The paper proposed a method of locating and sizing of charging station for electric vehicle based on grid partition. This method is aimed at minimizing the users' loss on the way to the charging station, zoning the planning area with grid partition method, and choosing the best location of each partition in GA (Genetic Algorithm) on the consideration of traffic density and charging station's capacity constraints. Through repeated calculations and adjusting the coverage of each partition and the sites of charging stations, this paper will finally get the reasonable planning of electric vehicle charging station in the whole area. The practical example proves that the methods and models in this paper are feasible.
