Electric car sharing charging station location optimization with limited vehicle relocation

Overview

Abstract

This presentation focuses on finding optimal locations for charging stations for one-way electric  car sharing programs. The relocation of vehicles by a service staff is generally required in vehicle sharing programs in order to correct imbalances in the network. We seek to limit the need for vehicle relocation by strategic location of charging stations given estimates of traffic flow. The optimization problem is formulated as a mixed-integer linear program. A solution technique as well as preliminary simulation results will be presented.
