The increase of greenhouse gasses effect is one of the causes of climate change. The use of vehicles with fossil fuels is one of the contributors to pollution and global warming. Another reason why dependence on it should be reduced is the lack of Indonesia's petroleum reserves compared to other OPEC countries. Researchers are trying to anticipate this by developing electric vehicles capable of operating without pollution. Implementation of electric vehicles has begun with the electric train, tram, electric bus, and others. Vehicles with rails get electricity supplies from the grid along the tracks, but the type of freely moving vehicle without a rail requires another way to get electricity supplies. Electric vehicles with power storage (battery) have an advantage in the roaming area if supported by proper recharging techniques. In electric vehicles, the battery is recharged by the direct charging process or swapped with other one (swapping). If the vehicle has high mobility, such as public transport (bus) then the shortest charging time may be very important.
