Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Increasing electric vehicle (EV) charging loads can increase the magnitude and duration of conventional peaks in demand profiles and even shift them significantly, causing operational violations in the distribution grid. It is important to develop tools to quantify the impacts of injecting large number of EV charging loads and determine the available capacity of the existing distribution feeder for the safe operation of the grid. Such tools would enable utilities to better prepare for grid operations in the near future while exploring the impact and effectiveness of strategies such as peak pricing and smart charging in managing these loads. This paper evaluates the hosting capacity of some real-world feeders to accommodate EV charging loads, including extreme fast-charging (xFC) options.
