Innovative Charging Strategies for Light-, Medium-, and Heavy-Duty Electric Vehicles

The environmental impacts of transportation on air quality and public health can be clearly seen in the California South Coast region, which has some of the worst air pollution in the nation due to transportation activities. Consequently, it is crucial to increase research related to vehicle electrification, support innovative charging solutions and technologies, align electric vehicle (EV) charging with renewable generation and local grid needs, and to study light-, medium-, and heavy-duty EV fleets management and scheduling. This project will study the response in EV charging behavior by implementing a carbon-based pricing scheme and studying activity patterns of drayage trucks operations by simulating different opportunity charging scenarios to estimate state of charge (SOC) and load profiles.
