Shaping EV Charging Patterns

Shaping EV Charging Patterns

June 11, 2024 | Online :: Central Time

“Great Event, speakers were organized, professional, and answered every question effectively.” Electric Vehicle Specialist, Energy New England

This course will explore different charging patterns for electric vehicles and how they correspond to electric utility demand curves.  Actual vehicle models and available charging stations will be used as examples to walk through a time-series analysis of how uncontrolled charging strains the grid during high demand periods. 

Potential solutions to this limitation that benefit both the utility operator and individual or fleet manager will be identified. 

This course will avoid the use of complex mathematics and analytics and will instead focus on using visualizations to build comfort and confidence in the concepts.

Learning Outcomes

  • Define terms and quantities that are critical to assessing the impact of electric vehicles on the grid
  • Identify impacted components of the electric system and their limitations
  • Review utility demand curves and why they are shaped the way they are today
  • Recognize how flexibility in electric vehicle charging patterns can work against or solve grid limitations
  • Assess why industry solutions, such as direct load control or time of use rates, are effective mitigations that can be mutually beneficial
  • Be able to effectively communicate the challenges and opportunities to stakeholders

  • Walk through an annual cycle of utility supply and demand to understand peak conditions, light load, availability of different types of generation throughout the year
  • Identify when specific components of the electric grid are at their most stressed and when they have flexibility
  • Define curve shapes for EV charging including frequency of charging, peak demand, and total energy consumed

12:00 – 1:00 p.m. :: Break for Lunch

1:00 – 2:00 p.m. :: Challenges Caused by Increased EV Adoption

3:00 – 3:30 p.m. :: Afternoon Break

3:30 – 4:00 pm. :: Opportunities from Vehicle to Grid

  • Using the concepts previously established, walk through the impacts on utility demand curves if EVs act as a source instead of a load
  • Size the opportunity for a utility and how to build a value stream out of this application
  • Identify challenges and mitigations from an EV operator perspective

4:00 – 4:30 p.m. :: The Future of Electric Vehicle Integration

  • Coordinating EVs and distributed renewable energy
  • Integrating EVs into whole home or business consumption strategies
  • Evolving battery technology for fast charging
