This work demonstrates a smart charging system of electric vehicle using information technology and cloud computing. xEVs (electric plugin hybrid, battery electric vehicles) charging management system will be very helpful for the varying charging infrastructure demands, namely perspectives from automakers, electricity providers, vehicle owners, and charging service providers. Through dedicated interface, the developed system will provide real-time information to xEV users regarding nearest charging station with minimum queuing delay and with minimum charging cost through a secured online accessing mechanism for accessing state of charge (SOC) of the xEV’s battery being charged. The system not only provide an execution framework for the xEV users but also provide an optimal energy trading solution to all entities involved in a smart charging infrastructure such as charging station, aggregators, smart grid. The work also explains the cloud-enabled bidding strategies that look for day-ahead and term-ahead markets. The aggregators will use the smart decisions undertaken by cloud analytics to execute their bidding strategies in way to maximize the profit. Further, the work also assesses the possible cybersecurity aspects of such architectures along with providing possible solutions.
