Increasing requirements of electric vehicles with different capacities of batteries and increasing number of small-sized renewable energy sources lead to complexity of calculations, voltage drop, power quality loss, and unevenness in the load curve. This paper proposes a modified version of the mean-field decentralized method to smooth the load curve, maximize vehicle owners' profit, and meet vehicle owners’ demands. Different capacity of batteries is a challenging problem in the charging and discharging control of electric vehicles; so to solve this problem, a weighted average method is used, which determines the design weighting parameters based on the capacity of batteries. Finally, a comparison has been made between five different centralized and decentralized strategies with weighted and weightless average methods.
