|Abstract:||This article presents a novel electric vehicle (EV) charging system model. The model introduces power constraints in the grid-to-battery converter to improve modelling accuracy. Simulation results of the presented model indicate EV charging impact on a low-voltage electricity grid. Even though most of the battery charging load is spread evenly during desired times (e.g. off-peak load during night), power constraints of the EV model result in narrow peak loads. Plug-in EVs bring additional load to the electricity grid. If not managed properly, high EV deployment may lead to unnecessary grid investments due to high-peak currents of EV charging. Rising numbers of grid connected EVs is a challenging task in the future electricity grid planning. Thus an accurate EV charging system model is essential for reliable analysis of EV deployment.|
