Interrogating the Relation between E-Mobility Recharging Network Design and Drivers' Charging Behaviour

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNChapter



In this article we report on research into patterns of electric vehicle (EV) commuters' movement and behavior in a road network. The design of the charging network is a function of its size and the distribution of the charging points. It consists of several spatial design qualities, configuration attributes, travel demand, and users charging patterns. This study introduces the spatial configuration of an active e-mobility system through a case study. The article investigates the correlation between the design characteristics of EV recharging infrastructure and its usability. We need to explore the variations in individual charging behavior within the EV population to understand the movement patterns in the network. Using data of over 500 EV drivers charging their cars using Recharging facilities (RFs) over a three-year time, we clustered the EV population based on the charging patterns. Design configuration analysis is conducted using DepthMap; charging patterns are captured by the infrastructure service provider.
