Technical and Economic Evaluation of the Electric Vehicle Charging Network Planning Scheme

Junhai Wang, Lingling Ming, and Dayang Yu
Abstract—Electric vehicle (EV) is an important solution for the traffic and environment problems in cities. However, to plan and build the energy supply and service network is always a challenging work all over the world. This paper is based on the planning of a real charge-swap service network for the electric vehicle in Hangzhou city, China. First, this paper defined the service radius for a network and developed the technical evaluation model; second, the economic evaluation model is proposed based mainly on the investment analysis considering the operating cost and earnings of the network. A case study is presented to show the application of the proposed evaluation method for a real charge-swap service network with a three-hierarchy structure.

Index Terms—Electric vehicles, planning, technical evaluation, economic evaluation.
