The electrification of the transportation sector is being regarded as an important measure to reduce the fossil fuel consumption and decrease the emission of greenhouse gases. Despite these benefits, the electricity demanded by Electric Vehicles (EV) will represent a major challenge for the electric power systems. The deployment of EV will change the power demand patterns, causing changes in the grids’ voltage profiles, power flows and energy losses, namely at the distribution level, where EV will be plugged-in for charging. This book is devoted to the integration of EV in distribution grids and it can be divided in three parts: In the first part, a comprehensive framework for EV integration in electrical power systems is presented, providing a holistic perspective of this new reality; The second part is dedicated to the evaluation of the impacts provoked by EV in distribution networks; Finally, appropriate management strategies for EV charging are presented in order to achieve several objectives, like flattening the network load diagrams or minimizing the renewable energy wasted in systems characterized by a large integration of intermittent renewable energy sources (e.g. wind).
