Electric vehicles (EVs) are now acceptable to its customer as their sales have grown by 148% compared to last year. In March, a total of 140,509 units of EVs including 2W and 3W are sold.

The Indian government’s ambition is to have EV sales accounting for 30% of private cars, 70% of commercial vehicles, and 80% of 2W and 3W by 2030.

In India, on average, a household needs 5.7 kWh per day of electricity. So a car (Tata Nexon has 40.5 kWh) with having 40 kWh capacity battery consumes energy equal to 6-7 households alone.

1. Voltage Instability and Phase Unbalance 2. Overloading of Distribution Network Components 3. Harmonics Distortion

EV charging has the following negative impacts on power grids


#1. By using proper charging algorithms: 1. Smart Charging 2. Delayed Charging

Ways to Minimize EV Impact on Power Grid


Integrating solar and wind energy into charging stations creates reliable power and reduces strain on the grid, minimizing negative impacts.
