This paper proposes a two-step methodology for scheduling electric vehicle (EV) charging, which limits the burden on distribution and transmission assets while ensuring all the vehicles are charged. In the first step, the number of vehicles to be charged during each hour is optimized based on day-ahead requests for charging. The second step determines the maximum number of vehicles that can be charged based on operating conditions during the next hour to ensure distribution reliability requirements are met. A numerical example is given to illustrate the EV charging management scheme. This technique will limit the effects of EV charging on distribution assets.
