Impact of Fast Charging on Life of EV Batteries

Ahmad Pesaran, Eric Wood, Evan Burton, Kandler Smith, Jeremy Neubauer

Research output: NRELPresentation


Utilization of public charging infrastructure is heavily dependent on user-specific travel behavior. The availability of fast chargers can positively affect the utility of battery electric vehicles, even given infrequent use. Estimated utilization rates do not appear frequent enough to significantly impact battery life. Battery thermal management systems are critical in mitigating dangerous thermal conditions on long distance tours with multiple fast charge events.
