Abstract

The future penetration of electric vehicles into the transportation sector is unknown. However, if off peak recharging of electric vehicles is employed, considerable improvement in daily load factor is possible. Similarly, load management methods to shift peak load to off-peak periods will also improve load factor. The impact of electric vehicle deployment on load management strategies primarily occurs in two areas: (i) reduction in effectiveness of load factor improvement of either electric vehicle deployment or load management strategies due to the action of the other and (ii) inadvertent addition to peak demand by electric vehicle load. These and other factors are considered in this paper and several practical considerations of recharging of electric vehicles are summarized.
