We analyze a detailed set of driving traces for 536 GPS-equipped taxi vehicles and combine them with the features of four different plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) brands that currently dominate the North American market in order to develop a test data set for PHEV-related research in the field of smart grid. Our developed data set is made available to public in [1]. It consists of various information, including but not limited to per-PHEV traces of state-of-charges (SoCs), per-PHEV traces of charging loads at different carefully identified charging stations, per-PHEV information on SoC and charging deadline when the PHEV is parked at a charging station, and some information about the potential of PHEVs for vehicle-to-grid applications.
