Title: Characterize Clustering of Non-Residential Alternating Current Level 2 Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment

Abstract

The EVSE deployed by The EV Project included both residential and non-residential units. Approximately 4,000 non-residential AC Level 2 (ACL2) EVSE were installed in workplace environments, fleet applications and those publicly accessible located near retail centers, parking lots, and similar locations. The Blink ACL2 is capable of charging at up to 7.2 kW power, although most vehicles in The EV Project charged at about 3.7 kW. The charge rate and energy consumed to recharge the battery are determined by the plug-in electric vehicle’s (PEV’s) on-board battery management system. The impact on the local electrical grid becomes greater when several EVSE are charging PEVs on a site at the same time, or when several commercial EVSE sites are geographically close and charging simultaneously. This may place stresses on the local power transformer providing energy to these sites. What insight can The EV Project data provide in characterizing the effect of several geographically close non-residential EVSE?
