Abstract—This work proposes an EV charging management mechanismand utilizes the scheduling systems for the charging stations to determine when to store electricity into batteries according to the real-time electricity price and charging requirement of EVs. A charging suggestion module is presented in this work to locate the most suitable charging station or battery exchange station for the EVs according to the available information in hand. When an EV cannot reach at any charging station due to the lack of electricity, a mobile charging vehicle management module is used to assisting the EV in finding a suitable mobile charging vehicle for recharging. The experimental results show that the proposed work can balance the loading of battery charging and exchange stations, and lower the load peak to make electricity cost down. Besides, the proposed charging suggestion module can decrease the driving distance of EVs for finding the charging stations and the waiting time wasted while charging. The mobile charging vehicle management module can effectively prevent EVs from halting on the road owing to running out of the electricity.

Index Terms—Charging suggestion, preload, electric vehicle, load-balancing.
