    Abstract

    We present the problem of locating a limited number of electric vehiclecharging stations for a given set of trip chains, each of which consistsof a series of linked short trips and is represented by a sequence ofintervening stops along the trip chain. The objective of this problemis to maximize the number of trip chains that can be completed by the electric vehicle without running out of battery. A mixed-integer programmingformulation as well as a heuristic for solving this problemwill be presented.
