Optimal Planning of Charging Station for Phased Electric Vehicle


Construction of electric vehicle charging station is the premise of the popularity of electric vehicles. In this paper, electric vehicle charging facilities planning is divided into two stages: public demonstration stage and commercial operation stage. In public demonstration stage, This Paper applies maximal covering model into charging station location, and then be solved by the branch and bound method. In commercial operation stage, the charging station’s service areas division is studied based on Voronoi diagram. With the concerning technical restrains, an optimal planning method is presented for newly-increased station positioning and service region division. The method using the most greatly air circuit method and local dynamic characteristics of Voronoi diagram guarantees the reasonable distribution of stations. Then charging station model of optimal load allocation is established by using M/M/c model. In the end, the correctness and validity of the model is verified through simulation of charging station planning.
