents the results of a series of tests undertaken in the Australian National University (ANU) DER lab grid simulator facility. These tests were undertaken on a “Wallbox Quasar” charger between 10/2021 and 03/2022.
This suite of tests was undertaken as part of the Realising Electric Vehicle-to-Grid Services (REVS) project. This project tests V2G’s capability to provide contingency frequency control ancillary services (FCAS) using a 51-vehicle fleet of EVs deployed across the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).
