Abstract

As one of the promising initiatives for environmental preservation, electric vehicles (EVs) have been deploying in many countries. However, the limited drivable range of EV usually necessitates mid-way re-charging for long-distance journey, which is one of the most concerning issues in EV driving. Given limited public charging resources, EV drivers easily suffer from serious “range anxiety”, in particular when the queuing time at the charging station is long. Therefore, it is important to distribute the EV flows to the right charging stations for recharging, while at the same time, to minimize the overall journey time. In this paper, such an issue is formulated as an optimization problem and solved by a dedicated flow distribution algorithm (FDA). The practical usage of the design is demonstrated by extensive simulations upon the eastern Massachusetts highway network.
