ServiCe OPtimization of charging station for Electrified vehicles

Fast-charging Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCSs) will have a limited amount of charging slots, and a limited total charging power dictated by the strength of their connection to the grid and by their rated power. Electric Vehicles (EVs) will therefore have to share the utilization of EVCSs, which is a resource allocation problem where the shared resources are time slots and charging power.


This project aims at improving this situation by trying to answer the following questions: (Q1) how should the locations of charging stations be determined?; (Q2) how can pricing policies for charging stations be designed?; (Q3) what information ought to be exchanged between the vehicles and the charging stations?; (Q4) which are the probable future stakeholders and applications in a future where vehicles extensively are harvesting grid electricity?
