The carpeDIEM project recently finished building three intelligent charge stations for electrical vehicles. In a decentralized architecture and based on a multi-agent system, these charge stations coordinate charging of connected electrical vehicles based on methods and algorithms developed at SDU Mechatronics. They serve as integral components in the distributed intelligent energy management system (DIEMS) that is to be developed in the carpeDIEM project. The charge stations are able to coordinate charging of electrical vehicles such that grid peak loads are prevented and/or connected cars are charged with respect to availability of local energy resources (such as e.g. PV panels).
