Implementation of a parking choice model to analyse the effect of parking prices on electric vehicles
- Bachelor Thesis
The increasing market penetration of electric vehicles makes it inevitable to consider their specific behaviour in terms of stationary traffic. It has to be investigated where charging infrastructure should be placed, which kind of charging infrastructure should be provided and how to make optimum use of the existing charging infrastructure by changing policies. This thesis presents a parking choice model which considers both conventional and electric vehicles. Therefore an existing model was extended by two additional variables to consider the charging behaviour of electric vehicles. Further the integration of the model into the agent based transport simulation framework MATSim is documented. Additionally an example for the application of the model in policy studies is given using the enriched Sioux Falls scenario. The required integration of parking and charging infrastructure into the scenario as well as further adaptations are described in this work. The evaluation of the experiments showed that the aim to make electric vehicle driving more attractive by reducing walking distances could be accomplished by modified policies Show more
