This paper discusses the dynamic modelling of a solar energy system with vehicle to home (V2H) option for Newfoundland condition. A location was chosen (13 Polina Road) in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. Using BEopt, Homer and MATLAB software, an optimized system was designed for the chosen site to satisfy the house’s energy demand. Furthermore, the concept of V2H is also implemented with aid of smart current sensors installed in the house. When the power provided by the PV panel and the stored energy in the inhouse battery is less than the load’s energy demand, the Nissan Leaf’s battery used to supply home loads in V2H operation mode. The system operates based on the information generated by the sensors. Detailed system dynamic modelling is also presented along with the simulation results. Eight system control modes are proposed and simulated.

The dynamic modelling of a solar energy system with vehicle to home (V2H) and vehicle to grid (V2G) options for Newfoundland conditions is discussed in this paper. A site (13 Polina Road) was chosen in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. An optimized system was built for the chosen site using BEopt, Homer, and MATLAB software’s to meet the house's energy demand. Furthermore, smart current sensors installed in the house are used to incorporate the V2H and V2G concepts. The Nissan Leaf's battery is used to supply household loads in V2H operation mode when the power supplied by the PV panel and the storage energy in the inhouse battery is less than the load's energy demand. In V2G mode, the vehicle is only linked to grid. Along with the simulation results, detailed system dynamic modelling is also presented. There are nine different system control modes that are proposed and simulated.
