Optimisation of locally connected renewables for high power EV charging station

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Constantly increasing uptake of Electric Vehicles
(EVs) necessitates a rapidly growing and evolving network of
charging stations, including rapid charging systems which
attempt to make up for the issue of slow charging. Rapid
charging systems, however, can be difficult to implement in
larger scale due to the heavy energy supply capacity required
and the disruptive nature of the load that they place on the
electrical network. This paper examines some of the potential
benefits that can be seen by incorporating a Battery Electrical
Storage System and directly connected Renewable Energy
Systems into EV Rapid charger installations, as well as some of
the ways that energy may be managed in such a system.
