Optimal Deployment of Charging Stations for Electric Vehicular Networks
In a smart city environment, the authors look at a new, upcoming generation of vehicles running on electric power supplied by on-board batteries. Best recharging options include charging at home, as well as charging at public areas. In this setting, electric vehicles will be informed about public charging stations using wireless communications. As the charging stations are shared resources, cooperating electric vehicles have the potential to avoid unbalanced use of recharging stations and lengthy waiting times. They present a model for electric vehicles and their battery depletion, vehicle mobility, charging stations, and give a solution for optimal placement of charging stations in a smart city.
