Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Based on conventional car driving patterns, it has been recognized that typically a car remains stationary for 95% of the time, only being driven on the road for the remaining 5% of that time on average. This gives the system operator opportunities to utilize future EV charging as system reserve demand in order to provide system control, such as frequency response. In this paper, a next generation power system with high penetration of renewables represents the future power grid in Great Britain. Three charging schemes for EVs are presented in order to illustrate their potential as responsive demand for power system control. A case study was undertaken for the year 2020. System frequency stability tests have been performed with shedding EV fleet charging.
