A Method of Site Selection for Fast Charging Stations

Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) has received a great deal of attention recently due to its environmentally friendly characteristics. The ability of fast charging the batteries of vehicles has become one of the most important factors that could limit the widespread use of the PEVs. Effective planning and installation of charging stations is also important to meet the needs of potential PEV drivers. Another concern for utility companies is to understand the necessary infrastructure requirements to minimize their impacts on the electric grid. This study presents a method of PEV demand estimation and site selection of fast charging stations to maximize the demand under cost and power grid constraints. A case study was performed and results show the feasibility and effectiveness of the method.
