Demand Calculation Method for Electric Vehicle Charging Station Locating and Deployment
To develop, plan, implement and operate the electric road mobility system, especially the charging infrastructure, the existing and potential demand must be revealed for several time horizons. Accordingly, the aim of the research was to elaborate a calculation method for electric vehicle charging demand and to determine the public charging infrastructure locating principles. The research questions were: how many and what kind of vehicles will be used; where, when and how long they will be charged; what aspects and how influence the charging station deployment. The number of charging points to be installed, the energy demand and capacity management parameters can be also determined using the revealed correlations. The calculation method is adaptable to any territorial unit and any time horizon. It is the basis of charging station locating methods, which is demonstrated through two novel geoinformatics applications.
