2024 11th International Conference on Power and Energy Systems Engineering (CPESE 2024)

Special Session 1

EV charging systems and infrastructure

Abstract: EVs play an important role in decarbonization policies of different countries. The expansion and reliability of the charging network has been identified as an important item in engagement of owners in the electrification programs. In addition, the charging demand of an EV is much larger than other electric equipment; thus, unmanaged charging can lead to disruptions to the local grid. Despite the massive demand increase due to charging, EVs are considered flexible loads, and can be managed by smart charging algorithms using effective tariff structures, incentives, and smart scheduling. Smart green charging algorithms can move the charging demand to daytime to maximise the use of generation from photovoltaic solar panels. This special session reviews recent advances in this field.


Topics to cover:

This session covers the following research area (but is not limited to them):

• Implementation of the charging network

• Residential and fleet charging networks

• Reliability of the charging infrastructure

• Green EV charging

• Charging infrastructure for public transport

• implementation and operation of the Vehicle-to-grid technology

• Modelling of the charging demand

• EV charging in microgrids and islanded networks

• Applications of AI and Machine learning in EV charging

• Smart EV charging and scheduling

• EV-grid integration

• Optimal location and sizing of charging systems

• EV charging at scale

• Wireless EV charging

• Cybersecurity of EV charging network
