The increasing adoption of renewable energy sources, such as solar power, coupled with the growing popularity of electric vehicles (EVs), has opened up new opportunities for bidirectional power flow between various energy systems. This research paper explores the bidirectional power flow between a solar-integrated grid, electric vehicles, and residential homes. Specifically, it focuses on the benefits, challenges, and potential applications of power exchange between these entities. The paper discusses the technical aspects, economic implications, and environmental considerations of bidirectional power flow, highlighting the potential for enhanced grid stability, energy efficiency, and carbon footprint reduction. Additionally, the study addresses the impact of bidirectional power flow on grid infrastructure, smart grid technologies, and policy frameworks. By shedding light on the interplay between the solar-integrated grid, electric vehicles, and residential homes, this research paper aims to contribute to the advancement of sustainable and intelligent energy systems.

Keywords: Electric vehicles (EVs), Bidirectional power flow, Solar-integrated grid, Smart grid technologies, and intelligent energy systems.
