Electric vehicles (EVs) are the connecting point of the transportation and electricity sectors and are an important milestone towards the decarbonization goal. Smart charging of EVs is considered a key enabler for the broad deployment of EVs. Acting as flexible demand, smart charging releases stress on the grid infrastructure and enables potential flexibility to the renewable energy sources (RES), thereby enhancing the power system. This paper presents results from experimental tests with two smart charger prototypes developed within the ACDC project. The autonomously and distributed controlled chargers connecting four EVs are integrated into the Energy System Integration Lab (SYSLAB) of the Technical University of Denmark. The conducted tests aim at different flexibility services, namely power sharing, RES following, and transformer protection. The developed chargers fulfil the assigned tasks and are able to provide ancillary services to the grid and RES.
