Electric Vehicle Charging Station Load Forecasting and Impact of the Load Curve
With the popularity of electric vehicles, a large number of charging stations connected to the grid, will bring about tremendous influence on the power, voltage and current of grid. This paper briefly introduces several common types of charging mode, and analyzes the characteristics of them. According to statistics, a resistive model of charging stations, simulating the regional power grid with a IEEE34 node model, has been established to forecast the daily load curve, using Monte Carlo simulation. An analysis is performed for a power grid to demonstrate the impacts of the daily load curve considering different power of charging stations, which are under coordinated charging conditions, to indicate the harm of uncoordinated charging and put forward solutions.
