A Distribution Model of Electric Vehicle Charging Station
The location and the overall arrangement of the charging stations is an important problem with the development of electric vehicles. It is related to the charging needs, city planning, service level of charging station, geographic location and competitive ability and so on. A distribution model of EV charging station is introduced in the paper. In order to describe the model preferably, this paper introduces the attractive factor of charging stations and the area-different factor. The model can give the charging station rational positions by analyzing the data of the traffic flow and the electric-consuming-rate of cars on the road. A case study is given to illustrate the applying the model.
