Impact Analysis of Distribution Grid Embedded Systems
The project investigated the modeling of the local distribution utility grid for a pilot region in Ankara, Turkey, and integrating on-board charging systems to the grid to understand the distribution level impacts. The Baskent DisCo (the biggest DisCo in Turkey) provided the field data. BMW i3 EV was tested for grid charging power quality and daily driving energy need. The project also involved installation of two charging stations at Hacettepe University campus to develop communication systems between Baskent DisCo and charging station servers. The project outputs provided solutions of smart charging management of EVs. The project took place in 2015-2016 at Hacettepe University Beytepe Campus.
