Electric vehicles (EVs) are playing a crucial role in achieving the carbon neutral goal. To make the charging experience comparable with the refueling of the gasoline cars, more and more chargers are installed and connected to the grid. Meanwhile, the charging power is going up. As a result, more and more power quality issues associated with EV charging events have already been reported. In this paper, the power quality issues that are relevant to EV charging, including flicker, harmonics, and supraharmonics, are summarized. Their generation mechanisms, harm to the grid, and the promising mitigation measures are discussed. Case studies are also done to mimic the power quality issues in EV charging, and verify the analysis.
