Abstract: Coordinated charging of electric vehicles (EVs) represents one of important aspects of future smart grid implementation. The main focus of the present work is on designing a conceptual architecture as a solution for managing (mobile) electric storages utilization. The solution requires holistic approach which takes into consideration all actors in power system management. Requirements and use-cases are specified, structural and behavioral models are developed and presented. The ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) model of the architecture that supports smart charging with dynamic pricing is developed using systems engineering methods. Results are verified by means of system level simulations.

Keywords: Smart charging, electric vehicles, systems engineering, dynamic pricing
