AI-Enabled EV Integration System for Power Management in Smart Grid 

A Virtual Power Plant (VPP) is a network of distributed power generating units, flexible power consumers, and storage systems. A VPP balances the load on the grid by allocating the power generated by different linked units during periods of peak load.
Demand-side energy equipment, such as Electric Vehicles (EVs) and mobile r
obots, can also balance the energy supply-demand when effectively deployed. However, fluctuation of the power generated by the various power units makes the supply power balance a challenging goal. Moreover, the communication security between a VPP aggregator and end facilities is critical and has not been carefully investigated.
In this project, we collaborate with  Aizu Computer Science Laboratories, Inc. and Banpu Japan to develop an AI-enabled, blockchain-based electric vehicle integration system for power management in a smart grid platform based on EV and solar carport. We have developed a  low-power AI-chip and various software tools for EV charge prediction, in which the EV fleet is employed as a consumer and as a supplier of electrical energy.
