In this paper, statistical charging load modeling of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) in electricity distribution networks is studied. Usefulness of National Travel Survey data in the modeling is investigated, and a novel modeling methodology is proposed where detailed car use habits are taken into account and statistical distributions of charging energies can be produced. Using the modeling methodology some example calculation results of a Finnish case study are presented with further analysis and sensitivity studies. The example calculations are made mostly from viewpoint of the Finnish distribution networks and their modeling traditions but the method can be applied internationally when relevant travel survey data is available. Example calculations are analyzed in order to assess reasonability and practical usability of the models. The models produced by the methodology can easily be used in network calculation tools commonly used by distribution network operators.
