Abstract: The frequent occurrence of natural disasters is relating to the environmental issues under the influence of global warming. Occasionally blackouts are caused by natural disasters, therefore, we should study how to secure power sources supplies at the time of the power system loss in the event of disaster. On the other hand, in the automotive industry, Electric Vehicles (EV) are introduced into the market for reducing CO2 which is one of the factors of global warming. In addition, EV can give power through an inverter from the batteries. The aim of this research is to develop the navigating system for energy delivery based on Geographic Information System (GIS) utilizing electric vehicles as a "moving batteries" to back-up the power distribution system. Then, it is important to grasp how much electric energy in EV’s battery is available after running to the refugee locations. In this paper the approximation of power consumption for EV driving considering geographic information such as elevation and distance has been focused on. The results are promising as an additional efforts to provide emergency plans to power system in the up normal situations.

Keywords: GIS, EV, power system restoration battery storage
