Abstract: This research paper is based on a project which is a prototype on a smaller level of integrating vehicle-to-grid technology at the residential and commercial levels which can be expanded in future with the help of bi-directional AC-DC power converters and Control systems. Vehicle-to-Grid is a technology that allows energy to be supplied back to the power grid from the battery of an electric car for fulfilling the excess demand on the grid. It is depicted in the prototype with the help of TP charging module and embedded system i.e. Arduino to manage the ever-increasing energy demand from the grid. With the increasing environmental problems, modern automobile technology is innovating in the field of Electric Vehicles (EV) with lesser pollution and better efficiency. This has attracted a lot of attention, but the major hindrance faced is the availability of energy required to maintain the grid is resonance. We can overcome this by vehicle-to-grid technology in smart parking systems. When the EV is parked, energy may be drawn out or supplied to the EV through the grid depending upon the requirements of the grid and the vehicle’s battery. The implementation of this technology enables the stored energy in the electric vehicle to be transferred to the power grid and vice-versa..
