Electric vehicles (EVs) are developing remarkably fast these years which makes the technology of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) easier to implement. Peak load shifting (PLS) is an important part of V2G service. A model of EVs’ capacity in V2G service is proposed for the research on PLS in this paper. The capacity is valued in accordance with three types of situations. Based on the model, three different scenarios are suggested in order to evaluate the capacity with MATLAB. The evaluation results indicate that EVs can provide potential energy to participate in PLS. Then, the principle of PLS with EVs is researched through the analysis of the relationship between their power and capacity. The performance of EVs in PLS is also simulated. The comparison of two simulation results shows that EVs can fulfill the request of PLS without intensely lowering their capacity level.
