Scenario-Based Preferences in Development of Advanced Mobile Grid Services and a Bidirectional Charger Network

A coordinated network of bidirectional chargers can be useful to improve grid stability and resilience and provide revenues to owner/operators of fleets of electric vehicles. This paper quantifies the resilience of a portfolio of vehicle-to-grid technology investments and milestones when it is subjected to a variety of emergent and future conditions that involve technology, environment, market prices, regulations, organizations, and the like. The technical approach consists of three layers, starting from wide national strategic goals and ending with the specific and targeted needs of an individual initiative. Investigated in this analysis are 5 criteria, 4 scenarios, 15 emergent conditions, and 35 initiatives . The results suggest that the most robust and crucial initiative is x₃, Regional resource planning, and the most disruptive scenario is s₂, Private industry support. The paper has a context in the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge (SEBoK) (BKCASE Editorial Board 2017) as a systems engineering management methodology that serves to elicit and translate the interests, needs, and knowledge of multiple stakeholders into models of preferences that have a role in the monitoring of emergent and future conditions.
