Has anybody seen an academic style analysis on the Supercharger model, where queueing theory is applied in order to determine how well it's going to work as a function of total cars sold?
This is not my area of expertise, but I am guessing that this branch of science should be able to tell us how many Supercharger stalls are needed as a function of Teslas being driven, such that it is more likely than not that a charging stall is available upon arrival there.
Gas stations work because of their quantities (about 125,000 in the US) and short visit intervals (less than 5 minutes/car right?)...
Things are fine now, but what about in 1 year, 2 years, 3 years; especially when certain collective actions are known to occur, like thousands of people from Atlanta heading to the Gulf Coast at the same time on Memorial Day weekend.
If anyone can point me to a quality analysis I'd be interested!
