    Abstract

    A combination of a generation planning model and a stochastic unit commitment model was used to analyze the impact of electric vehicles on power system balancing costs from the perspective of wind power. When smart charging and discharging was available, wind power balancing costs decreased by approx. 30% assuming that half of the personal vehicle fleet consisted of EVs.
