The need for proper fast charging infrastructures is one of the key challenges for the wide adoption of elec- trical vehicles (EV). The high pulsating demand of fast charging stations (FCS) together with high demand tariffs can cause monthly DSO demand charges to account for a significant fraction of a station’s electric bill. Therefore,...

A future rise in electrical energy demand is expected due to the electrification of the thermal energy supply and the rise in popularity of the Electric Vehicle (EV). This rise in the electrical energy demand results in needed investments in the electrical energy infrastructure to prevent congestion at the transformer due to the higher peak of...

Accurately forecasting charging demand is a major factor in energy providers’ ability to meet said demand. A number of methods have been proposed in the literature. This master thesis aims to provide a framework for energy providers to forecast charging demand due to increased EV adoption. Specifically, this research examines the effects that...

Although electric vehicles were first used as early as the 19th century, they have only recently gained popularity. By charging them with renewable sources, electric vehicles present a route to zero or low emission mobility. This is a significant reason for their recent popularity given the climate crisis. However, the integration of electric...

By analysing existing agent-based model (ABM) charging behaviour formalisations, this study evaluates the impact of a new static band-width network tariff structure on charging demand. Additionally, this approach enables a comparative study to reflect upon the susceptibility and value of the ABM method. Based on the simulation results, this...

The penetration of renewable energy sources is increasing every year and that poses a lot of challenges in the distribution system. Since they are intermittent in nature, they cannot serve the energy demand as stand alone sources without the help of storage technologies or stable energy sources. As the RES, especially the Photo Voltaic...

Transport sector CO2 emissions are on the rise and responsible for nearly 30% of the EU’s total CO2 emissions (European Parliament,2019). An attractive way to reduce the CO2 emissions by transport is by changing the fuel used. Hydrogen is expected to play a key role in a clean, secure and affordable energy future (IEA). However, a clean,...

The current city charging network for electric vehicle (EV) is mainly composed of low-speed charging points. When the number of EVs increase dramatically in the future, the current charging network needs to be upgraded with more charging stations and fast-charging (FC) facilities. We build a mixed-integer programming (MIP) model to propose an...

The need for sustainable practises in all walks of society are more pressing than ever, with the effects of climate change being felt worldwide. Furthermore, the increasing share of variable and decentralised power generators coupled with the growing electricity demands from electric vehicles (EVs) at irregular times is placing unprecedented...

The parallel connection of a Silicon (Si)-based IGBT and a Silicon Carbide (SiC)-based MOSFET forming a so called hybrid switch can be used to capitalize on the advantageous features of both semiconductor and materials technologies. In this thesis, a hybrid switch-based inverter designed for the application of Electric Vehicle (EV) traction...

The automotive industry plays a crucial role in battling the climate crisis and reducing emissions. Medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles alone contribute to one-fourth of global emissions in the transport sector and there is a positive trend in the demand for these vehicles. Battery Electric Trucks have the potential to transform the growing...

Although the idea of electric vehicles fell out of favour in the 1930s, it seems this phenomenon is now reversing and that many companies are willing to invest again on this technology. The advantages are clear: no emissions and the possibility to power vehicles by means of sustainable sources. On the other hand, a high number of simultaneously...

Over the last decade the share of electric vehicles has increased and will continue to increase in the future in order to reduce the carbon footprint by transportation. However, the battery voltage is not standardised and can differ per car model. To reduce the charging time, a high power converter is preferred. Moreover, in order to utilise the...

Building models for an electric vehicles usage data set in order to simulate virtual populations of these electric vehicle users. With these simulated populations charging strategies for electric vehicle users could be developed in order to improve the use of electric vehicles. The modeling is done with copula functions, and are compared with...

Urban transshipment network is a transshipment solution for last-mile distribution in dense metropolitan regions. In this network, a set of micro hubs located in the urban areas are used for deconsolidating shipments and transferring them from high capacity vehicles to light freight vehicles that eventually deliver to customer locations. Due to...

Wireless power transfer (WPT) is becoming a popular choice for charging of batteries in various applications. Particularly, the increase in popularity of electrical vehicles (EVs) and the pursuit of user convenience for charging the batteries makes WPT an attractive solution. The usage of WPT in e-transportation is not straightforward because...

As the energy transition is expected to increase the number of imbalances in the following years, more flexibility is needed to mitigate these imbalances. Electric Vehicles (EV) can provide this flexibility by adjusting their charging speed. An aggregator can provide this flexibility of many EVs to the balancing markets. However, since EVs are...
