Abstract

The paper describes the co-simulation platform that integrates a mobility simulator adapted to represent e-mobility with a dynamic simulator of the power distribution network and with an UMTS communication network simulator. The platform appears useful in order to assess the effects of the transients caused by the concurrent charging of a large number of electric vehicles to the operating conditions of the power network. Moreover, the platform supports the development and performance test of specific countermeasures against power components overload, voltage variations and unbalances.
