Topic/Title: Discussion on the Aggregation of Electric Vehicles for G2V and V2G Applications
Speaker: Sean C. Mitchem, Principal Analyst, Security and Energy Systems, Southwest Research Institute
Mitchem is an experienced system engineer, computer scientist, energy scientist, and project manager who has a diverse background in software development within many operational domains, including strategic command and control, air traffic control, healthcare systems, nuclear waste management, and smart grid energy systems. Sean is the former lead architect for the VA Pharmacy Reengineering program, and was lead architect and lead developer for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Pharmacy Replacement System. His two primary focus areas at this time are energy storage systems integration for grid-level energy storage and control, and cyber security of the smart grid. Sean's work in the energy sector includes development of Vanadium Redox Flow Battery technology, economic analysis of dynamic line rating technology for high-power transmission lines, and integration of electric vehicles as energy storage devices within a microgrid.
Much has been discussed on the use of Electric Vehicles (EV) to support grid energy requirements, such as peak shaving, demand response, and frequency regulation. The speaker is currently developing aggregation software to control a fleet of electric vehicles on a military installation utilizing the recent changes to the Society of Automotive Engineers J1772 standard for Bi-Directional EV energy flows using DC fast charging. This presentation will discuss some of the use cases for EVs as grid storage devices and present some thoughts and experiences on G2V/V2G as developed through the speaker’s work.
