Electric vehicles are considered as an asset to the smart grid to maximize economic and environmental performance under a variety of operating conditions. It is more important to maintain network resiliency during emergency conditions and disruptive events. This paper discusses the impact of smart grid-to-vehicle (G2V) and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) implementation on distribution systems and examines current scenarios. The V2G system has a strong impression on the main factors of the utility network such as the efficiency, reliability, loss of lines, and durability of the system. The paper also highlights the economic merits of the V2G concept that heavily doped on the scheme of charging/discharging and vehicle participation. The use of artificial intelligence techniques would also increase the performance of network connectivity soon. Moreover, the V2G technology is incorporated in the charging scenarios to convalesce the payback program of the existing solar grid system.
