Spatiotemporal Energy Demand Models for Electric Vehicles

Aiming to improve the energy management in large areas for sustainable transportation, this paper models the energy demand of electric vehicles (EVs) in an urban area as a function of location and time. One important consideration for the energy supply of a charging infrastructure is the characterization of the local charge energy demand as a function of time. Spatiotemporal formulations are derived for a number of scenarios, ranging from individual vehicles to global area demands to describe their three-dimension dynamical features. Furthermore, the perceived charging demand is modeled by considering real situations, e.g., parking time, remaining battery energy, and arrival and departure patterns. The proposed charging urgency model describes the probability of charging actions and then computes the perceived energy need in an urban area. Additionally, detailed simulations and analyses have been performed based on a simulated city to show the essential features of the introduced energy demand models.
