Abstract

Battery charging of Electric Vehicles (EVs) will increase the power demand in distribution networks. It is anticipated that this will cause voltage drops, thermal overloads and an increase in losses. These impacts will be affected by the behaviour of the owners of EVs. A typical 3-phase LV residential distribution network model is used to evaluate the effects of EV battery charging on distribution networks with Distributed Generation (DG). The uncertainties associated with the ownership of EVs, the rating of charging equipment, the occurrence and the duration of charging, together with the spatial distribution uncertainties of DG installation, were addressed with a probabilistic approach. A case study was performed for the year 2030, considering three EV and two DG penetration levels. A control function which reschedules EV battery charging was defined based on customer preferences and distribution network constraints. Thermal overloads, voltage drops, and losses associated with each case were reported. The effects of the coordinated EV battery charging on these impacts were analysed.
