Mass production of total electric vehicles capable of traveling longer distances results in a need for electric service stations that can satisfy the requirements for a significant amount of power provided in a time duration similar to that of filling a car with oil-based fuel. These vehicles would pull into the station, and need a large amount of power delivered over a short period of time for the rapid recharging of batteries which serve as their “fuel tank.” This paper investigates the effect of fast-charging electric vehicles on an existing utility company distribution system at several specified sites. This paper will cover power-flow, short-circuit, and protection studies at these sites using utility-grade software packages. In addition, the analysis of simulations of a recharging station where up to eight rapidly rechargeable vehicles come online at once will be presented.
