Challenges and requirements of electric vehicle fleet charging at company parking sites
The uprising number of electric vehicles on company parking sites creates a variety of challenges, in terms of scheduling charging processes. In uncoordinated charging, peaks loads can occur that harm the low voltage grid and make the company pay a higher electricity bill. Further, some vehicles may not be charged enough to be used for service appointments at customer homes. In a first step, this paper highlights the individual problems in detail that can appear in a company parking scenario. Next, it is shown that charging scheduling in a company case is not trivial. Finally, requirements to a software-based solution of the challenges are derived from the individual problems.
