Abstract

We have developed the road traffic simulator to analyze the location of EV running out of electricity and the number of charging EV at each charging station(ST). We also have proposed the search algorithm for the effective layout of charging STs based on the location of EV running out of electricity by the road traffic simulator. That algorithm has been installed into the traffic simulator. The layout of charging STs is successfully determined to reduce the number of EV running out of electricity, and it does not depend on the initial input of the location of the charging ST and the complexity of the road network.
