Communication Networking Schemes for Wide Area Electric Vehicle Energy Service Network


Electric vehicles (EVs) are an emerging type of mobile intelligent power consumption devices in Smart Grid as new green transport tools. In order to provide a powerful automation and intelligence support for wide area electric vehicles energy service network, we analyze the network infrastructure and communications demands of various terminals, devices and monitoring systems distributed in wide area electric vehicle energy service network. According to interactive user services scenarios and energy operations intelligent monitoring, we propose multimode communication integration architecture for wide area electric vehicle energy service network by means of the fusion of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Then, we design different networking schemes in access networks and backbone transmission networks meeting multi-scene and multi-operation interaction requirements. The networking schemes will provide efficient technical support to implement intelligent, cross-regional, interactive energy services for electric vehicle users.
