There are many approaches to integrate electric vehicles into smart grid architectures by optimizing their charging- and feeding periods. Most approaches, however, were never applied in reality since every field-test requires an existing and expensive infrastructure. In this paper we compare the performance of four different scheduling algorithms. As opposed to other works we only present algorithms that were used in reality. The test platform that was used for this experiment is the smart grid at the Europäisches Energieforum.
