Abstract

Electric vehicle node controllers in accordance with embodiments of the invention enable adaptive charging. One embodiment includes one or more centralized computing systems; a communications network; a plurality of electric vehicle node controllers, where each electric vehicle node controller in the plurality of node controllers contains: a network interface; a processor; a memory containing: an adaptive charging application; a plurality of electric vehicle node parameters describing charging parameters of an electric vehicle node in the electric vehicle charging network; where the processor is configured by the adaptive charging application to: send electric vehicle node parameters to the one or more centralized computing systems; and charge the electric vehicle node using a charging rate received from the one or more centralized computing systems; where the one or more centralized computing systems is configured to: receive the electric vehicle node parameters from the plurality of electric vehicle node controllers; calculate a plurality of charging rates for the plurality of electric vehicle node controllers using the electric vehicle node parameters, a plurality of adaptive charging parameters, and a cost function; and send the charging rates to the plurality of electric vehicle node controllers.
