With the rise of new energy vehicles, the coverage of charging piles is becoming more and more extensive, so it is necessary to study the charging demand. In this paper, a charging demand prediction model is constructed by using the BP neural network based on the whale optimization algorithm, and an empirical study is carried out by taking a charging pile in Shanghai as an example. The research results show that the MAPE of the WOA-BP neural network is about 7.65% lower than that of the BP neural network, which shows that WOA-BPNN model is more suitable for the prediction of charging demand and its prediction results can provide a certain decision-making basis for the allocation and deployment of charging piles in the future.
