Simulating the Grid to Model the Utilization of Electric Vehicles for Blackout Restoration.
MetadataShow full item record
Power blackouts pose physical, financial, and reputational risks that impact surrounding areas negatively. Electric vehicles can serve as generators, supplying power in blackouts to help make the grid robust and mitigate the damage caused. As load demand continually increases, generation capacity has remained relatively stable. Our project will focus on the possibility of using electric vehicles as a generation source to solve the load growth problem. This will be done by building a unique grid simulation to fulfill a demand for an end to end model. From the model, we can simulate blackouts and explore the possibility of using electric vehicles to aid restoration.
