Abstract: Advances in the development of electric vehicles, along with policy incentives, will see a wider uptake of this technology in the transport sector in future years. However, large penetrations of EVs could lead to adverse effects on power system networks, especially at the residential distribution network level. These effects could include excessive voltage drop and thermal loading of network components. A stochastic method is developed to take account of the uncertainties associated with EV charging and the technique is implemented on a residential test network using power system simulation software. The results show how voltage levels, component loading network losses are impacted from EV charging, taking into account the probabilistic behaviour of the EV owners.
