The University of Southampton
UK/China Project on Battery Characterisation and Management

Electric Vehicle public display at NHM

This project is supported by Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in the UK and National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). It has five UK academic partners and three Chinese partners. It will study lithium battery cell development and degradation under Vehicle to Grid (V2G) operation and investigate grid scale energy storage, from a battery perspective upwards and not from a network level downwards.

V2G simulator demo

As a part of the project, a simulator was developed in Southampton University using MATLAB GUI to investigate the impact of integration of electric vehicles (EVs) in the power system, and find out the impact of their Vehicle to Grid (V2G) operation.

News: 'Smart EV' workshop, 21st of April 2016

A workshop entitled ‘Smart Grids, Clever Vehicles: connecting electric vehicles to the Grid’ was organised by Southampton University partners of ‘BaChMan’ consortium. More than 50 delegates from UK and China attended the workshop, which took place on 21st of April 2016 at Grand Harbour hotel Southampton.
