This paper proposes a charging/discharging process for electric vehicles according to mode 4, specifically based on the CHAdeMO protocol. These initiatives will enable acceptably fast charging of EVs. The proposal has been designed and implemented within the Endesa Novare Vehicle to Microgrid project. As a first stage of the project, the charge/discharge process has been emulated before it will be developed in a real device. The emulation consists of two main parts: (i) an electric vehicle and its battery management system emulated by a microcontroller, and (ii) a charging/discharging device emulated by a computer application. Both parts communicate via CAN bus as it is done in existing protocols. The proposed control flow for charging and discharging and the results of the emulation are presented. Moreover, in order to be able to manage charge and discharge processes according to power network operator, a data model for both electrical vehicle and charging/discharging device according to standard IEC 61850-7-420 is also proposed.
