Fast Charging vs . Slow Charging : Pros and cons for the New Age of Electric Vehicles

  title={Fast Charging vs . Slow Charging : Pros and cons for the New Age of Electric Vehicles},
  author={Charles Botsford and Adam Szczepanek},
This paper presents the issues facing the future widespread use of electric vehicles (EVs) relative to battery charging infrastructure for both fast charging and slow charging. In particular, we discuss: • Charge scheme definitions: What is fast charging? What is slow charging? • Infrastructure requirements and grid impacts: The role of connectors, charger/vehicle communications, time-of-use electricity costs, and grid upgrades/synergies. • The trades between cycle life and charge schemes for… CONTINUE READING
