Abstract

The market for Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEVs) is expected to grow significantly over the next few years and a number of new products are soon to come onto the market, such as the Toyota Prius plug-in version, . The charging demand of wide-scale use of PHEVs may have a significant impact on domestic electricity loads and could risk of overloading the power system if appropriate charging strategies not applied to prevent this. A Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS) model of domestic PHEV use and availability has been developed based on probabilistic characterisations obtained from UKTUS and quantifies charging demand of PHEVs as a function of time of day. The MCS model has been developed in order to simulate the impact on the electricity distribution system. This article also discusses the potential for responsive battery charging load from PHEVs.
