Abstract—Fast charging station is one type of charging method which can charge battery of electric vehicle (EV) in not over an hour. It can supply rapidly electric power to charge EV like gasoline pump station for internal combustion engine car.So it will be most popular charging station for EV customer in the future. This paper proposes direction of development of fast charging station for Thailand. Review of EV type in Thailand is presented in this paper. Benefit of fast charging station is compared with other type of charging station. Service model for fast charging station in Thailand is proposed in this paper. Barrier of fast charging station in Thailand is discussed in order to find out direction of development. Finally, method to determine the number of fast charging for each area is proposed in mathematic equation as well as calculation example of some area.
Index Terms—Battery electric vehicle (BEV), plug in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), fast charging station.
