Analysis of Electric Vehicle Traffic Considering Recharging Behavior

There are several problems that should be solved in order to raise the penetration rate of electric vehicle (EV). One problem is the short cruising distance that makes EVs frequently recharged. Long recharge time is another problem. However, it is believed that EVs can contribute to the conservation of energy and environment. This study aims at analysing the actual recharging behavior by traffic simulation and optimizing the placement of recharging stations. To take into account the electricity consumption of EVs in the simulation, trip chains of each EV are estimated from existing Origin-Destination volume data and the simulation model is customized. The study area is the inside of Ring Route 8 in Metropolitan Tokyo and its vicinity, Japan. This study also examines the potential congestion caused by recharging behavior of EV.
