Title: Empirical analysis of electric vehicle fast charging under cold temperatures

Abstract

This paper presents an empirical analysis of the effects of temperature on Direct Current Fast Charger (DCFC) charging rate and discusses the impact of such effects on wider adoptions of electric vehicles (EVs). The authors conducted statistical analysis on the effects of temperature and constructed an electric vehicle charging model that can show the dynamics of DCFC charging process under different temperatures. The results indicate that DCFC charging rate can deteriorate considerably in cold temperatures. These findings may be used as a reference to identify and assess the regions that may suffer from slow charging. In conclusion, the problems associated with temperature effects on DCFC charging deserve greater attention as electrification of motor vehicles progresses and DCFC usage increases in the future.
