This study aims to quantity the impact of uncontrolled charging of Electric Vehicles (EVs) on the low voltage distribution networks with increasing EV penetration levels. For this objective, key indicators are developed to show the magnitude, scale and duration of the impact on the distribution network. The disseminated results are based on the case study with actual data from the existing distribution networks. The findings of this paper can serve as a benchmark for determining the potential of smart EV charging algorithms and/or the extent of necessary infrastructural reinforcement that the grid operators must incorporate.
