SAN ANTONIO: SwRI Deploys Novel VehicleGrid Aggregation System | Business Wire | Rock Hill Herald Online

SAN ANTONIO — Southwest Research Institute (SwRI)has deployed the first electric vehicle (EV) aggregation system using the new Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) standard for bidirectional power using direct current (DC) fast charging. The system, part of the Smart Power Infrastructure Demonstration for Energy Reliability and Security (SPIDERS) Phase II program, is controlling five DC fast-charge stations at the Fort Carson Army Base in Colorado Springs, Colo. In August, the system passed integration and acceptance testing, successfully aggregating electric vehicles from two vehicle manufacturers equipped with SAE-compliant bidirectional charging interfaces.

“The SwRI aggregation system manages a fleet of electric vehicles, controlling both vehicle charging and microgrid needs and supporting vehicle schedules as well as supplementing the base’s energy supply,” said Sean Mitchem, project manager and a principal analyst in SwRI’s Automation and Data Systems Division.

“SPIDERS is pioneering a new way of managing energy,” said Yaxi Liu, a research analyst also in the Automation and Data Systems Division. “The batteries in electric vehicles are used as cushions against fluctuations in the grid, creating more stability and resiliency while improving its ability to accommodate renewable energy. This helps satisfy goals of reducing dependence on fossil fuels and the impact of emissions.”
