Deploying Energy Routers in an Energy Internet Based on Electric Vehicles

An energy internet is a system that enables energy sharing in a distribution system such as the Internet. It has been attracting a lot attention from both academia and industry. The main purpose of this paper is to develop a model of an electric vehicle (EV) energy network to transmit, distribute, and store energy by EVs from renewable energy sources to places that need the energy. The authors describe the EV energy internet in detail and then formulate an optimization problem to place charging stations in an EV energy internet. The authors develop two solutions: one using a greedy heuristic and another based on diffusion. Simulation results using real-world data show that the greedy heuristic requires less charging stations, whereas the diffusion-based algorithm incurs less energy transmission loss.
