Locating road-vehicle refueling stations
This study follows the concept of set cover for proposing a refueling-station-location model using a mixed integer programming method, based on vehicle-routing logics. Its solution uses only the easy-obtain data of the origin-destination distance matrix. A case study that focuses on the siting of refueling stations for achieving multiple origin-destination intercity travel via electric vehicles on Taiwan demonstrates the applicability of the model. Sensitivity analysis shows that greater vehicle range will result in a lower number of refueling stations that need to be sited. Range is crucial in reducing the facility-location costs, and therefore is an important issue in the development of alternative-fuel-vehicle technology.
