Recent years have witnessed an increasing deployment of Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs), mainly in the urban scenario. This need has been largely triggered by a worldwide consensus for moving towards cleaner and greener transportation options in the wake of today's global environmental crisis. Large scale penetration of PEVs in the transportation sector is a major possibility in the coming days, owing to the advancements being made in hardware technology that is bringing down manufacturing costs of PEVs and making them economically feasible to the average urban user. In such a case, the electricity distribution grid suffers from the possibility of facing congestion related issues when large fleets of PEVs begin to draw power for their plying needs. Power engineers must be able to develop charging protocols that are able to relieve the distribution grid of major congestion related stresses and also ensure that the PEVs are charged to the satisfaction of the owners. This need has led to a worldwide thrust in developing smart charging protocols within the realm of the smart distribution grid.
