    Abstract

    The following document has been prepared in partial fulfillment of the requirements as a Bachelor of Science at WPI. The authors, Kazim Naqvi and Timothy Yee, are submitting this document as an IQP/MQP in lieu of the above mentioned requirements. The authors will address the possible impact of the advent of Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles in Massachusetts for National Grid. The authors will be utilizing Systems Dynamics Modeling as the basis for experimentation. The results of various modeling, research, and sensitivity exercises conducted during the course of this project show that PHEV's do take off and attain a sustainable value, as was the desired outcome. The impact on National Grid is minimal and the daily electric demand variation does not change significantly.
