Tech Mahindra, a specialist in digital transformation, consulting and business re-engineering will build an Intelligent Electric Vehicle Charging System (IEVCS) designed to help build Ontario’s clean energy future. The project, sponsored by the Ministry of Energy and funded in part through the Ontario Smart Grid Fund initiative, will analyze the effects of electric vehicle charging on transformers by creating a real time transformer monitoring and analytics solution. The key benefit of the solution is the real time monitoring of the transformers and the ability to automatically manage the charging between vehicles to ensure the transformers do not overload as a result of EV charging.
This innovation will use cutting edge techniques in data sciences and embedded systems for the smart grid industry. The highly customizable and scalable platform is set to help utilities reduce their total operating cost.
During the two-year project, Tech Mahindra, along with its partners, will develop and design a reliable distribution system for electric vehicles. This system will manage the load profiles of participant EV’s by queuing their charging to prevent transformer overloading, while keeping participants’ information private.
