The strong interaction between electric vehicles and the charging infrastructure presents new challenges towards system-level optimization. Moreover choices between the power level, duration, and frequency of charging events can have direct impact both on energy efficiency, as well as the overall lifetime of vehicles. This paper presents a preliminary study into the optimization scheme for such systems, with the focus on an electric bus application. The results illustrate an energy saving when comparing the EMS and baseline strategy of ~ 1.6%improvement measured in kWh/km, alongside a potential cycle life prolongation factor improvement of the EMS compared to the baseline is 1.5 in average.
