We develop and analyze a measure-valued fluid model keeping track of parking and charging requirements of electric vehicles in a local distribution grid. We show how this model arises as an accumulation point of an appropriately scaled sequence of stochastic network models. The invariant point of the fluid model encodes the electrical characteristics of the network and the stochastic behavior of its users, and it is characterized, when it exists, by the solution of a so-called Alternating Current Optimal Power Flow (ACOPF) problem.
