Book Description

The leading countries around the globe, including Australia, have taken serious steps to decarbonize their energy and transportation sectors as part of their obligations for a suitable future with less emission and a better environment. The decarbonization plans in different countries have resulted in changes such as increases in the penetration level of renewable energy sources and introducing electric vehicles as a target for future transportation systems. This is the point where mobility meets electricity and brings new challenges and opportunities, especially in the integration with modern power systems. The main impact would be on the demand-side and the distribution network. These impacts would be also reflected in the operation, control, security, and stability of transmission systems. This creates a new grid architecture characterized by a growing variability and uncertainties. Moreover, the growth in the share of renewable energy in the total energy market is one of the major causes of the increasing fluctuations in the balance between generation and consumption in the whole system. Therefore, the key challenge lies in developing new concepts to ensure the effective integration of distributed energy resources and electric transportation systems, including EVs, into existing and future market structures.

Electric Transportation Systems in Smart Power Grids address how these issues—EVs, E-buses, and other smart appliances on the demand side—can be aggregated to form virtual power plants, which are considered an efficient solution to provide operational flexibility to the grid. The book also discusses how EV-based virtual power plants can also provide myriad services for distribution system operators, transmission system operators, and even local prosumers within the energy community.


  • Describes the services required to power systems from EVs and electric transportation sector
  • Covers frequency control in modern power systems using aggregated EVs
  • Discusses the integration and interaction between EVs and Smart grids
  • Introduces electric vehicle aggregation methods for supporting power systems
  • Highlights flexibility provided from electric transportation system to smart energy sector
  • Discusses the high penetration level of renewable energy sources and EVs
