The uncertainties related to when and where electric vehicles will charge in the future requires the development of stochastic based approaches to identify the corresponding load scenarios. This paper describes a tool based on Monte Carlo techniques to be used for distribu- tion grid planning, providing a characterization of possible grid operation conditions, regarding voltage profiles, branch loading, grid peak power and energy losses. A medium voltage network based on real data is used to illustrate the application of the developed methodology. Keywords: Driving Patterns, Electric Vehicle
