Nowadays, electrification is one of the most popular developing trends for traditional transportation system. To accomplish the electrification, some critical infrastructures (e.g., power grids and transportation networks) need to be reliable. In recent years, lots of efforts have been put to investigate the robustness of these services. But many of them only consider the services independently while they actually interact with each other in many aspects. The overall object of this paper is to investigate one of these interactions, the impact of transportation activities of PEVs on the power distribution system, especially regarding the stability and efficiency. The transportation network and the power distribution system are obtained from a large-scale penetration of plug-in electric vehicles in the metropolitan area. This paper proposes a comprehensive co-modeling and simulation platform for investigating the impact of PEV charging in the real world.
