An Ultrafast EV Charging Station Demonstrator

This paper deals with the design of a grid-friendly ultrafast electric vehicle charging demonstrator. High charging power and short charging times impose peaks to an electricity distribution system, which necessitate over-dimensioning of the grid connection. A mitigation option lies in partial decoupling the load from the grid, achieved with the application of energy storage elements. A calculation methodology for energy storage elements is proposed and their interconnection possibilities to an ultrafast EV charging spot discussed.
