Ensuring Efficient And Sustainable Electric Vehicle Charging
The article authored by Ijlal Ullah Khan, Analyst at PTR Inc. highlights that industries are heavily investing in EV charging stations to accommodate the increasing number of electric vehicles (EVs). Despite the essential role of power in EV infrastructure, electricity supply and power loads are often overlooked until incidents occur. Therefore, it is crucial to implement EV charging strategies that minimize incidents and prolong the lifespan of existing grid infrastructure. To accommodate the growing number of EV charging stations worldwide, tailored load management strategies specific to location requirements are necessary for efficient EV charging. Load management is essential for optimizing EV charging and reducing grid load during peak demand hours. Load management prevents grid overloads, balances energy consumption leading to reduced environmental impact, enhanced grid resilience, cost efficiency, and improved EV driver experience. Three load management techniques include unmanaged charging, static load management, and dynamic load management, each offering different levels of control over charging loads to ensure efficient and reliable EV charging. Various EV charging strategies exist to meet diverse user needs, including priority charging, balanced charging, series charging, proportional charging, PV surplus charging, and scheduled charging. Each method offers unique advantages and is tailored to different scenarios, emphasizing the need for careful consideration of user needs when implementing EV charging strategies. Properly maintained EV charging infrastructure enables load balancing, optimizing schedules based on grid conditions and demand, thereby fostering a stable energy grid.
