The increasing penetration of electric vehicles (EV) has increased the installation of EV charging stations (EVCS). Companies believe that the intensive establishment of EVCS will solve the EV range anxiety. However, the increase in the local grid loading due to EVCS should be considered. Although traditional energy generations would be decreased continuously with the technological developments due to greenhouse gas emissions, local networks still need these systems when demand is high. Therefore, an alternative proposal is necessary to alleviate the burden of the local grid and overcome the environmental pollution problems. This study was carried out to meet the regional needs of EVCS installed in the parking lot of Yıldız Technical University Faculty of Electrical and Electronics using HOMER Grid for techno-economic optimization. The impacts of hourly and daily demand variations on the optimal sizing of hybrid systems are examined.
