Power Management for a Safe and Robust Vehicle-Grid Solution
Military bases provide power to a wide variety of electrical loads including life saving equipment and advanced communication systems. During periods of increased power demand, these bases can be significantly underpowered and vehicles should be available to supplement power. Making use of exported vehicle power will benefit the Army by reducing need for generators, which will have positive impact on logistics, saving time and money. Conclusion: exported vehicle power is important to the U.S. Military. Likewise, military vehicles contain subsystems including advanced surveillance equipment and defense weaponry. These vehicle subsystems should be functional without running the vehicle or using the vehicles batteries. Additionally, as vehicles advance towards plug-in electric configurations, they will need to recharge from the grid. Making use of imported power will reduce vehicle fuel consumption, yet still provide the protection of vehicle-based defense systems. Conclusion: imported vehicle power is important to the U.S. Military. Vehicle power export / import solution will provide our soldiers with robust power options. Vehicle-grid interaction must occur safely, without impacting the primary vehicle mission. Power management, control, and integration within the vehicle and with the microgrid are keys to enabling robust and safe vehicle-grid interaction.
