To Study the Changes in Power Factor & THD due to Electric Vehicle Charging

Vaishnavi D. Pimpalkar | Vishal M. Pimpalkar

Abstract: Electric Vehicles (EVs) are a clean energy alternative to gas and energy powered vehicles. They form a crucial part of the present and future automotive. Electric vehicles being non-linear loads could affect the power quality of the grid. In this paper, we present a view of the fluctuations in power factor and Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) levels when varying number of electric vehicles (two-wheeler and four-wheeler) are connected to the power system. The system was simulated and studied in Simulink. Here, a captive power plant that is supplying power under base load and peak load conditions is considered.

Keywords: Electric Vehicles, Charging Station, Captive Power Plant, Total Harmonic distortion, Power factor, Base load, Peak load
